Hook up your brake wire through a manual switch and switch on and off every time you turn your key on and off. Goodluck.

wire a switch from the purple and white wire to ground the wire should say e-brake or something to that degree. turn on the radio so it says that message then flick the switch 1 or 2 times till i comes on

look at the install diagram(wiring codes) that came with the unit. if it has a wire that's designated for the parking brake (allowing you to only watch dvds while brake is engage) take that wire and instead of hooking it up to the parking brake, ground it or put an in-line switch between wire and ground so you can turn that function on and off. warning!!! watching while driving is illegal in most states

This is a problem with break wire. I too expierienced this. It is NOT a problem with radio. You need to ground the break wire in the harness. It is a protection wire so that it knows the emergency break is on. In other words it is supposed to stop you from watching movies while driving. Grounding the wire disbales the feature thinking the break is on. If you want to use the safety feature properly it should be connected to the emergency break switch that is grounded when pulled up or on.

I don't know about stereo installation but a customer at walmart wrote this review so it seems it worked for them. Also I have an exact unit with the only difference being that mine is sold as "DP Video, model: DP432" but everything is the same as your unit and it works fine.
"I am happy with this product and it works great. I read before I bought it that a customer was dissatisfied because it had to be in park to work, but if you ground out that wire it works fine all the time. Clear screen and its not too small like some of the others I've seen. I would definitely recommend this product."
Anyways, my advice is that you have it professionally installed to get it right, if you did then take it back to your installer and let them know it's not working right.
