Yes. Purchase the HDMI Input that I installed from MVI. It will splice into the AUX input. That is what I use for my Fire Stick, Chromecast and game systems. I installed it in place of one of my power ports because it also has a USB port with the HDMI port that you can use to charge if you wire it in as well.
I posted that for anyone who may find this thread before finding Chris's. I noted "Please READ" so hopefully people will use that thread for pertinent questions instead of muddying it up with useless comments or questions that would be answered by READING. On my previous post where I quoted you @AlljackedupZ71, that is why I suggested directly contacting dealers or other businesses like Specmo, Pace Performance, etc INSTEAD of relying on ebay, etc. Also why I mentioned to contact WAMS from their website to see what all you need to make a 2016 cluster fit in your 2014. Also, Specmo offers cheap 1-day shipping as I have purchased from them before and was very happy. I've also used the dealership and ebay for a cluster as well but recommend Specmo. I did call Pace and they were comparable to Specmo but Specmo was new versus refurbished from Pace and Specmo was still slightly cheaper, even after the 1-day shipping.
I would caution relying on only online posts/listings only. If you haven't reached out to dealers, or other businesses like Specmo, Pace Performance, etc that sell clusters, I would do so. As Chris already posted previously that some say "New" but aren't and have some sort of damage. If you really want to upgrade, contact WAMS from their website about upgrading to Apple Car Play/Android Auto to get 2016 to work in your 2014.
Time guide shows for the SUV cluster replacement (not including programming) is 1.2 hours warranty and 1.8 hours for CP (customer pay). Skill level B. The money you have into this, at the least, pay someone to replace it.
BlkSS replied to pgamboa's topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra Mods@Jerod P, you said you are a 2014 2500HD correct? @pgamboa if that is the case, he is still a GMT900 series truck and not a K2 and that may change things.
I don't have any idea on how much the front carpet portion costs but it doesn't take much to replace it. Removing the front seats, console/jumpseat and the door sill kick panels and out it will come as the front and rear portions overlap under them (see pic).
You probably won't find many going from a full console to the bench seat because most of the console trucks have the Bose sound system and the carpet is cut out for the subwoofer that is under the console so if they remove the console, they'll have a large whole in the carpet (see pic) unless they also replace the front portion of their carpet. Also, the higher trim trucks also will have the cooled seat option as well. The Denali's and High Country's are the only trucks that came standard with bucket seats with the bench seat not available. Like mentioned above, the bench seat is standard equipment on the other trims but buckets are required on the LTZ/SLT if you wanted the cooled seats.
Yes there are 2 different 8" infotainment screens. RSE screens are HDCP compliant as Phil told me a while back which allows for video playback. He probably had you look for the decoder/deserializer on the board.
You'll need a new infotainment screen for your dash too as your original won't have video processing capabilities unless you've already replaced it. The last time I checked, MVI still hadn't created a kit to add the rear console inputs. @pgamboa was looking into adding this but I don't know if he's had enough time to finish it as he's crazy busy helping so many members on here with other mods. Be I personally don't know anyone else that was working on (or plans to) the rear console inputs. If you have a few hundred dollars to spare and depending on your comfort/skill level working on cars, I say replace your harnesses with OEM harnesses like I did since you have everything else but that's just my opinion.
If you have that, just buy the corresponding dash harness for RSE and the corresponding options your truck has and the RSE roof harness. Then you'll just need the Blu-ray/DVD drive, both screens, and a programmed HMI. To get my rear inputs, that is what I ended up doing but your dash will need pulled and your headliner dropped. It's not hard, just a little time.
For the factory HDMI, I think that will highly depends on the year of your vehicle. If you're a 2017+, it's doable as it'll just take some time and money. If you're 2016 or older, it's easier to splice into the auxiliary input like I did as I believe there's software issues since earlier vehicles didn't ever come with it. It'd be best to ask WAMS or someone like them to find out for sure on the programming if you're wanting it for a 2016 or older vehicle. I already had all the hardware by the time I found out GM added an HDMI so I never looked real deep into it.
