    In terms of technical specifics, I'm not sure what you mean in terms of "DAC solution" vs "sound card solution". The only time the signal goes analog (other than to an external amp) is inside the...

    I'm not sure the efficiency argument works in the 'CarPC' universe. As long as you get the heat out and the amp performs reasonably well, it's fine - we're only talking about 100W total. The...

    If there was a repository somewhere with this information and transmitter power information, radio presents could dynamically change as you move through an area mile by mile. Would be pretty slick.

    Nope. Nearly every station has been simulcasting analog and digital signals for 3-4+ years now- most of the later being in 1080i mpeg2 hi-def with 5.1 AC3 (max bit-rate of 19.4 Mb/s). The analog...

    Why do you assume analog only? Any USB tuner you can buy for the past few years has been capable of ATSC digital reception. It's actually far less hardware.

    A ferrite bead is the cylindrical bulge you see in some cables near the connectors. It's an iron core that absorbs some high frequency noise. Some VGA cables I've seen don't have them (most do). ...

    May just be a miss-translation in the pin outs. Maybe they do mean channel instead of pixel and they provide DE separately as well as in the LVDS sequencing.
