    HD Radio and DVD playback

    I am debating on putting a mac mini in my 2007 Toyota Tundra. I have two questions that could be a deciding factor on doing a mac mini install. One is being able to have my HD radio. I've seen radio shark. But it doesn't do HD radio. I want something I'd be able to control on the screen and have nothing external to have to control.

    Also I'd like to be able to hook up a external screen secondary to the control screen and have DVD playback for the kids while I enjoy the screen in the front. What do you know about this? thanks!!

    I do not know about HD radio. For the second part of the question - there are very few solutions for dual-head setups with Mac mini. Search the forum, they were discussed here a few times.

    Mitch has a working HD radio steup. It'll probably be Windows only though, at least until someone comes up with OSX drivers.

    Are there any preliminary specs and documentation? Would it be possible to get one for testing soon?

    Interesting questions Luke. I have an '07 Tudra DoubleCab. I will be putting in a Mac Mini in the next couple of weeks. I currently have no need for HD Radio since Reno has 0 stations broadcasting. But as soon as they start I will want to add it.

    Where are you planning to install the Mac? I am thinking about putting it in the top glove box with a non-motorized 7" screen in the dash.
