We have a 2005 Platnium ESV. The prior owner put in an large screen aftermarket tv. It's falling apart and the rear tv isn't hooked up to it. Question: I want to replace the aftermarket unit with a stock gm unit. Will a standard dvd player from a non-platnium work in my truck with the rear tv? Is there anything special about the platnium dvd player vs a non-platnium truck? Thanks for any help!

From what I understand.. The same factory DVD system they install in the Platinum series, is the same DVD they install in the non-Platinum Escalades. From my understanding though

Found out the hard way :banghead:that a standard tv/dvd player will NOT work in a platinum truck. On the rear of the DVD where the body harness attaches to the dvd player the Platinum model have 2 rows of 8 pins. The standard escalade models have 2 rows of 6 pins. Anyone have a source of locating just a dvd player with 8 pins?

video and sound should still work, I believe the extra two pins deal with the bose speaker system in the platinum.

I'm not sure but I would guess that the 2 extra pins have something to do with the second tv screen in the back.
