    Guys I think iv asked this before months ago but cannot find it when I search.

    I have an RNSE at the moment and want to add a tv tuner to it, what do I need and is it a big / expensive job?

    Wouldn't mind an answer of this too, TV option is listed in the manual, didn't realise this was an official Audi option?

    You'll need a digital tuner as you know, analogue is being switched off. Also you'll need extra aerials

    Theres a genuine tuner on eBay currently at £375 or an aftermarket one @ £299

    Genuine (not sure if digital) - GENUINE AUDI A3 A4 A6 RNS-E TV TUNER - 4D0 919 146 DX | eBay
    Aftermarket - DVB-T Freeview HD TV Tuner Multimedia Audi RNS-E A3 A4 A6 | eBay

    Id go for a Multimedia Adapter (Kufatec Multimedia Interface or eBay special, just search for RNS-E Multimedia) as well as a DVB-T freeview box.

    Ive installed a few of these for customers as well as windscreen antennas that stick to the inside of the windscreen behind the rear view mirror.

    Thanks for that

    Wonder if anyone knows if the official Audi part is a digital tuner? Also as far as needing an extra aerial, does the factory fitted shark fin not pick up the signal? Not sure I would want more aerials on the car, how is fitted by Audi as OEM?

    Jb0o, of those you have fitted what is the quality like, can it be watched whilst the vehicle is moving?
    I never saw this as a factory option, surprised to see there was an Audi official part?

    Yep it was a option. You will need VIM (video in motion) for it to work while working.

    Jonny can advise better than me if im incorrect

    The official audi digital/analogue TV tuner for A3/TT is an 8J0 919 148 it uses 4 antennas in a diversity array for best signal

    You would be required to replace your existing radio only antenna boosters with radio/TV boosters to get a good signal.

    Also a wiring loom for the antenna boosters to the TV tuner and another loom from the TV to the RNS-E

    The sharksfin is for GPS/GSM only and FM/AM in older cars.

    Sounds like quite an expensive mod, tuner, new aerials, VIM, re-coding, install costs, anyone got any ballpark figures and quality of the end product!!

    As the tv tuner seems quite cost prohibitive, what would it be to enable RNS-E to play video on the screen from a video iPod?
