A new cable for iPod playback will be released shortly. It will be called the CCUIPOD2, a software upgrade to your unit may be required.

You have to setup the parking brake feature to watch dvd or videos from your Ipod on the dash.Some people are using a toggle switch connect one side to the parking brake wire the the other side needs to be grounded.

    sorry that last bit of advice i gave u may be correct, or what you can try is what's now working for meusing your ipod go into video settings and turn on your tv out signal thing. I had previously called clarion and they told me there was not a cable available yet that would alow video play, the rep and clarion manual don't mention somthing as simple as turning on your video out signal.

    ps the ebrake also has to be on for video play, but you probably already knew that:)

How do i get my clarion vz401 too play dvd videos from my USB


The Clarion VZ401 can only play audio (MP3 or WMA) files from a USB device. This is listed in the manual on both page 33 (USB Operations) and page 46 (Specifications). This unit can't play audio file with DRM and some USB drives may not be compatible with the device. It can play some videos from some IPod/IPhone models with the Clarion CCA-750 adapter. This is a USB to RCA composite stereo audio/video jacks cable. This feature isn't compatible with the Lightning connector or some versions of the iOS operating system. To view any other videos, you need to play them back on a device that can directly connect to the composite RCA audio/video ports (AUX In or AV In).

I hope this helps. The list of compatible IPod and IPhone models is available from Crutchfield on the VZ401 Details tab: http://www.crutchfield.com/S-ix4f1cAUkb9/p_020VZ401/Clarion-VZ401.html . This tab also has a link to the manual; the direct link is http://d2stobyut4u5rx.cloudfront.net/ImageBank/v20150407084800/Manuals/020/020VZ401.PDF .

After about fortnight, the thanksgiving will be coming, followed closed by it is black Friday which is generally recognized as the start of the Christmas shopping season. This is the day when stores lure their shoppers to come even during very early hours of the morning so they can grab their much-awaited gadgets ahead of everybody.

Next, I will show you Apple iPod’s icon, Model, Year-month introduced, Navigation control, capacity etc. at a round. Hope that you guys could own the best iPod by contrast.

Before we get to the funny stuff, I want to share an applied conversion tool for iPod users – Daniusoft DVD to iPod converter which I stumble across. I have my eyes on two of its features:
1. Convert / Copy any DVD movies(including commercial DVDs) to iPod with excellent quality;
2. Provides many editing functions such as video cropping, movie trimming, and video effect adjustment (including resolution, bit rate, frame rate, brightness, saturation, and sound channel, etc.)

IPod Classic won't play video with AV Component Cable


I have the exact same problem, having previously tried the component cables. I called tech support who stated that my ipod classic must have some sort of hardware malfunction when otherwise fully functional. I can get sound through the RCA cables, but no video. What gives?

Clarion vrx485vd wont play videos from iphone when connected


You need a composite video cable to the Clarion Video input. The usual ipod adapter is for audio only. If you have an AV ipod adapter and you still don't have video, the signal is not strong enough for the clarion to see it and you need a 12volt pre amp. you can find them online starting around 25. Hope this helps

Ipod video problems


I have the Jensen head unit. I found out a while ago that the 6th Gen Ipod Classic does not send video through the multi-pin connection. Only out of the headphone/A/V out. This is the reason it does not work via the JLink cable into the Jensen VM9312

Jensen vm9412 and ipod classic


The newer generation iPods don't always work with the iPod connection kits in a lot of the car stereos. Some of the problem is due to the fact that the new generation iPods have been changed and the stereos were manufactured before the players were released so they are not compatible.
I bought my girlfriend a Pioneer car stereo with an iPod control cable, and it works fine with her Nano (not the new generation Nano) and it works with my iPod Photo 60 GB but it does not work with my iPhone 2G and I read that it is not compatible with the new Nanos or the Classics. Check with Jensen to see if the model you have is compatible with the Classic and see if there is a solution to the issue. It may not be compatible with the new video portion of the Classic firmware.

Cheers
