frown Video to BA Premium sound - How ?

How do you connect Video (for Games console or TV tuner) to BA Premium sound ?
It must be possible as the SAT NAV for BAs uses the same screen.
There is a plug at the base of the system (under plastic cover aroung cig lighter) which is empty, but no-one can provide me with connection details or plug

i dont believe its been thought of yet. Ive heard that the sat nav setup uses extra hardware to produce TV to the screen.

It may have a s-video, but Im guessing you will need a dealers help to enable it..

I have serious doubts of it simply have an AV or S video connection. Man that would make things so easy if it did.

IRB, i think the empty slot you are referring to might be the one used if you accessorise your car with the auxillary audio plug in for MP3/mini disc players ect which is a 3.5mm stereo jack

Being a standard LCD, there is more of a chance that the unit will have a DVI interface, rather than S-Video.

S-Video would require that the unit has the ability to decode TV signals and put them on the screen - quite a substantial bit of extra electronics.

DVI is an interface that is closer to the native digital interface of an LCD. In fact, most PC LCD's now have a DVI interface. Even a VGA interface is analogue, and as such requires an A/D converter to put on an LCD screen.

It would make sense for Ford to have used an industry standards interface. Building something proprietary would probably be possible, but would it be cost effective?

Time will tell.
