I want your faulty electronics
G60Leigh from the 8L sold me his MiniMedia player he bought off ebay.
Its about the side of a pack of cards, USB and SD input, Remote control, HDMI and A/V outputs. The HDMI out put is of new use to me cause I wanted it for the RNS-d.
The unit needed some modding for it to be usable for my needs. The IR needed moving to the front of the car and I wanted to the IR moved there as well.
about 30 metres of cable and 2 plugs was ordered to run the IR and LED from the boot to the front.
Some testing also highlighted that the 3.5mm A/V jack was wired different. The Jack went first ring Earth, 2nd ring Video, 3rd ring left, 4th ring output but I needed 1st ring left, 2nd ring earth, 3rd ring video and 4th ring right. So that had to be moved and modded.
With the media player and bits looking like this.
Next was thinking about fitting the IR and LED into dash.
The best place i could think to put it was in a switch blank.
Spare switch blank found and drilled. (Can you see the face?)
Cables routed and switch put back
Cables routed to the boot, media player connected up and fitted back together.
WooHoo. it works.
Hopefully that's the media/TV side of the RNS-d done up front.
Couple of other little bits I want to add/do but they will come in time.
For now I will enjoy my media player, sort out a proper on off switch for the boot power and find a smaller power supply for the player. The normal 240V plug running off my inviter is not ideal.
