New Setup - Simultaneous Video and Audio?
Been lurking for a while, and I'm now looking to assemble the various parts to get a carputer going. I'm not after a super dooper setup first go.
For the visuals, I'm loking at
- in-dash 7-8" touchscreen
- two cheap headrest mounted LCDs (I've purchased these screens already, and are composite, not VGA...)
I don't intend to have the movies playing at the front, that's mainly to keep the kids amused in the back. I'm mostly interested the audio (mp3/wma playback) side of things, and eventally gps navigation, car diagnostics etc.
Has anyone setup a carputer that allows rear passengers to watch videos whilst having audio playing at the same time? I invisage having the video's audio playing through headphones, whilst the music is played through the usual stereo gear. 99% of the time, it'll be just audio anyway.
From what I've read, I think I'd need to go with the two video card setup, and I assume I may need to go with dual audio cards as well. If anyone has done this and has advice, I'd be most appreciative.
My factory car stereo utilises steering wheel mounted controls, volume +/- and seek (next track), which I'd also like to hook into the carputer if possible.
My other option was to do two seperate systems, one a standard audio setup with a headunit, and a rear video setup with a cheapo dvd player, but there's no fun in that...
