Default Need Advice on connecting a CarPC to HU

Hi All,
I am planning to install a CarPC (Zotac Mag ND01 & VM70) to my Swift ZXi. The Swift has a stock Kenwood KDC-MP3029 HU and Speakers.

I would install the Touchscreen in the double din slot and can move the HU slightly inside. But how would I connect the Audio Out from the PC to the HU?

This particular model of HU has only Radio Tuner and CD-MP3 player.

I would also not want to use a FM transmitter and directly connect using wires.

I have S/PDIF and stereo outputs from the PC and would want to use the clarity of the Digital Audio.

Is there any way I could connect without changing / replacing the HU?

Bumping an ancient thread for a similar query.
Is this HU (Kenwood KDC-MP3029) has the AUX function? Or is there any possibility to connect AUX?

I'm looking at getting a Behringer UCA222. it has a Line In as well as USB input.

Connect HU Out to UCA222 Line In, USB to CarPC/Phone. Line Out goes to amplifier

I only have front channel speakers so this works for me. Not sure how to handle for rear spakers, maybe you can split the single output from the UCA222 into two amps.

Yes, but! According to the manual, Aux-in is an optional accessory. It connects via the CD Changer port at the back (round connector). The menu system has Aux-in selection procedure (check manual).
