TV conversion kit with two AV inputs

The conversion allows the TV to operate in Australia, New Zealand, UK and Ireland in the same way as it used to operate in Japan. All controls are through the EMV touch screen and the surrounding buttons, therefore preserving the original look and feel of the car TV. In addition to this, two auxiliary AV video/stereo audio inputs have been integrated into the tuner allowing for up to two external video devices such as DVD, camera, game console, laptop etc. to be connected. The two auxiliary inputs are selected through the TV channels 19 and 20. Due to limitation of the frequency bandwidth of the tuner some channels may not work, as listed below:

Australia: ch0 to ch3 and ch63 to ch69

New Zealand: ch1 to ch3 and ch59 to ch62

UK: ch59 to ch68

Ireland: ch A(2) to ch C(4)

 

The TV conversion requires purchasing of a tuner conversion kit and a separate purchase of a PAL to NTSC converter. Here is a document describing how the tuner conversion kit is to be assembled and installed.

Cost down TV conversion kit (without AV inputs)

For people who do not need AV auxiliary inputs controlled via the EMV TV screen menu, there is a cost down version of the TV tuner conversion kit. This kit replaces the channel conversion PCB, and all associated cable connections, with a single chip to be wired manually on the bottom tuner PCB.

EMV audio conversion kit

This kit converts the car FM radio to natively receive Australian FM broadcast without the need for FM band expanders. This makes the FM radio reception as good as if the radio was originally designed to work in Australia with all benefits of the factory diversity antennas.

In addition, all audio EMV menus are translated from Japanese to English and the EMV will correctly display the FM frequencies. Radio station names are displayed next to the frequency number (for both AM and FM channels).

The TV sound will use the radio equalizer and DSP processor settings.

EMV interface

The EMV interface adds Steering Wheel Remote control for all EMV functions which are normally operated via the EMV touch screen and buttons. It also allows to control off-the-shelf DVD, iPod dock and other players via the factory EMV touch screen (the players are required to have standard IR remote control). The EMV interface needs the TV kit with the two AV inputs to be installed first.
