    2000 Mitsubishi Magna TH CarPC, Relayboard

    Hey guys,

    I thought its time to post up here, I have a complete carpc setup ready to go in. I built the OS, loaded the music, tested drivers, boot times, etc... last week and now its ready to go in (Just need to find time).

    I have a couple of things that I need help with though.

    1. I have a lilliput EBY701 USB touchscreen, when I switch the car on, the default position is "Off", I would like to remove the buttons and get a DDIN facia for the screen however at present I need to press the power button before it switches on. Is there any way I can have it automatically switch on?

    2. How exactly can I run the carpc without a head unit? I have 2 amplifiers (4 channel and 2 channel/bridged for the sub), but the RCA output seems to just give the amps full-power so the speakers buzz. Diverting via a head unit will get rid of the buzz, but I want to completely drop it. Can I use a potentiometer or something to lower the output level of the RCAs?

    Oh, and of course some pics during the build stage:







    Cheers,
    Dean

    I'm just responding quickly, but lowering the RCAs seems silly. Why waste the power? Lower the gain on your amplifiers or get a loop isolator of some sort. Buzzing means there's noise in the line or something.

    Not much has progressed here, I need to visit Jaycar for some parts and rewire all my custom electronics in to the relayboard. Yesterday I received my USB radio, will have to hack that apart and install the stock car antenna socket

    For future use, there is a FAQ thread on the EBY-701 here. And here is a link to the auto-on thread.

    Why dont you check with the local stereo shops and Bestbuy to make sure they dont have an adapter first?

    It's definately an awesome screen, I'm finding it much more responsive on Windows 7 using touchkit then it was on XP (also touchkit) as well!

    I had it running on Windows XP before (used to be installed in my housemates 300ZX) and the touchscreen drivers would actually bluescreen the PC! It's been about a year since it was installed on XP last though, so I don't know... Driver support may be better now or something, my main reason for running 7 was actually the hibernation features. I can achive a sub-30 second cold boot straight into Centrafuse using hibernation
