Maybe a BIOS setting to enable the composite?

Wait, did I blithely post that without actually bothering to read and fully understand the situation, on the assumption that I knew something about something that I knew nothing about? Nah, couldn't be. Go back and check my last post.

Ok. Wait a sec.

You didn't post a specific model # for the motherboard, but based on comparing the picture you posted to the pictures on VIA's website, it appears to be a Mini-ITX form-factor "classic" EPIA.

According to VIA's website specs for that motherboard:
Back Panel I/O
• 1 PS2 mouse port
• 1 PS2 keyboard port
• 1 VGA Port
• 1 Parallel
• 1 RJ-45 LAN port
• 2 USB 1.1 ports
• 1 Serial port
1 S/PDIF RCA port
• 3 Audio jacks: line-out, line-in and mic-in
This is consistent with the fact that the VIA VT1612A audio chipset supports S/PDIF output.


While many of the *other* boards in the EPIA family support TV out (both RCA & S-video) the "classic" version is specifically denoted as: TV Out: N/A in the VIA catalog: http://www.via.com.tw/en/downloads/b...Mainboards.pdf


I'll bet you $1 (by PayPal) that if you install the proper audio drivers and enable that port you'll get S/PDIF audio out of it.

You may have a point. That would seem correct as I found one, only one, sentence in the User's Manual that reads "This dual function port may be used either as a RCA Video port or as a S/PDIF port.
So, I am sorry that I said it wasn't, I didn't want an S/PDIF output, the manual said it was video, so I didn't care to even look into it any further. However, even after going through the BIOS a million more times today, I still cannot get it to show video out of that port.
My conclusion now is that it is indeed an S/PDIF output, and since I wasn't sent the original manual to the motherboard, I could only assume that the model # specific manual that I downloaded from VIA's website was correct.
Further, after using the VGA -> RCA adapter, I could not get a good signal to my DVD headunit, so probably the only good way to use this system is to get a small screen that operates via VGA.

I'm shooting you an email as well, but for reference's sake, I will ship to you as long as you cover shipping costs.

Also it is larger than a din hole, but there is a perfect place behind the passenger seat to mount it, like Mazda had this PC in mind when they made the crevice.
