adding 2 extra video monitors to factory video sys


denalijoe

Question

Does anyone know how to add a video amp to the factory dvd player so you can add 2 headrest monitors?  This seems to be a good addition to the very small factory 7" screen. I saw in another posting the pictures of the video unit taken down and there were no rca's to make it easy just harnesses.  Do you have to cut and solder the connections? I have a 2005 Yukon XL Denali 350 miles. :)

 

 

 

Yep, you have to wire/solder in some RCA outs from the factory DVD player...but what you're asking about can be done. Have you considered just buying another small DVD player and just running the video out from that instead? Sure, the two headrests won't be displaying the same video as that on the factory screen, but at least those folks can watch something different if they want...

 

 

 

 

Thanks, Iwas tring to keep just 1 dvd player to keep it clean. Someone at the local stero shop said they thought the factory made the connections proprietory with many wires controling the video so you could not add anything else. I was hoping not. I want to add a video amp and then send 1 signal to the flip down monitor and 1 each to the headrests and maybe another to the front passenger vissor to put a monitor there or even tap into the nav screen. I am leaving the sound alone just adding monitors. In "Fyrcaptain"'s 2/25/05 posting he listed a pin code for the wiring and it looked like maybe i could just tap into the "#13 pink video wire" and the "#14 bare video shield wire" to grab the video going out of the dvd to the monitor and add the video amp there. Does anyone else know anything about this before i get cutting???

I did just this, tapped into the DVD out before the RSE screen. I split w/o amp to the nav screen up front through an PAC VCI converter. It worked well. Since then I have gone to TVIX, so my DVD player is mute/dead.... i did not use video amps, but that shouldn't matter...
