    Yep, i've got one of those (it's the piece connected to the blue cable in the last pic). What i really need is a DVI male to HDMI male adapter. But I can't seem to find those . The long chain of adapters is the problem because it's long and it doesn't flex.

    wtf?

    Loving the worklog. I have a similar issue with the igepv2 in my small case. The USB and hdmi connectors are quite big.

    I have a different question though. Dude, is that your foot?

    Yeah, that's my foot lol. I tried to wake up ahead of the kids and wife to get some of this done. I wasn't exactly dressed, but that's more details than you probably want .

    Subscribed to this, it looks like a really good project!!

    I like the fact that you have still used some of the common components from a regular carPC, replacing the heavy motherboard side of things with the IGEP board.

    This would also mean that you could use a Beagleboard or similar as well, given they both run the same kind of ARM processor? You could just mix and match depending on where in the world you live (Down in Australia, I could get the Beagleboard easier than the IGEP).

    You could also swap and change the radio module depending on what kind of area you live as well, for instance replacing the Boomzbox with Craig Brass's DAB radio as well?

    All up, looking very impressive, and would be something I want to do down the track too!

    Keep us in the loop on it Trip, its going to be a hell of a ride

    Yep, the beagleboard is another good option. The xM should be available now and actually has more USB ports onboard. That means you may not need to fit an external hub in the case.

    Nice work, I am building a bybyte kit myself. Have not decided on the motherboard yet, and this is quite interesting. As a promoter of the project, I can provide you with aluminum "shelves" to separate and install your hardware should you require them.

    lolo, bug sees the foot and I was admiring the artwork

    @ instant on
    I was wondering if there is a way to cut down on the bios startup time.
    Waiting for an OS is not that bad but it's the first screens that you have to go through that seem to take the most time.

    I too have been thinking of trying out a BeagleBoard Xm + an ARM build of Ubuntu in order to replace my miniITX motherboard and Windows. I'd love to watch someone else attempt something similar first though.

    I think thats one thing that can easily make a tight fitting install a big mess, the cabling and adapters. With my rebuild, I am taking the cables into effect and all the space I have to make for them is pretty big. As far as components vs wiring, right now its 50/50!
