dim to a preset level.
Front Panel Display:
In addition to the 7" touch-panel monitor, the ECD-T1780DV has a front panel display which
can be used when the monitor is retracted. The display provides you with all information relative to
the source in use, such as radio station

separate audio/video program on an optional rear monitor screen, while the front
seat passengers enjoy a completely separate source. When the 2-Zone function is
on, rear passengers can enjoy the DVD or Aux 1, 2, or 3.
Rear View Camera Compatible:
You can connect a rear view camera to the unit's Aux 3 video input. When the
vehicle is shifted into reverse gear, the video from the rear view camera will
automatically appear on the screen. The purple/white wire in the supplied
harness must be spliced into the vehicle's backup lamp circuit in order for this
to occur automatically. You can also view the video from the rear view camera at
any time by selecting the source in the menu.
and Outputs Notes
Auxiliary Inputs: The
ECD-T1780DV has three auxiliary inputs:
- Aux 1: Aux 1 is a 3.5mm
minijack audio/video input on the front panel for connecting a camcorder or
portable MP3 player. Note: You must use the supplied A/V cable
adapter when you connect an audio only device.
- Aux 2: Aux 2 is an
audio/video input with RCA composite video and stereo audio jacks for
connecting a VCR or video game console. This input is on a 6" pigtail
connected to the rear panel.
- Aux 3: Aux 3 is a video
only input with an RCA composite jack for connecting a rear view camera.
This input is on a 12" pigtail.
Rear Monitor Output: One set of
A/V jacks (RCA composite video/stereo audio) is provided to output audio and
video to an external monitor. This output is on a 9" pigtail.
Subwoofer Output: A mono
subwoofer preamp output is provided on a 10" pigtail on the rear panel. The
output has a dual RCA jack, however, the audio is mono. You can manually adjust
the subwoofer output in the audio menu.
Reverse Gear/Parking Brake
Detection: The unit's main power harness contains a purple/white wire which
should be spliced into the vehicle's backup lamp circuit to determine when the
vehicle is shifted into reverse gear. When power is supplied to this wire, the
video from a rear view camera (connected to the Aux 3 input) is shown on the
monitor. There is also a light green wire in this harness that should be spliced
into the parking brake lamp circuit. The monitor will not display video unless
this wire is connected to the parking brake circuit (to the "ground" side) and
the parking brake is engaged. This is a safety feature to prevent video from
being visible to the driver when the vehicle is moving.
Optical Digital Output: The
ECD-T1780 is equipped with a proprietary round optical digital connector, for
connecting the unit to a Dolby Digital surround processor.
