Xbox In Car With Screens, What parts ?

I have an xbox which I am going to chip so I can put a bigger harddrive in it and use it as an in car DVD player, MP3 player and Games system.

I would like to setup the Xbox in the boot of the car. I already have a 12v to 240v 150w invertor so I can easily wire that up but what I need to do is run the Xbox via a VGA cable into 2 screens in headrests of the car and have an FM transmitter so I can output the sound on the car stereo.

Has anyone set this up ?

I suppose I will need screens capable of displaying at least 640*480 because I will be using something like this Convertor so what screens are half decent and can run this res ?

I will have to chop the headrests about to install a removable screen case so I can remove the screens when the car is parked up.

So the list so far..

2 * Screens which can display at least 640*480 but higher if possible, must also be removable.

1 * FM transmitter.

Thanks Ivan

Hi Chavyboy,

Depending on the cars existing headrest you could try these:-

Saves you from chopping the headrests you would have to get some headrest covers to hide the screens.

This Digital FM Modulator would probably do you:-

My expeience of having a PS2 in the boot was not good as I had to switch it on everytime. There is a company called big cat tecnollogies who have a dedicated lead and remote eye for the PS2 they may also have one for the XBOX.

There are some usful av accessories on this page that may help you.

Are there currently any 1024*768 res monitors out there that can be fitted in the headrests ?

Thanks Ivan
