the quality of the monitor is great IF I HAD TO RATE IT 1-10
I WOULD GIVE IT 9.5 WITH AN ORIG.DVD NOT A BOOTLEG COPY.
I HAVE VCD BURNER I CAN BURN RIGHT OFF SAT TV IN MY HOME
WITH A $ 10 CENT MUSIC CD I CAN RECORD VIDEO AND SOUND
SLIP IT IN MY MURANO AND BAM I'M WATCHING MUSIC VIDS




06 MURANO S AWD SIL.{ COLOR SCREEN / DVD = PRICELESS}

That would be good for comedy shows on roadtrips too since you don't have to really watch the show. Did you happen to take any pictures of your install? I have a portable dvd player that I could easily hide that would be very useful.

i'd sent you an e-mail as well. please do show how you've concur the 06 mo screen. i've been wanting to play x-box in my mo ever since i bought it. i know there's been posts about converting old color screens for a mod'ed x-box, but i've never succeeded on geting my hands on any of the docs. in fact i bought a mod'ed x-box just for this, waiting for the day that i can install it into my mo.
:p
I'd just noticed that you've attached a picture of your converter. can you tell me where did you buy this? or how to build one? also how did you pull off the bezel? thanks!

OK, so what are the grey and red wires for? Does this simply plug into the monitor harness that exists? Is the 06 screen the same as 03-05? What did this cost you? Where did you get it? What's it called? Sorry for all the questions!

Interesting stuff.

Seems like it would work and one member says it will. I sure wish he would post pictures of it working in the MO. I had the generator labs units so Icon it can be done. It was set up for a xbox which would play DVD's and had a large hard drive to store them on. You could also load Linux for xbox and use it as a computer.

This seems like much the same interface box but with RCA input jacks for the system. There is a scan rate problem that has to be addressed if you want to use the Mo screen That is why Generator used the xbox as the inout unit. it has the same scan rate at the Mo screen. As he described it not all, in fact few, standard DVD systems had they type of scan output. This caused a crawling bar that moved from top to bottom. So Investigate fully. It most likely will work, but I sure would like to see and know more about the actual MO system.

I think we're wasting time posting to 696dude. he's never reply to any of the messages. i have a feeling that he's just in here to solicit.

I did the entire install on Saturday. Everything was plug and play from the screen to the converter to DVD to the FM modulator.

The picture quality is up there, no lines, or shutter. Plays very clear. Right now I am watching music videos that I grabbed using rmrecorder.com. There is a switch to go from DVD player back to normal - pretty cool when setting the heat/ac, or going with a regular cd, etc.

I would highly recommend! I do not have pictures right now as the weather was cold/rainy over the entire weekend, but its pretty straight forward just imagine any tv that size, and how it would play during normal operation.

The DVD player I have has a TV tuner but it doesnt pick up any channels clearly as I do not have it hooked up to an antenna. The power is coming directly from the car adapter...although I may do it over to hook it up directly to a power wire/ground as the DVD always resets. It doesnt hold the spot. And I had to switch FM modulators as the one that plugs into the car adapter directly was picking up engine noises...went with a battery operated version - much better.

hey pace,
i have a couple of questions for you, as i'm very interested in getting the converter as well.
you mentioned that you did the entire install yourself. was there sufficient step by step directions? or did you have to figure a lot of stuff yourself?
do you know if this will work on 2006 monitors, without screwing up the backup monitor?
and lastly, about how much out of pocket did all this cost? i wanted to consider budget wise too before venturing the converter.
thanks!
