    headrest screens

    Anyone able to personally recommend somewhere to fit a couple of screens in the headrests of my RS6. I'd need to see their leather work, of course, but I can't find anywhere at the moment.

    Cheers.

    Re: headrest screens

    I'm in the same situation with my s4.

    Is it worth someone travelling to our neck of the woods for two jobs?

    I saw a X5 with these in the otherday and was dead envious.

    How are you feeding these screen Installer69?

    I'll speak to a local ICE shop to see if they have done this - they have a pic in the window showing a screen, so fingers crossed

    Re: headrest screens

    Spoken to the local shop who assure me that all their work is with leather and it is 500 plus vat per screen supplied and fitted.

    They mill out the bars where possible to make this "invisible"

    How does this sound?

    The screen are amiba? or sentor? and are 5.8 inches with black surrounds - i wanted grey screen ideally.

    DVD player is 170 plus 35 per hour fitting all plus vat again.

    So looking at the dark side of 1500 in vat [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/jawdrop.gif[/img]

    Re: headrest screens

    I trawled the web to find details of the aux in lead to take advantage of the aux1/aux2 inputs which are, as you say, on the rear of the nav box in the boot.

    You can buy them ready made but as the plastic plug is already there, all you need is the pins which can be ordered from audi or a pc shop. Same as the signal ones to a cd drive.

    I'll see if I can find the sites again but I didn't book-mark them.

    The nav unit does not, as far as I have been able to find, have an aux out, so you cannot send tv anywhere. You would have to get another tv tuner. Anyway, the tv reception round her is average at best even in your house!

    Re: headrest screens

    yes, 2 plus an av in (3 rca) and a coaxial digital out! It comes with a credit card remote and a remote pick up.

    No way of running headphones though.

    Re: headrest screens

    If your buying tvs then look around!!

    NECVOX, TVs are the best 4-13" LCD monitors(TV's) ive used for installs, centurion are expensive for what they are as there viewing angle is limited, the necvox units have a wide viewing angle, smaller over all size ie from edge of screen to edge of unit, and they are slim and can be flush mounted easily, with adpater that comes with them.

    They start at 130 - 1000 about 135 for a decent 5.6" unit, and 450 for drop down, ive got loads in my car if any one wants to view them!

    If you use interface 1206:



    It allows, and I quote "Two screens (PAL) for the back seat passengers can be connected to the original AUDI/VW TV tuner with the 54 pole connector."

    I am waiting for a reply from my email but I think this means that you could feed the dvd in to the nav+ then display it on the front and rear screens and could also feed the tv pic to the rears as well! Then use the second av out on the dvd to feed a second av in on the rear screens (obviously you'd have to get screens with 2 inputs - some have) and the rear screens can display dvd while you listen to muzac. But we still have the headphone problem then. We need an rca to infrared headphone adaptor.

    As to self install - I did in my old A4 and it never looked right.

    Re: headrest screens

    They've had the car for 3 of its 4 weeks!! I see that audi quality hasn't improved since I got my crap S4.

    Will they give you a 75% contribution towards the vehicles depreciation for the first month?

    They'll probably tell you that the non-standard additions have impaired the vehicles performance and invalidated the waranty.

    Re: headrest screens

    you could try www.unbeatableaudio.co.uk at redhill in surrey, ice installers who will do it for cheaper and have done some top jobs, check out their gallery on www.torquesystems.co.uk

    centurion single din dvd/mp3/cd players are only 85 new off ebay and you can stick it under the seat or whatever, again that is very easy to fit.

    i have headrest screens in leather on my mondeo, trimming wasnt necessary they were just cut (and the edges tucked into the hole) and the necvox screen trim covers it all

    Hi, I had a PC in the boot running windows XP, all my MP3's/Sat-nav/Video's etc all sat on a 100Gb hdd, the signal was then pushed through a Nvidia Geforce card using TV out to the rear screens, split 2 ways, and the front screen was a Touch Screen which connected to your normal VGA out. also the front and rear screens were connected to a DVD/Video player in the boot which you could run on a seperate AUX line, all the sound came out of the Audi standard Speakers I just tapped into the loom.

    www.fsplanes.net is my personal site, it shows you some stuff on there, in pictures.

    www.mp3car.com has all the info you need for carputers
