    Hi All!

    I have retro installed an RNS-e into my A4 and now i would like to be able to play videos on the head unit off an ipod or similar with composite connections...

    What multi-media input devices do people use? (I don’t have the TV tuner installed)

    there's £90 AV line-in kits on eBay and then £3 for an iPod video cable, but I'm holding out for an Ampire DVB-200 which does Freeview AND has 2 x AV lines in for a carputer / iPod line-in.... £300 + fitting though....

    Well its done!!!

    I got myself one of these -> http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=330358818257&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT

    Took me about 15 min to get it installed and checked it was working fine, then about a hour after that to route cables as i wanted to.

    I also got myself a video lead for ipod, so now i can watch films off ipod or listen to music.

    The best thing is, that if i select TV input, then drive off it says TV is blocked while moving, but the sound still works i can then select NAV and use sat nav with the music off ipod.


    Total cost was about £125
