Richard, how did you flash it with the update? I have an ipod cable in my glovebox but no usb cable. Do I need to pull the radio and install my own cable?

Bypass for video on a kenwood ddx-512 car dvd player

On the wiring harness there is a green parking sensor wire (PRK SW) that you have to hook up. All you have to do is ground that anywhere on the chassis of the car then youll be set.

I want to have the dvd player work while driving the car.

Kenwood simply requires grounding the parking brake wire.
Take the "safety" wire and ground it to your Head Unit Ground.

There is now a new firmware upgrade, as of late Feb. 09, at the kenwood website, version 2.4 or something like that. It fixed my issue where I could not even sync my iPod to my 512. When you go to the website, you have to know the serial number to your unit. You then download a zip file to your computer, extract the files and burn the firmware upgrade to a CD R/RW. Next you insert the disk into the 512 and the rest is automatic. This all worked for me, hope it works for everyone else.
