    Wow , Looks stock looking , is the sun a problem? Like do you read the screen correctly in sun light?

    Do you have pics of the computer installed in the car?

    OK, I spent most of the day putting everything back together and doing more testing. I was baffled all day by the computer not hibernating properly. What it was doing was going: "preparing to hibernate (blue screen)", then hibernating with status bar (black screen with XP logo) and hanging there after the status bar filled up. The fans kept running and everythign had power, but it would come out of hibernation nicely afterward.

    I fooled with the BIOS for a while and some of the XP settings. Eventualy I decided to re-install every driver I had for the board, video/audio/usb/lan/FIR etc. This seems to have been the problem, and it hibernates fully now and comes out clean and somewhat quickly. I am going to test out standby tomorrow and possibly change the jumpers in the M1 to reflect that change if it goes good.

    My PCMCIA 802.11g card arrived and it works great. I havent taken any pics of the final install yet, but will do it tomorrow. I am still debating on how I am going to secure it to the floor permanantly. It does fit in nicely under the front seat though.

    I went through and changed the BIOS to go into S3 mode (standby) and shut down power to everything in the computer except the memory when the computer powers off. I also told XP to do the same and set the jumpers on the M1 to power the PC down after 5 seconds and to NEVER cut power to the unit so that the memory will remain intact for standby mode. I have been told this will only dray about 40mA more than hibernate, so well worth it IMHO. Now the computer is booted up and ready to go playing MP3 or whatever I was doing before shutdown in about 4 seconds everytime. Thats faster than some aftermarket headunits I've seen.

    I also installed a new skin and tested it out in the sun today. Very visible now, in everything but direct sunight. The way it stands, I won't have to change anything with the screen now. I am more than happy with it.

    How much time does it take to boot from cold(not in standby)?
    4 seconds is awesome for standby!

    Yeah, on second thought, it's probably closer to 10 but not over I wouldnt say. I'll time it sooner or later. I haven't timed it from cold boot, but it's a while. Plus you have to go through the Touchkit calibration screen for the lilliput EVERY time you cold boot. F that.

    Question on your Titan install

    I was wondering if you did anything with the IR so that you could use the remote for the Lilliput. I am working on the same install and have the Lilliput 629GL monitor. When I setup everything with the monitor in the nav bezel, the IR receiver is out of sight and will not work. I was thinking about mounting a xantech 490 ir repeaters in one of the spare switch blanks by the cigarette lighter.

    I unsoldered my IR receiver inside my lilliput lcd and extended the wiring and hot-glued it to the lower left of the housing below the 4x4 switch...there is a little "vent" looking place. Now I can use the remote from the driver seat just fine.
