If you have the old firmware then all you need to do is ground the parking brake wire
OR
if you have the new firmware(just bought the system) a toggle switch is involved:
1 - connect e-brake wire from dvd unit to the switch
2 - connect a ground wire from switch to the unit chassis(any good metal grounding surface will do)
3 - pop in a dvd, toggle the switch back and forth 2 or 3 times depending on what wire you placed where...and voilaa!! your dvd system should work in motion!!

Wiring uv7i


you can use the deck without a remote, the only thing is you cant go into the system without the codes. there is a sequence code you must enter to disable it. there are a couple of videos on youtube but none for the uv7i. trust me, i 've been there on and off since the summertime. i am not sure if the sequence works due to me not hooking it up to external monitors but you can disable the blue screen with a on/off switch...only problem is, you'll have to do it everytime you turn your car on. here's what you do....
buy a on/off switch(radio shack $3)
hook the pink wire to one part of the switch-the other to the negative ground
put a dvd in(from what i hear, it must be store brought), wait unntil the blue screen comes up
turn the switch off...wait two seconds/turn on...wait two seconds/turn off...wait two seconds and turn back on. the blue screen is gone and video is on. ifyou still need the diagram, i'll scan mine for you.

The emergency brake sequence is simple. First apply your emergency brake, or engage your toggle switch on keep it on for 3-5 seconds then release or disengage for 3-5 seconds then reengage and a couple of seconds later you have vidieo. ENJOY.

install a switch with one end going to ground and the other to the pink barking brake wire off the deck switch it to on"ground" for 3 seconds then off"no ground" for three seconds do this 3 times and then leaving it in the ground position and it will work but the car must be in park when you do this

Playing a DVD on Phase Linear UV7


It must start out in the off position and then when you want to watch the video put it on. There should not be any more to it than that. You may have an intermittant connection on the parking brake wire that makes you think there is some type of sequence because the first time you set the parking brake it did not work. I would check and make sure the parking brake is always engaging the wire to ground when the parking brake is pressed.

I cant get a picture with my UV7i with or without the brake on


Its very simple splice the power wire "constant power" Red wire.

Next attatch the yellow parking switch wire to the constant power.

wallah... You can now watch movies on your in dash while driving! The deck thinks the brake is engaged

Alot easier then codes and pressing brake pedals and all that jive. They wont do it if your get it installed somewere so you have to do it yourself, its very easy

Phase linear UV7i makeing the dvd player without useing parking


There is a pink wire that goes to the parking brake. It connects to the ground wire on the parking brake that makes the brake light come on the instrument panel.

connect the pink wire on your stereo to a frame ground.
