SOURCE: Wiring installation
You do need a 208/240 volt supply from your service panel. The green is ground, white is nuetral, and the red and black should measure 120 volts each to ground or 240/208 between each other. It is normal for most breaker panels to supply 208/240 between adjacent insulators. If you are only getting 1/2 of that then the circuit breaker may not be straddling the insulator bar but be 1/2 notch out and both breaker pins contacting the same 110 supply.

SOURCE: parking wire
To my knowledge the white/brown wire of a Dual XDVD8181 goes to the reverse lamp/switch. The pure yellow wire should go to an always on B+12 such as the battery positive terminal. It is the yellow/blue that goes to the emergency/parking brake.
Incidentally, this model is one of those that grounding the brake wire would allow DVD playback. There is a little trick to make it work. It should start first as +12 before it should be grounded before the DVD will play hence a DPST switch would be required, not only grounding.
This is better explained here. Should you be in need of the manual, it is available here.
Additionally and a friendly reminder, in some regions, it is not allowed to view a DVD movie while vehicle is in motion.
Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.

SOURCE: wire diagram i think
pink wire if its to go to ground then any metal is ground or negative not live in other words they say the handbrake so you cant use it whilst driving so any metal should do for this ok.
Are you wiring it to amp or not?
Also the mute only wires into say phone cradle or something that would mute the stereo say if you had phone in craddle this would mute the sound so you could here the call. so not needed unless you have phone craddle.
If the two lives are wired in and the ground black when you earth the pink then it should switch on let me know if this happens.
Auto ant is for the arial on car if this goes up and down on motor if not then its not needed
Ill check on dimmer/illumination ok but bare with me for couple of hours just popping out but will get back to you then ok

For a single-pole installation:
1. Connect the 2 white wires together (one from the source and the other to/from the light fixture) - 2 wires
2. Connect the black wire from the source to the black wire on the dimmer switch - 2 wires
3. Connect the black wire to/from the light fixture to the red wire on the dimmer switch - 2 wires
4. Connect the ground wires - 3 wires
