Hey Chase,

I went back and re read my original Dynavin Info thread because I didnt remember what did and did not work back when I got my unit.....here is my quote.....


"As far as getting ipod video to work, doesnt look like it does, when in ipod video mode the screen just shows the "BMW roundel"

BUT you can use the A/V inputs to run video off your ipod. I used an ipod>A/V plug hooked up to the aux in. You have to control it from the ipod obviously but it works."


So after seeing this I remembered that I couldnt get the video to work either and thats why I ended up installing the ipod video cable to the aux in. Then later I jailbroke and was happy to find that the ipod plug would then allow video. I think this is an issue with the ipod not allowing output to a non apple device....I installed a bunch of pioneers a couple of years ago that had the same issue, the ipod would lock out the video.....why? who knows, ask steve jobs.....I know I ran into it on my home theater, had to buy an apple cord to make it work.

Ah, even though this isn't optimal, it explains the issue and now I at least know I don't have a defective unit. Thank you so much Jeff

well you have me confused......did you order from me? I did 3 orders today but none of them were to naperville IL (your location show IL under your username).......if you are "DK" (your shipping address is kind of near IL) then it shipped today, check your email, you should have a ups tracking number from sent via paypal.

Mine arrived a few days ago and i am farkin over the moon with it. Install was frustrating at times, Dunno about anybody else but what a mission to get the center vents out, luckily nothing broken in the process. Only small issue i had was when i turned my lights on i got a low hum but an earth strap from the unit to the chassis fixed that and i have no noise issues now what so ever. My car is not a vert so not seeing any glare issues.
Service from Jeff from start to finish is beyond reproach its a pity other people do not act in this way.
I did a small vid since some members on our forum over here wanted to see it so thought i might post it here as well.

On the iPod Video subject, I have the Pioneer AVIC unit in my Porsche and the iPod video works fine, which leads me to believe the issue really is with the Dynavin unit, not the iPod. Jeff, Maybe you can talk to the Dynavin folks and understand this better...in your spare time...That is my only disappointment with the Dynavin.

strangely the ipod video function didnt work for me either until I jailbroke my iphone and itouch, then it worked.

But that doesnt seem to be the experience for everybody (Chase) so I dont know if Dynavin changed something or if Apple changed something.

I just did the Jailbreak thing on one of my Touches (16Gig Gen I) using Spirit and it still does not play video on the Dynavin, but did before and does now play on the Pioneer. I would love to know what is different with your iPhone that lets you play using the standard cable. I have changed the setting for video on the touch and it did not make any difference.

did you get the TVout mirror app? You need to get that to force the ipod to output video. Both my 3GS and my ipod touch work with this configuration, if you confirm that yours will not when set up this way then I would say that dynavin likely did something in the newer to disable it. You can of course still do video using a ipod video cord and the aux in.

Thanks for the TVout mirror note. I did that and I now can get video on the Dynavin, although not seamless like the Pioneer. I still think there is room for improvement from the Dynavin side; so that you can just go to the video screen and have a list of videos to choose from like on the music side and have it play with out having to switch apps on the iPod.

With the current TVout Mirror there is still an issue with the video breaking up and not running smoothly....any ideas why?

The dynavin is just a slave, it displays whatever is being input into its connections so if you are getting some kind of breakup I would think that it has more to do with the ipod or the app....this jailbreak thing is not an exact science...have you done a reboot recently? Also the tv out app can be set to run all the time in the background....you dont have to change apps to get it to work, just plug in and it will automatically output video.

Well you 2 got me confused Jeff
There is no chance in hell you are shipping a unit to him if he just ordered and paid what a couple of days ago right? I would imagine there are tons of people before him on the waiting list

No, he reserved over a month ago, just had one available for him due to a cancellation and he was next on the list, I let him know a couple days ago. The only person who got to cut in line was me (for testing and quality control purposes of course)
