This device might mod the onboard to play DVDs while driving. There’s also a rumor that you can hold down the music note key and after a password prompt appears you enter 1791, this hasn’t been confirmed, but I’ll try it out.

    I really enjoy the podcast, keep ’em coming! But could you change the naming convention of the files so that they show something useful on an iPod? Right now all you can see is Make_DIYcast_2005…
