On a side note... jeff, is this technically an "HD monitor"
I think its 480X800 so technically its an ED monitor....but at 7" it doesnt make a damn bit of difference.

until you get the AC relocation parts modified dont worry about the HVAC controls, just shove them in, they will wedge in there good enough to get you by until you get things finished.


haha, just noticed the car on the dynavin box kind of looks like your car....but in a different color......hhhmmmm....and dynavin should get super hot girls to lean on thier cars.....might be good for sales.

Thanks! Good luck on your install. It is actually pretty easy so you should have no problem.

Finallllllly!!!!!




Don't be too critical of the trim and what not as I barely put everything back together. Taking it apart this weekend again to customize the relocation kit so that I can swap over the Z8 push button and V1 concealed display. Will also run wiring up to the unit for the back up camera that is being installed. Long story short, it's not perfect but a start

Yeah i tried it but couldn't get it to work. Then again, I think I was doing tvmirrorout wrong. Just downloaded SBSettings so that I can tell it to turn on. Will go and test it now

Jeff, I reformatted my ipod 160 gig and that seemed to fix the issue with playing music.... somewhat... it still is super glitchy (you will notice it randomly starts playing) Now the ipod video plays music fine, as does the iphone 4.

However, video is still completely useless for both devices. It will allow me to play music through the video mode, but no video signals (not music videos, movies, etc) will work. What gives?

Chase, you have got me stumped.....you need to get your hands on a regular ipod video cord to see if you can get your ipod/phone to output video at all...then maybe we can isolate the issue you are having a little better.....Im not sure that anyone has video running of an ipod, havent seen it, but I definitely have video running off an ipod touch and an iphone through both the ipod connection and a ipod/AV cable......

Jeff, the video issue is both on the ipod and on the iphone4. I will be buying those video cables soon but, thus far, can't get it to work at all with either the ipod or iphone and that is despite efforts with music videos, movies, etc.

I don't know if this has been brought up previously, but have you tried your iPod settings? If you go to video>settings>TV Out (on/off) turn on. That may help. As for the iPhone, it may or may not work, but if you plug it in you should get a message asking if you want to display the video on the TV. If you go to the settings, it might help if you change some TV out preferences. Hopefully this helps. Good luck!

Edit: when the TV out is set to on, the iPod screen will not play the video (it should just show artwork if I recall correctly). The iPhone should display the basic music screen but with the video artwork and a chapter button. And I think if you can get it to play video from the iPhone (iPod app), then you should be able to play video from the YouTube app as well.

Yeah that is what I expected to happen. I was assuming that, by clicking the video feature on the dynavin, that i would be able to see the album artwork from a song and play videos either from the ipod feature of the iphone or from youtube (other video aps). Instead, I just get the blue screen.


And I have tested tvmirrorout (tvtuner) on my television with the apple composite cables and it works just fine. Plays movies, displays the screen, whatever... so it seems like the phone is doing it's job the dynavin just doens't know what to do with the signal



NOW, there is one thing that was weird about the composite video experience last night. When I first plugged the phone in, all i got were these yellow and blue bars on the screen... after unplugging/plugging the phone a few times, it suddenly worked fine and has worked fine since. After such, I am yet to try it on the dynavin so will do so later today and report back.
