    You're yellow video input sends the video signal to the screen and the yellow video output allows you to connect another screen to the same signal for example if you wanted a second screen in the other headrest to show the same DVD. The same applies to the audio inputs/outputs although they just deal with the sound(obviously!). Hope that helps as I'm not always the best at explaining things clearly (ask my girls!)

    Get the input signal from whatever you want to show on the screen! PS2 is good and always keeps the kids happy (and quiet!)

    Sorry another question. The audio out. Could i put some small speakers in the baby seat and conect it to the the audio out. Is their a lead something like red/white plugs to a 4mm jack???? Just thinking the DVD will not have to be as loud then.

    Thanks.

    will just make it easy to add more screens you just loop from this screen to the next
    the screen may have a booster to,,, so theres no flicker when you plug the next screen in

    Ok i now have 2 small speakers to build into either the rear seat car headrest or babyseat head cushion. I have the red and white audio out, If i connect a lead to that and run it to the speakers, I presume it's a 2 wire cable for both left and right.
    Then i just connect it up left + - and right + -.
