I've tried. Was hoping someone techy out there might be better at it than me.

Is this for a graphics card ?.

you could in theory but a male 10 pin din (search google image and they come up) cut one end off and solder in an 8 pin female din (from Maplins) as long as you know which of the pins you would need to solder where

I wouldn't. It's for connecting my autochanger in the boot to the vehicle's head unit. Something must make it work.

What make headunit and what make changer?



Changer is a panasonic 8 dvd jobbie - CX-DH801N and the head unit is the Ford blaupunkt sat nav thingy. It doesn't play cds, only accepts sat nav ones. The changer plays sound and vision to the dvd screens in the back, and to the headphone sockets, but not to the stereo or the screen in the front. It's only controllable by the remote. I'm hoping connecting this 'spare' din cable hanging out of the changer will give me something up front, sound would be good, controllability would be good. Not bothered about vision up front.

Imo the easiest (cheap) way (albeit not the best quality) would be a fm modulator connected to an output on the screens and then tuned in to the relevant fm station on the ford unit:thumbsup:

Erm, sounds like it works by magic. What does it do? How does it do it? I fall into the if it sounds too good to be true... category, and this.. well...does.

What I've got is headphone sockets that work. What I want is the sound through the proper speakers. Will this do it?

All you do is plug a 3.5mm lead from the headphone socket to the fm box, set the box to say 107.0 then tune the radio to 107.0 and the sound that would normally come through the headphones is transmitted on the 107.0 frequency through your radio:thumbsup:

Righto, I'll get myself one of those then, and have a play. Would still prefer to get the changer fixed properly though, resale and all that. Plus, the remote needs pointing at a sensor BEHIND my head as I drive - not the best idea...

Still, I like your style of magic. mwah :friends:

What remote? The sound will be controlled from the standard volume knob/steering controls.


I doubt you will find a way to control the dvd changer through a standard ford headunit.

What is the changer connected to at the moment?

The changer is connected to the screens and the headphone sockets. The head unit seems to operate only as a radio/sat nav unit, but there is a spare din input on the back, it just doesn't fit the din lead coming off the changer - hence my original question. The remote is currently the only way to operate the changer and the screens.
