Recommended Posts

hey i got a quick question since i dont know shit about car puters... anyway right now i got a ravdvd1 hu and im going to be getting a non touch screen monitor... so what would i need to set something up so that i could store videos/music on a hard drive and run it all through the hu and screen. mind you i dont want navi or internet or any of those goodies i just need plenty of hard drive space (right now at as slim as i can go i have 29g of mp3s, music vids and simpsons shows)... oh also i want to be able to watch tv if nessicary

theres no such thing as too expensive when it comes to upgrades like that, because imo if you are gonna spend to upgrade then do it correctly rather then be a cheap ass ricer

to do a video from the ipod video you have to have the special dock for the video ipod. and run opticial from there. using the special ipod video/audio cable. its white has 3 rcas males on 1 end and on the other end is a male headphone plug that plugs into the ipod dock

as fas svideo i think im not sure the dock has an svideo putput also....remeber im not certain of it
