    Tell me about the rear-seat entertainment

    I purchased the SRX with luxury package
    and added 10-speaker Bose audio and
    backseat navigation package.

    Honestly, I haven't even opened up the
    accessory box for the backseat entertainment.
    I know it contains wireless headphones
    and remote.

    I haven't had time to play with the system
    or even raise the screens to see what they
    look like. I don't want to waste battery
    power on my vehicle toying with them.

    I am, however, having a couple guinea
    pigs ride up with me tomorrow for New
    Years celebration. It's a long ride and
    I thought I would surprise them with the
    backseat entertainment.

    I kind of want to give them a heads-up
    on what they can do with this system
    though my secret purpose of giving them
    the entertainment is so they can show me
    how it works.

    So a couple questions....

    1. I don't have the premium package
    so there are no jacks to plug the headphones
    into (or maybe there are). I know it also
    lacks the ability to switch inputs and sources
    outside of the remote. Am I correct thus far?

    2. As for the remote, I read that you can
    do everything the premium package let you
    do but through that remote. Am I correct
    thus far?

    3. In the backseat, Can one person watch
    a DVD on the driver's headrest side and another
    person from the passenger's headrest listen to
    music from the radio (AM/FM/SATELLITE/USB)?

    4. Taking that one step further, can the
    backseat radio station or the audio be
    different from what the driver is accessing?
    For example, if the DRIVER is listening to the
    iPod via USB, can person A in the back listen
    to XM radio and person B watch a DVD
    movie --- all independent of and not interrupting
    each other? Can 3 individuals (driver and
    two backseat passengers) all have independent
    access to the audio and video system?


    Anything else anyone wants to share?

    lol, but you can watch a DVD on one side, and an Input on the other. Does this default to one side for dvd, and the other side gets the Input? or does each side have the option if they want to see dvd or input?

    The headphones are wireless and have a switch on them to select either input 1 or input 2. These inputs are determined by what is being played on drive or passenger side. If only one type of media is playing for both screens, then set the selector switch on the headphones to 1.

    No. The premium package allows you to select a different audio source than the front passengers. This isn't an option without the premium package. The remote will allow you to change the video input, control DVDs or other video inputs, and the sound coming out of the headphones is dependant on those video sources and the selector switch position.

    No. A passenger on the drives side can watch the DVD loaded into the head end equipment in the dash and control the source with the remote. The other backseat passenger can watch video from the RCX inputs in the center counsel, the video input from an external device, or can watch something saved on the vehicle HDD. If they want to listen to music, they have to do so with whatever source is selected for the front passengers.

    No. The only exception to this is if a CD/MP3 disc is loaded into the CD/DVD drive in the dash board head unit. If this type of media is loaded, then backseat passengers can listen to that audio on the headphones indepentant of front seat audio selection.


    I was wrong in my comments made in another post.

    Those are very clear answers -- much better than
    what I got out of the manual.

    Thanks for taking the time to clarify these functions.

    Yes, you're correct. Completely forgot about the video inputs. Each side has a video input. You can select which screen shows a DVD by the AV screen up front, or I believe the remote as well. I haven't tried it yet, but when you insert a plug into the video input, that source should take priority over any DVD playing.

    All I know is that this is light years ahead of the old single fold down DVD screen in some vehicles.

    I don't know how you do it Captain. The suspense must be killing you. I'll have to send you a bib. I can see you salivating from here.

    Sorry, I couldn't resist.

    Re: Tell me about the rear-seat entertainment

    lol, it's pretty dang close. I ordered Oct. 20th, and just moved to Status 2000 (GM Accepted the order) a few days ago. It's going to be another 8-12 weeks!

    I just keep going back to the dealer asking to drive one... lol


    It's funny, i have stuff ordered for it, (WTech Mats, HIDs in 6000K for the headlights and fogs, the plate frame, and i'm going to order the mesh grille tomorrow), yet it won't be here for some time. Although i can't order LED replacement lighting until it comes in. I have a lighting list for most of the exterior lights, but they are such funny numbers i don't want to order the LED equivalent and have it not be right!

    Re: Tell me about the rear-seat entertainment

    Nope, i meant weeks. It takes awhile to build a vehicle, then to ship it up here. And the plant is shut down until the first few days of January here from the holiday season. So, all my SRX is right now, is a VIN #.

    And i hear the plant is very busy, as that is another reason my order only got picked up at the end of this month.

    Captain,

    Good to meet you.

    Perhaps you did it elsewhere but what are the specs
    on your new SRX (Colors and packages)?

    (BTW, you are going to love the car if you have not
    heard me rave about it enough already)

    Nice to meet all of you as well!

    Yes, i ordered a Premium AWD 3.0L in Caribbean Blue Metallic, with the Chrome Tech 20"s. (CND Premium includes everything, rear seat enter., nav, the works.)
    Here's a pic of what mine will look like for a few days before i get my mods on it. (mostly front window tint and a mesh grill)
