Note: several people have suggested that the NAVI mute signal merely reduces the volume of the radio. This is not true. The front speakers are completely muted and the rear speakers are unaffected. It sounds like it a volume reduction, but you really just hearing the rear speakers at full volume. (If you don't believe me, play with your "fade" control.)

Just a clarification: Rollie's talking about the I-VES, the dealer add-on VHS deck with flip down ceiling mounted screen.<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Honda has not even been able to do this. They use an external fm modulato on their video system. </font>
It's a proprietary digital interface. Would be difficult (though not impossible) to hack. Peripheral makes an interface that allows you to connect a Clarion changer and add an RCA input.<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by karl:
I just got an 02 EX and want to connect my MP3 player to the CD player. Has anyone looked into connecting in where the CD changer or tape player would connect? I don't plan on adding either in the future. Would the volume control on the CD player still function?
Yep, head unit provides amplification.dgs said:Thanks to shinjohn, I just found this thread....
My question is, does the head unit provide amplification for the external source or does it just let it pass through? I don't think the headphone jack no the TV will provide enough power for the speakers.

The front door speakers and the dash tweeters are wired parallel to the front speaker outputs of the head unit. The head unit has 4 speaker outs.dgs said:
Hey shinjohn (or anyone else who knows),
Before I tear my dash apart to tackle this, does the EX CD head unit have 6 speaker outputs or 4? I know there are 6 speakers, 4 in front and 2 in back, but are the two pair of fronts wired in series off of the sasme radio outputs?
The ETM is the one that has the radio wiring codes and harness. Here's some radio code info:
Aslo, I am planning to get the Helm service manual soon, are the diagrams for the radio outputs in there or do I need to buy the wiring manual too? I was hoping not to buy the wiring manual.
Thanks for all of you're help.

This one is $40.
I'm asking because I am planning a video install when my Ody ('02 RRP EX-L) arrives, and am thinking along those lines.
What I'm actually thinking about doing is splitting the audio to a wireless headphone xmitter & an FM modulator, so the front seaters can ignore or listen to the audio.
