    i think i may have solved the frodoplayer problem... it has nothing todo with FP at all either, my touchscreen drivers just boot up w/ right click rather than left click, and thus... makes nothing happen


    now i must wait until the 16th before installing, thats when the acrylic comes and the amplifer. after i get that, ill setup the case for my computer, then install.

    Good to hear you got the FP working. I think the IR parts are similar, but not exactly the same. If you can get a better picture it may help.

    Alright well mine looks a bit different. Actually very different, but contains the same parts and the IR seems to be the same. Ive attached pictures, let me know if you want it or not.

    The only thing one the photo transistor is "V1" and is soldered to the "RE1" point on the board. However these are both generic information that wont help much. I did a little research online, It seems to me that most are very similar. If you want for $5 bucks shipped ill give you this and you can try soldering a three wire lead to it and trying it. Let me know

    Alright, next update... and a couple problems... i title it "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly" (original dont you think?)

    first, the good stuff.

    I ripped out the radio and stuff top half of my console... here some pictures







    the pieces:







    my radio as of now, looks nice... dont you think? everything came out easily no hassles or anything there besides dropping a screw into the dash and having to get it out by blindly swinging my hand in the dash ^^

    Second, the frame.... this is where it gets bad...



    i did not damage the frame... but, the bezel does not fit in the frame... the left and right sides fit perfectly... but the bezel is too tall to fit perfectly in

    is it suppose to eb like this, and if i sand the down... will it fit like it should?

    and one other thing - how did everyone else with an 04 rex put it in perfectly? i.e. is mine bent or something?? it looks fine... so what did you guys do?



    so yeah, expect alot of work being done now that everything came... i should be done making the case for the PC by tomorrow

    Well looks good thus far. Probably sanding will help the screen, I dont know how others with a subaru do it but I assume it has something to do with the screen's bezel modification

    Lastly: The ugly.... i have been suspended from school for 5 days for "hacking" i.e. playing a video game on the computer... so yeah, expect alot of work being done now that everything came... i should be done making the case for the PC by tomorrow
    LMFAO. Well at least suspended for a good reason and now you have time off to work on the PC

    Oh, BTW did u want the reciever i have?

    And maybe, and i dont know if you want to do this, but sanding/cutting the console of the subaru is in order for the screen to fit. Because the screen bezel is metal it may cause problems.

    But then again, i dont know how much damage you want to do to the subaru
