They put the A/V ports in the back to accomodate back seat passengers since technically they will be the ones viewing the video. It is not that usefull for the driver or front seat passenger.I guess there is no difference in hdmi or av as the screen is pretty crappy haha. Well it is a tad far but its good news that there's another choice to the DVD.
I will buy that apple one maybe. I read it's 6feet long gstom you think that might reach the front seat? Wonder why Honda put it there
Phil you use a 15 ft hdmi or your kids grown enougH to use the iPad
Yes! Patiently waiting an answer, as my kiddos want to watch videos off the iPhone and iPadI have 2005 EXL-RES and have tried, without success, to play videos from ipad via the rear RCA jacks (input set to AUX). I have the right ipad/rca cable - i have been able to play videos from ipad onto home TV without problems.
I know this is an old thread, still replying in case this comes handy for others. I recently found out that the video output from the apple products equipped with the "lightning port" will be digital only, meaning there will be no analog conversion to support a video output via composite cable into the rear aux video inputs. In other words, that apple composite AV cable won't work as well. That cable works ONLY on the older 30 pin connector Apple devices (iphone 4/4s and older and original ipads) as they had an on-board digital to analog converter chip to facilitate this. You can however buy a digital to analog converter(usually a box needing power via usb to micro/mini-usb cables. Don't waste your money on cables with different heads on either side, e.g., hdmi-composte) with composite output and that will probably help you in your quest. Hope this helps someoneYes!

I just tried this box: Amazon.com: Tendak 1080P HDMI to AV 3RCA CVBS Composite Video Audio Converter Adapter Supporting PAL/NTSC with USB Charge Cable for PC Laptop Xbox PS3 TV STB VHS VCR Camera DVD: ElectronicsThought I would bring this thread back to life. Has anyone found an HDMI to RCA conversion box that they are happy with? Looking on Amazon shows countless options, many that are almost identical looking but with wildly different ratings. I'm looking to play videos off of an iPad Air with the Lightning connector.
I just got a 2006 with old school AV cable inputs. Got the following below works great.
