Boombox from car stereo

To power and customize the boombox I used the following items: 1) Car stereo 2) Speakers 3) Regulated Switching Power Supply 4) Toggle Switch 5) Volt meter 6) Cable grommet After connecting the wires I assembled the rest of the unit and fastened with screws and caps the door.

We are working to restore service. No TV tuner card...? I realize that it adds expense, but it seems worth it considering that a lot of cable companies charge you monthly to rent their box. With my current company, I could go from $15/month for an HD box, to $2/month for a CableCARD - the $13/month I save means that this thing will eventually pay for itself, or at least for some of the premium streaming subscriptions I buy for it.

Plus, I can use my 360's Media Center Extender features to use it to watch digital channels and recorded TV downstairs, without having to pay for a second cable box - saving me another $15 every month. I know a lot of people build these specifically so that they can cancel their cable subscription, but if you plan on keeping it, you can get WAY more functionality out of this box with such a simple upgrade. EDIT: Another commenter pointed out that XBMC and CableCARD tuners don't play nicely together. Flagged Yup, this is a good point. Build a XBMC Media Center with a $35 Raspberry Pi.
