    Thank you! This is extremely helpful. I purchased the P2140 over a year ago, and I'm continually impressed by the amount of features packed into this device. This video guide is very useful and I can't wait to see more.

    I can't think of any thing that would need to be demonstrated on video. I have some technical questions that can be answered on forums. Just watching the video gives me a lot more confidence in what I'm doing.

    Perhaps:

    - How to add a master switch (i.e. if on allows PC to Boot when ignition active, if off then will not allow boot).
    - How to connect an external PC/Mac on/off switch
    - How to use the acpi / isense wires from the P2140 to the PC/MAC

    Or better yet a three-way switch (ON-OFF-AUTO) for always on;always off; and switched w/ignition.

    So, I will add some ACPI videos to the list and also using a three-way switch.
