    Ok, finally sometime this evening to get working. I installed the +5V to the P1900 and set the jumpers. Hopefully I set the jumpers correctly. Im using a MACPAC cable so powering the MacMini was a snap. I'll use the secondary power for the Xenarc monitor. I'll use the new third power supply for the USB or AMP, not sure yet.

    Large book in the back is the Porsche 944 Electrical manual which shows 3 options for Radio installiation and Im not sure which one I have. One shows a seperate AMP installed somewhere in the car already which would be ideal. Id like to tap into what already exists since I have not purchased the amp yet. (Not likely my car though.) Checking with the Porsche 944 guys on this.

    Below are before and after shots of the monitor placement options. I would really like a clean monitor install and the Xenarc almost fits perfectly. The bottom 1/4 of the monitor is to large to fit exactly which means I would need to cut the double din at the base of the install. Or I may place the monitor behind the plastic double din trim. Placing the monitor behind would recess the monitor about 3/4 to 1 inch and Im not sure how that would look.

    Another option is to have it sit as in the picture with an arm that would swing and allow me to access the DVD slot on the mini with out jumping through hoops.

    What do you experts think??

    I would love to see a clean install with the monitor behind the plastic trim.
    Looks OEM, but customized. Only that the space behind the monitor will be wasted.

    Could do with the arm, but remove the Xenarc casing and just mount the LCD with probably a bit of a plastic trimming.
    Just my opinion.

    So where are you gonna put the Mac Mini?

    I think there will be enough space behind the Xenarc and since Im not using the HU, it should fit fine!!
