as long as your amp turn on wire will be constant on with about 12v until you turn it off, should work as ignition switch. I put mine to a Cig lighter thats ignition controlled.
oh, and if you hook up the vga to an RCA, you will get crappy picture quality.
RCA only puts out 640*480 i think.
Cool, The computer turns on but no picture. I bought a VGA SVGA to RCA S-Video AV TV Adapter Converter Cable N so I can hook my monitor up with RCA jacks. Do you see any problems with that? My touch screen stereo can only take RCA's.
Have you tried connecting this to a normal monitor?
Try doing this as you would a normal PC just to get the PC working first.
ebay link) state:
If it is a proper scan converter box then it should work.7. Make sure this cable woks well, please check your laptops / desktops manual to make sure that your VGA card has TV output function capability through VGA.

Thanks a lot for all the help. I hooked up a monitor from another computer and installed an OS to the carpc. The carpc ran great, but only has 100GB. I will up grade that soon. The reason I installed an OS was to see if the VGA plug worked with some drivers installed. No luck. I searched online a found "VGA To AV Converter S-Video TV Switch Box Laptop PC " for $26 and I think that this will solve the problem. I will let you know when it comes. I will post some pics when I get everything in. This is the last installment. Thank
OK, I still can not figure out what the two thin red and black wires are? I put a switch on the wires. It just powered the computer on and bypassed the remote wire. Any thoughts?
