    I have an 07 SRX. Bought the lock-pick and the video output cables. Still can't get a video signal to the rear head rests!
    Why do you sell a cable that dosn't work?

    from what i know the srx's with rse couldnt transmit vid from the the front dvd/nav to the rse.
    the only way you can have both front and back screens displaying the same thing is if you play the dvd on the rse and switch the dvd/ nav screen to display whats in the rse dvd source.

    You got that reversed. The RSE can display whats on the front DVD/Nav, but the front DVD/Nav can not display the video from the RSE.

    what!
    so that means that the nav units in 02-05 devilles (which are the same as your SRX) DO HAVE the ability to have video out!
    Thats something US 02-05 deville owners with nav have been trying to do.
    Do you have the specs on your nav/radio power harness?
    Maybe the answer is there on how to tap into vid out.
    We already hacked vid/audio in.
    that would be great.

    Rolex, I am really interested in locating the photos you mentioned on the 3/1/08 posting. By any chance could you tell me where I could view those? Thanks.

    think I found an answer

    It was GM part number 88953222 Description: 2.485 Relay.
    was never followed up on so I'm going to give it a try either ways and post more pics and update if it works
    hopefully what I'm doing can help someone else in future

    I don't have the diagram, but here's the pic of the two wires I tapped to get the video signal to the amp. It's the larger red(+) and white(-) wires. I don't know about the audio signals since I only needed the video signals.
