Dual Audio... Again - The Chiken or the Egg?
This is my first post and I am going to ask something that has been discussed before but is somewhat unclear still - for me anyway.
There are a lot of questions about dual soundcards dual zones but few answers. I have done searches on Dual zone, dual soundcards, dual audio and more.
My goal is to have a system where all video (DVD, AVI, DivX, TV ++) goes to "the entertainment" screens (sun visor and headrest's) and all music, phone, navigation ODB II and more goes to "the control" screen.
I would like to control all applications incl. video from "the control" screen but have audio/Video going to "entertainment" screen and to dedicated sound output going into screens and IR transmitter.
This way I will be in control and can listen to MP3, phone, Navigation, Radio and all on the car speaker system while the kids and passengers is listening to Video sound through wireless earphones.
So my question is:
Have anybody done this with success in a stable system with dual audio control? If so can they post their setup, hardware and Frontend? This is where the Chicken and the Egg comes in, I would happily buy CF or SD and various hardware but It would be nice to first have feedback from someone with a working system and not only a "this will properly work" from an expert if you know what I mean?
I do not have any frontend preferences as this will be my first CarPC but it needs to be simple enough for my wife to use.
I am thinking Dual processor (mobile), small SSD and 2GB Ram for operating system and then huge 250GB Laptop drive(2½”) in removable tray for Audio/Video storage. Any Ideas?
Any Info is welcome
