Smile DIY - Enable DVD player on front display

Succeed. Thanks to AceFX and rippjd.

For 2006-2008 E65/E66 with rear Entertainment System, you only need to change one option TV_VIDEO_ABSCHALTUNG from "aktiv" to "nicht_aktiv" in module MMIGT.

Wow that is really cool. Nice work guys! Now I wish I had rear entertainment. Are you able to watch DVD on the go or only parked?

Only when parked. I only need that for now. But will research programming option to enable "VIDEO-IN-MOTION" without using a third party component.

Good Job on working out the details! I am assuming that maybe you can use the front IDrive controller to do this?

You should change the title of this topic . This is truly not a DIY , You
don't explain anything or give any directions beside telling people to
change TV_VIDEO_ABSCHALTUNG from aktiv to nicht_aktiv .

YOU SHOULD EXPLAIN WHAT SOFTWARE IS USED & WHAT MODULE
YOU HAD TO ACCESS TO GET TO THAT LINE OF CODE . & MAYBE
GIVE A LITTLE OF AN EXPLANATION OF THE PROCESS .

It's clearly that you missed the part that I mentioned "in module MMIGT" in my original post. However I respect your constructive criticism, but my bar is high. Whoever didn't understand my post probably shouldn't touch their cars to begin with. BTW, my definition of DIY is something that you can do without obtaining helps from the Dealer or INDY. Fair enough?

OH YOU MEAN AFTER YOU EDITED YOUR POST & ADDED MMIGT .
OK WELL i GUESS .

NOT TOUCH THERE CAR .

BUT AS I STATED YOU NEED TO CHANGE YOUR TITLE & MAYBE
THINK ABOUT WHAT A DIY TOPIC IS !!! WHY DON'T YOU GO
TAKE A LOOK AT THE OTHER DIY TOPICS TO GET A BETTER
IDEA , I'M SURE YOU WILL SEE THE DIFFERENCE IN YOUR SO
CALLED DIY TOPIC & OTHERS .

That's 2nd evidence of your poor reading. Every edited post should have an edit date underneath of it. Check it before you accused someone with malicious intent. I'm really surprised all these comments came from a respectful long-time member.

I don't have rear entertainment but I do have TV....once I changed TV_VIDEO_ABSCHALTUNG from nicht_aktiv to aktive (thinking it might enable video in motion lol) and i lost my Video option in idrive. just wanted to share my experience with this code. I believe there is no way to enable video in motion by coding.

Will BMW or an independent mechanic perform this change for me? I actually dont care about watching a video from the front screen, but I do want to control the rear screen from the front. By son sits in the middle of the back seat in a booster seat and the controls are not accessible for him. I have limited control with the voice commands right now.

Since I am new to this forum and coding, I would like to know if it is as easy as getting a laptop, cable, and coding program?

You're right, there is no way to program that. It's pretty much a myth as far as I understand.

so your saying its just a coding issue and no outside hardware needs to be introduced to the vehicle in order to have a picture on the front nav screen?>

You can enable video in motion on the front screen with only coding changes. No third party hardware is required.
