Excellent! One more worklog from Brazil!
I've subscribed to this thread.
I would recommend you to take a look at DigitalFX 2.0 skin.
Good luck on your project.
It´s just to star my worklog where I´ll show the status of my carpc project. I've already bought almost everything I need.
I´m planning to install into the original 2din standard radio dash hole.

RoadRunner from Guino (skin BMW e36 - logo modified)

GPS (not choosen - maybe Garonav)
The victim... (sorry by poor quality photos)
I´d like to use that skin but, unfortunately, I think it doesn´t support destinator. Isn´t it?

No, I use RR with DigitalFX 2.5 and I run Destinator 6.
Take a look at this thread:
Finally I got some photos but bad quality though
tomorrow I hope to power up the system
Hi.. i'm brazilian too
can you contact me by email ?
the email is in my profile
I'm in process to configure the frontend. - I've choosen from RoadRunner (thanks Guino) with BMW e36 skin (thanks Robby), many thanks to this forum and their creators and members for sharing your knowledges and also thanks for those whose colaborate with their efforts making their stuffs (plugins, .dlls, ect), improvements and keeping the things running.
Ok, coming back to the subject...
Now, I installed RR and E36 skin (which I modified the BMW logo for a KIA Sorento one) cause it has everything I need unless for the ODB2 skin which I'll plan to build myself and use Kia logo as a button access for it.
I got FM radio working through DS .dll Radiator; TV via Winamp plugin; Music via Winamp; and testing successfully an unregistered PhoneControl with it.
Next weekend I'm planning to get dvd and video skin working. I need to speed up my project in order to use the carputer during my vacations in january! so I hope to be alive during the next months!
Hi, good job!
About the TV/FM, I have a PCI card too, but I removed it due to its height. I am installing the CarPC in the trunk (see worklog). So the solution for me would be one of those USB FM Radio Tuners. I will bet one next month.
Keep up the good work.
