RE: Jeepintosh - 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee with Mac Mini

i thought frontrow was only available on the imac g5 1.9/2.1?

if i can control it with the iTV remote i have currently, i may give it a shot.

ive been thinking about this install in the 240 for a very long time--as long as ive had it, actually. but it would take fabrication work to make a dash pod to mount the screen into. im not taking that whole tack the shit on and dont worry about it approach with my install.

i want a wooden/chromw screen bezel, wooden/chrome iMate controller, all that fun stuff thatll actually match the shlomo, i dont want a camera sticking out of my trunk or any of that.

i like it a great deal. i have most of the bits, but i think itll go in the vw, that one has a nice flat dash, no radio system to worry about, no pre-wired anything.

a sub box behind the seat, amp mounted to it, plenty of room left for an old sawtooth/digital audio tower. dunno if the electrical system would handle it, but who cares, its modular[:D]

bleh... new cars with bundles of wires running to everything. who needs em?[:)]
