Question about Emerson MBOX700 Portable Headrest Monitor with DVD Player Car Video Player

Open Question

No wiring harness for my headrest monitors. Product not listed.

My wife and I recently purchased 2 Invision Revolution headrest monitors off of ebay. The units are supposed to work properly or so it was described as such. The monitors came without the wiring harness.Which I knew wasn't being sold with the monitors. I however did not know that these monitors have to use their own wiring harness in order to work. I would like to know if it is possible to make a simple wiring harness for these monitors with item that can be purchased at an electronics store. I spoke with the people at Invision and the man said that these wiring harnesses were made with a patented design so that not just anyone can install. Oh yeah the wiring harness was priced at $400.00-500.00 US. In my opinion thats alot of extra expense for monitors that I am not even for sure work properly. I guess that if there is a simple way to test these monitors for functionality I could more easily justify the expense. But if a cheaper way is out there I would love to know about it.These monitors came from a Hummer H3 2005 and if this problem is solved and everything works out they will be placed inside 2007 Hummer H3.

Hooking up 2 additional monitors..


you can try to use a y splitter. the problem with that is the receiver will not give you enough "power" to power up the headrest. You will probably lose picture quality. There are amplifiers that can be purchased that will have extra outputs for video, this would be your best bet. It will give you great picture quality.

I got dual (forj) headrests the sound works on the one that has the dvd in it but not the one that does not, the rca jacks are hooked up to it, it has speakers in it, does it even have sound?


The monitor only headrest does not have audio handling circuitry in it. the wire harness for that side is the one with the red and black wire, and the two video inputs, not the harness with the red and black wire and the three RCA jacks. It will function on the wrong harness, but it is not the correct one.

The DVD headrest has two harnesses. One of them is for power and output, the other is for input only from another source. The harness with the red and black wire has the three RCA outputs... the video lead goes to the other headrest, and the audio can be fed to an aux input on a stereo or amplifier. The input harness is designed to be Video 2 input from either a gaming system (a Game Cube is a nice option), or another DVD or video source (hand held video device such as iPod or Smart Phone like a HTC Touch Pro 2).

As for why you have NO sound, press the FMTX button repeatedly till the screen displays no FM transmitting frequency. Then you should be able to turn up the volume on the DVD player headrest only.

InVision Revolution series car DVD need to unlock region codes


region codes are only available from the internet by bright people who have figured out how to "Hack" into the software of the device and they call this a "Region Hack", as of this date there are no unlock codes avail for this unit, most of the codes are for mainstream home units and not the car mounted DVD systems. The manufacturer will not provide software updates, the legal status of region hacking is under litigation to determine whether it is copywrite infringement, what this means that soon it will be illegal..

To get sound out of the stereo, either run the audio output from the headrest to the aux input on your stereo, or cycle the FM transmit options using the FMTX button on the DVD player unit to a station you can tune to on your car's FM radio.

Do the headrests detach?? If they do, you can buy the pair of 7" headrest DVD/Monitors all-in-one from Farenheight (made by Jensen). I have used these several times. Not only do the headrests match,but the product lasts too! The best part is that they are about 1/2 the price of many others.

What is a good lock radio to get these days? I got this thing a couple of days ago to replace an older model with pretty much the same features auto set, dual alarms, that had started to randomly reset the time zones - not good for making it to work... I noticed that it had been updated and the control redesigned, so there were some more bells and whistles. Big mistake - HUGE! The instructions were too small to read, so found the manual on-line, enlarged it to 200%, which I could then see, but it wasn't written in any kind of logical order. Altogether completely and unnecessarily counter-intuitive and complicated. Took me HOURS to set up, and I'm no dummy. I have to go back to the instructions just to change the alarm or even change a radio station. Back it goes. So now I'm trying to find a suitable replacement - auto set and dual alarms are required, and it would be nice to have digital tuning instead of a dial. Don't want or need projection, a weather report, presets, a usb port, or an iPod charging station. There are some units out there that seemed ok, and were well-reviewed, but all the negative comments were about the directions, difficulty of set-up, multiple-function, unmarked buttons that needed to be pushed in particular combinations to get anything to work, and the complexity of changing settings. Sorry for the long rant, but I've been searching all day, and the 5 - 10 top-rated models all have this same issue! Any suggestions or solutions out there that don't cost $300+, or are only to be found used on ebay? Many thanks for your help! Marianne
