Default Navigation System question - Can I use it to play DVD movies???

I just got a TSX with Navi and MP3 player and I love it. I was
wondering if anybody knew how to tap the LCD display of the Navigation
system to watch DVD movies...

Is there a way to tap the input so that I can attach a video player
(like a laptop or portable vidoe player) to the LCD and stereo system?

Does anyone know of a hack to make the DVD deck in the back be able to
decode a DVD movie?

Any other suggestions?

Ken

Congratulation! I just got mine (6-speed manual with nav) a few days
ago. I love it and it is as fun as Car and Driver described.

I have a similar question in my mind since I bought the car but I am
also a person who is seeking the answer.

I have andother question: can someone tell me how I can hook up my
iPOD to the stereo system?

Thanks in advance.

I do not think the factory system can display DVD movies. I think the screen
is the problem as the resolution is not compatible with that required for a
movie. In addition it is not safe and is illegal in many states. The movie
must be available to the back seat passengers only.

I think you will need to get the iPod FM adapter.

As I recall there is a composite video connector on the back of the
display that connects video to the nav box in trunk (as least on the
old 98-99 models). The procedure was to put a switcher in the line,
and pipe the second video input of the switch to the aftermarket DVD
player. There was also a switch installed in the audio line between
the nav and the Bose radio.

I think I saw it at http://www.acura-tl.com in one of the forums.
