The parking brake wire is a ground, on the install manuel shows it as a positive. i connected mine to my cig lighter. and just replaced the positive wire feed to the cig lighter with a ground wire feed (directly to the metal frame). so all you have to do is push in the cig lighter to watch videos and pull out the cig lighter to the resting position and the blue screen saver will show with full audio.

The emergency brake warning will not go away even when the emergency brake is I need the remote in order to operate the dvd player?

The warning is there because the signal that the brake has been engaged doesn't reach the player - either the unit was badly installed or there's a fault in the wiring. To find which you will have to remove the unit and test the wiring.
BTW you don't need the remote, almost all functions can be easily accessed from the buttons on the unit. The remote is there so that the passengers from the rear seats don't have to lean towards the central console to operate the unit.

How do i hook up my parking brake wire on my xdvd710

The yellow/blue wire out the back of the head unit needs to be hooked up to the same wire that is responsible for illuminating the "BRAKE" light on your dash. This tells the DVD player that the car is not in motion. Where this wire is and how to tap into it is entirely dependent on what kind of car you have. You may need to trace the wire out or consult a wiring diagram.

If you wish to bypass this feature (which may be illegal in some states) try this:

** Insert a DVD
** Let it play until you hear sound
** Press STOP twice on remote
** Enter 26604
** Press ENTER

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.
