    Running now for 9 months with the setup and no problems!..
    --> Recent Upgrades..
    New Version of XBMC installed.. man the latest version is freaking awesome!.. great additions for us Car/Truck users.. There is now scripting avaiable so you can startup your xbox and have it auto-load a playlist w/o any user intervenetion! Very cool.

    did you mod your xbox at all? Did you make it a linux machine?

    How are you powering everything?

    Peace,

    Peace,

    1-Modded ALL THE WAY!!! .. (x2.2 lite modchip)
    2-Linux --nope.. just using XboxMediaCenter for the dashboard..
    -> Note: also updgraded the HD to an 80gig to hold all of the media
    3-(overkill) 500watt power DC->AC inverter for just the xbox.. everything else is powered from through DC.

    I also upgraded my alternator to a hefty 190amp model i got off of ebay a few years ago. The battery i'm using is the stock one that came with the rig..

    Update!.. The New version of XBMC ROCKS!.. now i have a startup script that automates the following:

    1> Startup, play an intro MP3
    2> Loads a random playlist
    3> Shuffles the playlist
    4> starts a song on the playlist.

    I know this is just childs play for anyone with a PC, but for us with an XBOX setup, it'd somewhat of a pain since we have to learn Python scripting to do it

    More info found here:

    More to come!

    That's a very interesting idea to use an Xbox as a carputer.

    Newest install - my quickest ever
    My 2nd carputer - b4 I broke the touchscreen
    My very first carputer - voted the most ghetto

    Nice job! I was thinking of doing the same thing for my car before I opted for a carputer. I'm curious, how are you controlling the volume since you are not using a headunit?

    Is that some sort of gooseneck you have attached to the screen? How's that working for you? Where did you get it?
