7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
Discussion of BMW's 4th generation E65/E66 7 Series flagship. The E65 generated much controversy, due to its radical styling and iDrive user difficulties. Nonetheless, the E65 broke records to become the best-selling 7-series iteration ever, especially after its 2005 facelift.

TV Tuner Issue

So I've just retrofitted the rear entertainment together with the proper tuner and antenna paraphenalia, I even threw in a new MMI and ASK from the same car.

I know that everything worked as it should as I tested everything from the donor car prior to removing what I needed and then installing it in mine.

So all works well, except one issue which is driving me nuts.

When I first started the car up after hooking everything up, i had a long list of TV channels - I selected one and once I selected that it would be locked onto that one. So now instead of a list of channels, I only have the one channel.

This is a consistent behaviour, everytime I reset the MOST loop I get exactly the same behaviour - a list of channels, whichever I pick, that's the one I'm stuck with untill the next reset.

So for some reason it's not refreshing the channel list all the time, it just stick with whatever the first one was. This did not happen in the donor car!

I'm stumped and would really value some insights if anyone has any.

The only thing I haven't done is update the VIN in the TV module - I was set to do this for all modules but they all just worked without question - perhaps this is the odd one out.

Actually - thinking about this, the unit doesn't show up in the module list in NCS expert, is this normal for that unit?

If it isn't that would point to the VIN coding...no?

Changed the VIN on the module - no change.
