i do agree that the load up times and power is gonna be a worry.....think im gonna look into the hibernate feature more...wont be too hard to wire the hibernate upto the remote link for the central locking.....but i will need to find the remote feed....any renault specialists out there which can elaberate a bit on the central locking system for me.
also i am trying to design a voltage regulator/battery monitor which will shut down the system when battery is low(this would be user adjustable). that way you know you will be able to start your car in the morning...also the good thing is that you wont always be using the rear pc`s so i should be able to incorperate in the front pc a shut down switch for the rear pc`s.
but really the main pc to be loaded up quickly is gonna be the front media player so that can go on hibernate and the others can go on standby or even shut down?? which once the car is unlocked the rear pc will boot up into standby??
okay im gonna have to have a good look at this, keep up the ideas guys and as looking at the price i could get a full multi media setup front and rear for the price of a normal alpine sat nav system...
