Apple TV as in-car entertainment
Last week I sold my car (mercedes ML) with CarPC included.
And after 5 years of using a CarPC as a main system I want know something different.
Car that I just bought (Audi Allroad 2.5 TDI) as already a fine radio plus Nav.
To be able to play my MP3's I am gonna use a unit that you can attched to the CD changer cable.
No problem in that area.
But now comes the most important part. Entertainment for the kids in de back.
Idea is to buy a 15 inch roof LCD and attache a Apple TV to it.
I have two reason for using the Apple TV:
-able to use XBMC (kids already are used to control XBMC at Home)
-and able to play ISO's. (that way I dont need to change the movies they already watch)
But before I can start this new adventure I need to figure out some things.
First of all, what is the best way to give power to the Apple TV? (system will be started by pressing the power button.Does not need to power up everytime I use the car)
and second, how can I connect the Apple TV to the screen?
Screen only has a Video IN. And as far as I can see apple TV as : composite, and HDMI.
Can I use something like a Composite to svideo converter?
About sound, for this i will use wireless headphones. LCD i have in mind is able to transmite sound by IR.
