    After having my xbox installed in my car for about almost 9 months, i have come to realize, i am extremely board with it.

    Its awesome as a multimedia center, but i want GPS, OB2 connection, and more customizability.

    Most importantly, i want touchscreen instead of using my dvd remote.

    It was fun while it lasted, and Xbox Media Center is one of the best GUI interfaces i have ever seen.

    I think i am going to do a computer and replace my xbox, but i really need to determine my actual needs.

    BTW. 09-03-04 XBMC build now supports USB mouses. I am curious to determine whether it will support a touchscreen monitor.

    no,, and most likely never will

    i was going to use one of my spare boxes, then scrapped the idea as i want other things the box cannot use

    Well for my S8 install the Xbox complements the factory fitted Sat Nav, TV, radio and CD player, All I wanted was multimedia, I have built 4 or 5 carPC's over the years and decided it wasn't the way to go with the S8.

    thanks for the link to tribelmods, got an Xbox to ATX converter in 5 days from them, very fast indeed.

    Xbox now works a treat with the OPUS PSU.

    Great install, what kind of power are you using? How is it delayed? Does it cut off when you crank? Specs please.
