WK2 Overland Lockpick and Media Server Install

Lockpick install... not much to say here, already documented:




So in searching for a small blu-ray/DVD player for the Jeep to go with the Lockpick I struggled with where to mount the thing. The front seats have the bins under them so you can't really use the space there and then there's the whole thing about accessing the player for movie changes and IR remote things. I couldn't settle on one that would be functional.

Enter the media streaming unit option - I researched "a bunch" of options here I found that the 2013 Roku2 XS has everything I'd need to work i.e. composite and HDMI output(need composite for the Lockpick), 5V DC power(I'm using the Jeep 120v household plug with the Roku 5V converter for now), USB input and a bluetooth multifunction remote so no line of sight/IR requirements are needed. Net - it easily fits in the console, has pretty good video quality with the composite input, has both wifi and hardline ethernet and syncs with the home network when in range. The remote also has motion control for games too =)



I'm using the 120v AC console plug right now but I'll likely convert the console 12v to Ign/switch so I can use that (and the Roku wouldn't stay on all the time that way).





Another bonus is it pairs with the Jeep wifi and streams "ok" under most conditions, not as fast though as the cell or home wifi in my limited testing. Also the Media/USB app remembers where the movie was when the power is killed so I can resume Dumb and Dumber where I left off lol. Surprisingly good for $65 and ~30min of setup. Only complaint is that it takes about 1min to boot up... other than that it's an awesome little device.

Re: WK2 Overland Lockpick and Media Server Install

Do you happen to have a link to the specific lockpick you purchased? Also is there a link to install instructions? I searched but didn't come up with anything. Maybe something with the mobile app.
