Except from running the Headrest Monitor cables inside the seats, installation is straightforward and easy. The critical component in the integration is the AUX In Cable. I'll fabricate a new one once I have the required 4-pole Mini Jack.

Via RCA Cable yung mga connections. If you're referring kung paano yung connection between the TV Tuner and Head Unit, dun pumapasok yung RCA to Mini Jack cable (last photo).

sir puwede mo ba lagay list ng mga items na ginamit mo? and paano nakabit sa HU yung tv tuner mo.

Sir @mitsumi,

Basically all you need for the setup are included with the Headrest Monitor and TV Tuner package except for the RCA to Mini Jack Cable which needs a bit of fabrication if a pre-fabricated cable is unavailable.

IHMO, the most suited TV Tuner for our cars is Kinetic brand (no affiliation whatsoever) because of the following:

1) Kinetic has a built-in media player unlike other TV Tuners on the market. This feature provides the ability to play downloaded videos.

2) Kinetic has separate power adapters for AC and DC power supply. The DC power adapter is really suited for can installations. No more need of DC/AC Inverter. DC power adapter of other brands is bought separately.

3) Kinetic has a remote control receiver extension which facilitates the concealment of the main unit for a more cleaner installation. This also enables passengers at the rear to choose whatever they want to watch.

My next project would be a larger storage device to store the tons of converted videos I've downloaded. BTW, covert your video to 800*480 resolution to maximize the resolution of the Head Unit and Headrest Monitors.

Initially I was going to use two (2) RCA Y-splitters but later changed my mind kasi maraming points of failure and there's a possibility na ma-degrade yung video quality.

What I did is spliced together all the video outputs (headrest & HU) into a single RCA terminal. Ito na po yung kinabit ko sa TV Tuner ko. Kung mapapansin nyo sa 3rd photo, isa lang po yung RCA na naka-connect dun sa TV Tuner for video.
