As “Vanny” quite rightly said “it’s not completed until the phaaat lady sings”, well a can quite clearly hear the “phaaat lady” singing, Pet Shop Boys in this instance, quite clearly through the headphones now, not that the Pet Shop Boys would like
Me referring to them as the “phaaat lady”🤔
Led fully lite indicating receiving audio signals.
I tested the headphones from the passenger seat and worked perfectly also, so a bonus is the passenger can also watch the TV/movie whilst the driver can listen to any audio source which is far less distracting.



Have fitted the wireless headphone transmitter and fully tested it and it’s working perfectly.













Last real job to do is to put 2 usb outlets in the back of the centre console, 1 for PWR/input into the RSE system and the other just a 5v outlets for charging. I’ve already bought spare covers ready for this purpose. I’ve have something quite special planned and should really finish of everything really nicely and “factory” with a bit more “Grand Black Laquer” being used to match door handles.



I also ran the LVDS cable from the RSE module in the rear to under the drivers seat ready to be connect to the USB port in the rear of the console.

Well i'm a little bit behind Stu, which is annoying as at one point I was ahead, but I have one fully working screen and headphones! She's grown out of Peppa so will be watching 'Robots' for the time being.

I'm still awaiting the remote control. The white fire transmitter is strapped to a rear head rest. I still dont have a second screen. And haven't replaced the non functioning DVB-t module. But that is just fettling now . . .

If your interested, total cost so far has been £305. The screen was the main expense, and I did really well with the RSE module and harness.

And relax.

Rear USB’s installed and operational including some matching illumination.
Left hand USB outlet is 500ma charger and input to rear entertainment whilst right USB outlet is a
fast charge outlet which plugs directly into power outlet in centre compartment.
All that’s remaining to do now is the WiFi/hotspot which will allow rear seat passengers to stream/mirror services such as Stan, Netflix, utube directly to rear screens.
