    Question MultiMonitor Multi Zone CarPC

    I am looking at creating a carpc for my 2006 Chevy Tahoe. I have used, built, repaired, upgraded, computers for the past 20 years or so. The trouble I am having is finding a method for my madness in what I want for a carpc. I would like to start out with a single carpc that would have a touchscreen in each of the front headrests. Each headrest would be independent of the other, i.e. they would be able to watch their own videos, play their own songs, etc. They would both be connected to the same single carpc which would store copied DVD’s and MP3’s. In addition I would like to be able to have an interface that would run on both touchscreens where a video or playlist could be selected and then ‘routed’ to the other monitor. For example, my 17 year old could find the video her 6 year old brother wants to watch and ‘push’ it over to his touchscreen from hers. As a future upgrade I would want to have 2 more touchscreens in the second row headrests and a fifth screen in the front that could actually ‘push’ contect to any of the screens. Any ideas, any suggestions, any recommended hardware/software? Thanks and I have been going blind reading posts from all the users.

    HAHAHAHA, it is madness isn't it, thankfully for you, I'm just as mad and have already started the process. My setup has uses a graphics card with a VGA and DVI-D port. Basically the head unit screen is connected to the VGA port. Then the DVI cable runs to a DVI-D to VGA adapter, then from there it is plugged into a VGA splitter where it branches out to 4 screens (Two 7 inch EBY701, One 15" inch, and a wireless Mimo screen project that I'm working on with the help of MP3Car. I decided to go with Centrafuse because they have multi screen and multisoundcard support. Forgot to mention, my setup uses 3 sound cards, one for speakers, one for phone, and the last for wireless headphones. CF is currently working on a super multi screen where front can pass video to the back and vis versa, also rear screens get their own controls so they don't have to rely on the driver to activate content.....
