    I believe I have solved the problem with the MDT-X7000 screen closing down.
    It is due to insufficient current, or voltage.
    Try running it from a very good power source, eg. the battery. Connect both the (Power and ACC wires) to "+" together, and the (Earth and Handbrake) to "-" together, for the test.
    If you are running it off the bench, ensure you have at least a 4Amp power supply.

    I thought so too, as I started with a little RatShack unit. the unit flickered and acted like it was low on power and would not open. so I bought a unit capable of up to 10a. once I hooked this one up it would open and then hang at the "enter id" screen. no amount of fiddling would get it to close. I also inserted a CD and it refused to eject that But now I have a very nice bench power supply!!

    Engine33r, is your response about the x7000?

    would the transflective be a better screen?
    how would one handle front/rear fading on the transflective does it have outputs that will split the output from the PC into front/rear?
    thanks

    Have you tested a transflective LCD from the Mp3Car Store?

    Does the standalone unit play MP3s?

    As the title sais, can the MDT-X7000 decode MP3's (for example burned on a DVD or CD) while in standalone mode? ie. not connected to a PC. Or does it only play Movie DVD's and music CDs?

    Searched for a few days on this but couldn't come up with a definite answer.

    From the documentation that Xenarc has on the unit it does not have this feature. We are currently out of stock and can't test this.

    does this monster have preamp outs? This is definitely a huge step in the right direction. I wish they made it a double din, though.

    The MDT-X7000 does have preamp outputs for full range and sub.

    MDT-X7000 Comments

    My lilliput 701 gears stripped so it no longer ejected the monitor. The week this happened, MP3Car announced the X7000. I saw that is was similar to the 701 and put in an order. I was impressed that the AMP and monitor were better quality, but just a little. I like the built in drive, but I was expecting that the disk drive would be available in PC mode as a DVD-ROM. In the PC mode, it is a CD-ROM drive only.

    I don't have high expectations of this installation. I have this installed in my daily driver, a '07 Corolla with the PC in the trunk, SD auto and NAV. I have been waiting for FM and Bluetooth phone support from MP3Car and some reviews, so I thought a built-in FM in the head unit would allow me to bide my time.

    The head unit is power hungrey and I have to run better than factory wiring to it. When the break lights go, or the A/C kicks in, any accessory, the radio fades for a second or less.

    Also, one frustration I have is that if I don't turn on the head unit and set it to PC Mode BEFORE the PC boots, I cannot view the PC video. I don't have the unit PC power wired to the trunk yet, so the PC powers on with the car.

    I love all of the inputs and outputs of the unit. I do not like the default safety of the unit. You must disable the video safety of the unit to be able to view PC screen while driving. I would like it to only disable DVD movies.

    Hope this helps.

    Doug
