Uconnect 8.4AN Media Playback options with Lockpick or similar device

I know that the new Uconnect 8.4AN doesn't play back digital media and the CD player does not play DVD's.

I am looking for ways to use the CD input on back of the radio with a lockpick or similar device to be able to play video from a source on the main screen.

I have searched the threads and I haven't found anything on people figuring this out. I am looking for possible ideas and suggestions from anyone on how to do this.

End result I would love to hack the software to be able to play digital media files, if not I would be content getting the old "DISC" menu that was on the 11-13 nav systems that let you play videos from DVD's, granted I would have to install a small DVD or Bluray player which wouldn't be too hard.

I found the below resources, but doesn't seem like anything is out yet.

NAVTOOL
LOCKPICK C8 v2
http://www.navtv.com/ But this doesn't seem to have an option yet?

Re: Uconnect 8.4AN Media Playback options with Lockpick or similar device

I have been looking around for ideas and found this one option.

Tap into the Rearview Camera's video line with a A/B switch. Now to figure out the sound, and to hook a bypass switch so it will show in any gear, not just reverse is the question.

So a lockpick will allow the bypass for the nav and video, but i am wondering how to get the rear view camera input to show in any gear.

Does anyone have a blueprint for the inputs on the back of the 8.4? I am looking to see if I can create a video input harness. I know it might only be RCA, but if I could get HDMI to work I would love it.

Anyone else have any other ideas?

Re: Uconnect 8.4AN Media Playback options with Lockpick or similar device

I had a nav TV installed in my grand cherokee overland, that didn't come with a CD player. The nav TV uses the aux jack for the installed DVD player, also it bypasses the lockout while driving feature. Only problem is its a little glitchy at times, but I was told this before the install and that the glitch fix update would be out within 45 days. Video is available from any source as long as it can be plugged into the aux jack. I hope this helped you.
