    Connecting carPC to a Pioneer AVH headunit

    I dont know what words to search for and I asked this question in LCD but no one answered. Is there a way for me to use my AVH Piooneer headunit as a monitor for my Carpc? It has your normal red/white/yellow outputs (like the back of a tv) to plug into I just need an adaptor or something...can someone please help? I plan on using the Epia M10000 motherboard.

    YEs, you can use it. You need a videocard with TV-out or a VGA-RCA adapter to pull this off. The M10000 motherboard has this capability, so you're set there.
    Since this is basically a TV, the optimum resolution is 640x480, and even then it may not look so good. As a general rule, computer video output on a TV looks like ****, so most recommend a monitor with a VGA input like a Xenarc or Liliput.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?
