Way to hook this up????

How can I hook a portable DVD player in my car so that when I hook it up, you can hear it on the MACH system.

does your CD player have line-in inputs? i think that you can use those on like aftermarket CD players, but by this post i assume maybe you have the stock stereo receiver? theres a line-out converter, maybe there is some kind of line-in converter. that may give you somethin to think about/look up until EW or someone shows up haha

You need an aux in adapter. If you have the capability of using an external changer then PIE probably has something that will work. Peripheral or PAC may also offer something, never know. I used the PIE X3 on my Jeep, works great!

You could also use an FM modulator as a last resort.

I'm clueless to this type of stuff, can you direct me to the right spot. Where can I find the aux in adaptor.

FYI: I have the stock 6 disc changer and radio.

http://www.pie.net/index-2-details.cfm?recordID=X3-FRDW is the PIE unit, it's around $100 for both the adapter harness and the adapter. You unplug your changer, plug it into their harness and then plug the other end into your head unit. When you select the cd changer you now can choose to play it or 3 different auxillary inputs. Basically it kills the audio feed from the changer and adds in whatever you want. The changer still plays, thats really the only draw back.

You could also use an FM modulator but I'm not a big fan of those. You unplug your antenna and it goes inline with it. Then it broadcasts the audio on a particular station.

What do you mean the changer still plays, so there will be a cd playing in the changer and the dvd will also be playing? Sorry for the dumbass questions.
