Exclamation TV Output

Hi All - joined forum today, hello to everyone!

Just purchased a 2008 Honda Civic 1.8 EX and wondered if there was anyway to get a TV output through the sat nav screen - always good to watch a little TV with a bag of chips on a day out!

Look forward to responses!

Adam.

Video input to the sat nav screen has been done.
Have a look in the how-to section, I think there is a thread there.

Are you telling me that you have never been somewhere and just grabbed a bag of chips and eaten them in the car...come on!

Thanks for responses guys, however intention of question was to determine if there was any way of plugging a small aerial in and getting 'proper' TV through the screen as opposed to pre-recorded movies/iPlayer?

Thanks,
Adam.

Is digital broadcasted (as in on the airwaves) TV launched in the UK?
If so you need a digital tuner box which can output to the same solution used for a DVD.

**EDIT - what Bog said.... **

I hope your pics will be as thorough as your reversing camera one fab! They made me feel very convinced about getting a cam, which I did

Hi Bog,

Have you any update? I have a Pioneer DD installed and wanted to get freeview. DD was installed by Impulse, and they are asking for a further 500 to purchase and install. Bit too procey, but may take that route if I have no alternative choice.

Thanks

Bog, can you tell me what the USB cable and SD card slot are for please? I'm interested in one of these to use with your cable but it doesn't say anywhere on the advert. Did you manage the install and how is it all working? This thread is nearly a year old but the freeview boxes are still available on ebay for 50ish.

Never got round to doing a how to, but quite simple to install

I have and a couple of other members have the FV002 (Car Freeview Digital DVB-T TV Receiver Box - FV002 - Xtrons.co.uk) which is very good for the money (Look on ebay)... I would say the antenna is the key. I have a 45db which is OK, but signal is a bit flakey on the outside of London, but fine in London. Works perfect in Europe though on the motorways, even at speed - I guess will be better when the analoge is turned off in the UK). I would suggest getting the highest db antenna you can (128db CAR FREEVIEW DIGITAL DVB-T ANTENNA AERIAL BOOST | eBay)

The USB/SD slot allows you to play AVI/Mpeg movies/music/photos and works well. My box is mounted under the centre console (It does not get hot when in use, just warm) with a USB extension lead running to the arm rest.

See here (sorry no pics of install )

For anyone that's interested this eBay - The UK's Online Marketplace appears to be the same box and it's only 39.
