I don't know why you would need to hack anything. It is just a plain NTSC video monitor, so you could just use the audio/vido inputs.
Does anyone use or have used this unit? I need to find out how to hack it to get the video and audio from my PC to this unit... it seems that the in dash unit I am getting is not the pioneer avx-505 as I previously posted but the Alpine CVA-1000
oh well...I am picking up the unit tonight to check it out and see if everything is in working order
Actually, yes, I used to have one and I know how to hack it. Let me know if you still need the info.

Sorry dude, I went to alpine's website and saw their "CVA-1003" and it said it had A/V inputs and I figured the 1000 did to. My bad.
Mine was kinda the same but I have a changer so I used a couple of relays to interupt the audio on the changer and get stereo input. BTW just get a 5 volt regulator and use that instead of an adaptor in your cig. I might even still have a hacked plug, I'll look around for it.
AdamF: Thanks for that info man ... i really appreciate it. This is why I love the ppl here =)
anywya...i just picked the alpine cva-1000 today... it was sort of uninstalled from a car... which had a vcr, alpine navigation, cd changer...the works.... anyway. All the wires are in a big box and i mean BIG... haha i went through the trouble of taking a pic of it bc it's not even funny...check it out LOL it's gonna take me a few years to figure everything out.
