That's Video in #2.

 

One input overrides the other. Probably for when the reverse lights activate the backup camera.

That's kind of what I thought.  Anyone need to use two TI's on one monitor?

Has anyone tried to use a car monitor as screen for the TI?

Rasmus, 

  Mine arrived today, it works better than expected!  It actually looks better live than in the video below.  Right now I don't have audio, but Arcadeshopper (Greg) said he'd make me up a proper cable with a female stereo jack so I can use any speakers out there.

I always thought it'd be a fun project to create an MBX-compatible clone that connects to the same ports as the MBX, uses a Raspberry Pi, and a touchscreen to replicate the button array on the MBX. It'd of course have to by 100% MBX compatible which would be a challenge. If such a thing existed, some amazing new games could be made.

Someone said the video was not clear enough and wanted a photograph.  Since I took one, I'll post it here too.

Click on the image to see it full size, and you'll see how clear the display actually is.

My most major programming experience was a command line yahtzee game for the linux terminal... I'm pretty sure a mbx hardware emulator way out of the picture for me.

... But it would be pretty sweet to see that actually happen.
