    Cool glad u got the car seems to have worked out well for you

    The cable i got for my headunti doesn't seem to work..... i installed it and it just doesn't seem to know that it's there it's plug in right and everything

    I made a cut right along my hand installing it cause my headunit is under the passenger seat i have to stick my hand under there and i pulled my hand out and it's dripping with blood lol

    I didn't even feel it oh well im still ****ed at this damn cable i don't wanna wait another 3+ months for another one....

    Nin^ ^NIN, are you sure you don't have to change a setting on the headunit to recognise the cable? I know when I added an AUX input cable to my old pioneer headdeck, I had to do something like hold some buttons down on power-on and enable the 'aux' feature. Just adding the cable in didn't change anything. After I enabled the 'aux' feature on the headunit, the cable worked fine.

    Good luck.

    Yeah i worked that out myself on saturday the bloody manuals didn't mention anything about it either

    I was holding down the CD-CDCH button which didn't do anything and i was bout to quit then i tried holding down the select.

    It be bloody handy if they mention this in the manual it says nothing bout setting it to AUX-IN

    My only problem is getting time to run the wires through the car nd get the softwre working well enough.

    Still looks like my carpc won't be showed off in this meet either.

    After about 3 months of my car PC running pretty good, today my motherboard crapped itself. All I get now is 'Disk Controller Failure' even after I change HDD's with a spare one. No need to panic. Spoke to my friends here at work and within about 15 minutes, I now have an exact replica motherbaord for me to install tonight. I'd hate to have to come to the meet with my carPC not running.... The lesson here is to make sure the network guys at work have an interest in your car so when you need something, they are keen to help....
