    TV Tuner + backup camera

    very new to this.
    be far.

    my plan, which i might not do, but im thinking of it. i have a 2001 sentra, which has a sunglass holder with maplights. i would like to fabricate a 5 inch monitor to that removing the part for the sunglasses but leaving the part for the maplights.

    Im not looing to spend a lot of money, all im looking for is adding a tv tuner and bankup camera to a LCD. will any LCD do? or do i have to buy a greaqt brand?
    what TV tuners r good? i searched and i found a lot of tunersat about 100-200 bucks that seem to work. but what r the best for the best recepion?

    thank you in advance, i hope i make sense.

    i see... so the only advice you are looking for is what brand of 5.6" tv/screen to buy? why on mp3car.com forums then?

    I think reception is going to have more to do with what kind of ant you use, but my personal favorite for TV tuners is winhauppage cards. I have 3 of them, one of which is 5-6 years old and I've never had any problems with them. The older one is used in my main pc for occasional usage and the other two are in my Media Center PC which is hooked up to my tv and we use both of those on a daily basis for watching and recording tv, it probably gets about 2-6 hours of use per day depending on what's on and if the kids have off from school. I had an ATI card for a while but returned it because it would lock my system or just randomly stop recording video.
