OK as you know, in car dvd players with the lcd screens can be way over AU$1000 dollars and i was thinking, i could make an exact setup (even better) using a stand alone DVD player.
DVD players these days are cheap as dirt (ive seen a few for around AU$100 and they play anything and everything even MP3's )
With some models, the DVD ROM inside has an IDE Interface and a freind of mine has replaced one with a standard DVD ROM from a PC.
Also, inside a DVD player, it has hardly anyparts. (dvd rom and 2 or 3 small circuit boards and they are tiny)
Some DVD players also have dolby 5.1
I could get one of these things in a car and use a standard pc's DVD rom and a few cheap LCD's (like the PSone screen)
What you think ??
cool idea or not
