Question about Dual XDVD8181 Car Video Player
I just bought the XDVD710 Car Video Player and it can't see vedio while driving it has a parking brake lock and i heard that there is a code to break it will show video while driving can someone help
All you have to do for you to be able to play video while driving is... take the yellow wire with blue strip and wrap it with your ground wire and connect the ground wire to a GOOD chasie ground

All you should have to do it ground it.. instead of when the parking break goes up it grounds a connection so ur light goes on.. just ground it with ur main black ground.. works perfect..

One of the wires in the back is yellow and black that is the parking brake wire, if you connect that to the ground (black) wire it will work while driving

There is a yellow wire in the back of the Cd player that is supost to go the parking brake there is also a other wire that is suppost to go to the parking brake also so that when the brake is ingaged it creatas a circit. wat i did was just put a toggle switch in between the two wires. it also says something in the manual about u put the switch on for 3 seconds then turn it off then back on in order for it to work. read the book tho to makr sure

These methods have worked on a variety of Dual DVD systems (mainly XDVD8181, also XDVD710), unsuprisingly, since Dual stated to me that most installations have the same codes.
WARNING! It is usually ILLEGAL and most of all UNSAFE to drive while watching video. I only watch video while parked, and I suggest you do the same. This is for demonstration purposes only, if you use these codes, you do so at your own risk.
STEP ONE. Ground the E-Brake wire.
No matter which method you use, you must ground the brake detection wire. I suggest you tap it into the ground wire on your wiring harness (ensures a good ground).
1. FACTORY RESET METHOD (Temporary)
(This isn't the most effective, but it is the easiest to try, so it's worth a shot since it apparently works on some units.)

There isn't a code but there is a way when you wire it. DVD head units have one extra wire in their wiring harnesses, compared
to a standard CD head unit. On mine, it's a peach-colored wire, and is
the activation wire for the DVD feature. During the installation, the
instructions call for this wire to be tapped into the emergency brake
indicator light wire. The reason is this:
The e-brake indicator light is what is called a "ground complete" circuit. That means that the bulb always has power applied, but when you pull the brake, that puts a ground to the wire and completes the circuit, allowing it to illuminate. The head unit sees this ground, and activates the DVD player.
In my Jensen unit, I simply ran this wire to a ground (I used a screw near the fuse box), and I put a switch on the wire, so I could break the ground contact at will. Jensen calls for a procedure to activate DVD playback. In their instructions, they tell you to select DVD from the option menu, and when the "lawyer screen" comes up (the one warning you to park before you watch a movie), you release the e-brake for 3-5 seconds, and then reapply it. To simulate that with the switch I used, I leave the switch closed (activated), and select DVD. Then I flip the switch "off" for 3-5 seconds, and flip it back "on". This tricks the head unit into thinking I put the e-brake off for a few seconds and then put it back on, and the movie will start. Then I can drive away.
Basically, ground the wire that is used for DVD activation, and put a switch inline on it. Then you can break and reapply the ground in whatever manner is required by the manufacturer of your head unit. If there is no off/on sequence with yours, as there is with mine, simply ground the wire to a screw inside the dashboard and you're done.
