Hi guys

I now have my RNS-E fitted (by Craigyb) excellent jobs, cheers. In the next couple of weeks I will be getting a PS2 in my car, via a Dietz Adapter. I have seen somewhere that Dietz do the 1217(i think it is) that does both NTSC and PAL input, and another model which I forget the name of, that does PAL only. I have a few questions,

1. Does this other model do what the 1217 does, but just for PAL
2. Is it suitable for what I want to do (PS2 to front screen, Video in Motion to come)
3. Is the PAL only model cheaper than the 1217
4. Is it easy to fit and finally where do I get one!!

Cheers

Charles

I know the 1217 does PAL and NTSC, the main point of my post was to find out what the other model is that only does PAL!!!

Cheers

I have found the one I am talking about, its the dietz 1412. Would this work in an a4 with rnse?

i am using a Dietz 1417 on RNS-E in my A4 (B6).. it has both PAL and NTSC..

i thought the 1412 is the PAL only device for the RNS-E..


i thought 1212 and 1217 were the old numbers for the RNS-E, but were replaced by the 1412 and 1417..

i bought my 1417 and 1280 (required for video-in-motion in A3 and B6-A4) from:

Place to Purcahse Dietz items in US

Is there a website, or retailer, etc, who sells in the Dietz adapters in the US? I have done some searches, and really have not come up with much - looking to install a DVD player in the glovebox...

Thanks,
John

Dietz - Switch required?

I read a couple of threads about the Dietz adapter to let you run video while the car is in motion - but have one point to clarify. On one thread about an install of the Dietz adapters, a switch is put in for it. What I was wondering was - is a switch required for the Dietz adapter for the video-in-motion? Do you have to switch on/off the dietz for the in-motion video, or does it get powered up automatically once you set the input to tv on the nav? If you have to flip a switch for the dietz for the in motion video, what does the unit really do? Couldn't I make switch (on/off of the can speed signal) and do the same thing?
Just trying to figure out the switch deal...

Thanks,
John

If you switch off the CAN then the illumination will go off on your nav and it will turn off in about 30 minutes. The Dietz unit passes all the CAN signals all the time EXCEPT the speed signal - which is what the switch controls.

The message "TV not installed" points more to a CAN issue. TV in motion would display a nasty warning while blanking the screen.

That is why ....
because I my Audi don't have can bus input so that I bought a canbus converter to convert the 12V+ signal to canbus signal to make the key ON, Light functions on my unit... and now I add the 1417 Canbus input together with my canbus converter I am not sure will that make any problem?
BTW, do you get TV ON when the key is ON? only when the car is driving than TV come off?
thanks for your help

You can code TV until you start moving or up to 5 km/h. How did you connect the CAN wires for the RNS-E and for the Dietz? The Dietz must talk to the RNS-E before you turn on the RNS-E, otherwise the RNS-E wont find a "TV" like device. So, if your Audi doesn't have CAN, the CAN converter would be the first device connecting to the RNS-E and to the Dietz. To get TV in motion you would put a switch in the speed wire going to the CAN converter, stead of buying the 1280 to filter the CAN signal.
