I am pretty new to this whole car pc thing
I have researched it for about a year so have some pretty good ideals on it
Just never thought the hardware side would be this hard to figure out.
Here is my setup
I have a Valor indash DVD with 7" touchscreen.
a Shark 7" touchscreen
A Dell inspiron 1100 with the LCD removed Using VGA out to the Shark monitor.
1 gig of ram
40 gig internal hard drive
250 external portable hard drive
Ipod Video cable going to switch
So I can switch between all monitors running from the Carpc to the Ipod Touch
2 7" monitors attached to the headrest for the backseat
2 10" Rockfords with 1 farad cap and a alpine 400watt amp
2 4x6 audio pipes
windows xp pro
running centrafuse --- Which I do actually hate the playlist feature on this program
Internet from HTC Diamond turned into a wifi router --- Love this phone
GPS receiver from HTC Diamond
Only issue I have really had is the playlist feature in centrafuse stinks
and the of course the power up and down is tricky
This image just shows the Internet access and the weather
I will be uploading a few more that show live TV on the PC also
Ok here is what I did to get Live Cable TV in my Truck
I installed a TV card into my home pc then hooked it to my cable.
I then installed a program called Orb.
Now from my CarPC all I do is goto the My Orb Cast website
and launch live TV Works pretty good as long as you have a pretty good internet connection
Which I mentioned earlier that I use a HTC Diamond as my wifi in my truck
The wifi is strong enough that I can play Call of Duty modern Warfare 2 on xbox live with it.
So here is the picture of SportsCenter
