As it goes, we both got back early today and it was still light enough to take the current unit out, so gave it a go before it got too dark to take photos. The pictures are not great, but, hopefully you will be able to see the leads and connectors available.

I have taken the photos in a couple of batches as there are quite a few. Also took some photos of the area behind the radio to show the fitting space available and the bar which currently holds the radio that would need to be removed (I assume that it unscrews from somewhere?).

Thanks

BLOCK - that is stunning and probably well worth the effort and pain you had to go through to get there. Did you get it fully working? Including the CD and sat nav?

I don't suppose you have any photos of the back or the wiring do you? I would like to compare with the cables I have in the back of mine. Or, if you have any thoughts on the cable sets at the back of my unit in my photos.

Yes but still no fully working. I am checking to Dietz Interfaces from Germany now. I will buy a multimedia interface. Wake up , phone, cd changer , Front TV, steering wheel control don't work yet. Tomorrow mercedes will start on Star Diagnosis and check error codes. but I am sure that for TV, I will need multimedia interface. Because old comand 2.5's TV Cable so different than 2.0. I also checked your photos but i would not comment on it. But I am sure 2 of cables are same with mine. I also research same for your car too. If i find something adapter, i will submit. Its really easier to buy a converter or adapter than changing pins and lose functions.

Wake up, lightining, cd changer, Steering wheel control will work..The rest is no interface and PLEASE trust me..There is nothing Star Diagnose can do..Just a wasre of money. Dietz can not help eighter...There is nothong in the market for this. I am like the only one done this swap and I have done it 4 times now with no prob.

Same with phone..Dont know what kind you have but mine worked...when it comes to the TV you mean that the TV module in the back dont show where? I though you said it worled now?

I understand you chris but I mean the interface for TV. Well OEM Mercedes original tv tuner is on vehicle and scren in rear shows tv correctly because its not depended to front command. But to watch tv on front, i need put RGB Video Cables to C1 connector. After i moved pins, now c1 connector is totaly empty on new comand. Because all c1 pins needed to move to c2. And In new comand pinouts, c1 has Tv video RGB pins but Comand 2.5 has tv pins ( Tv Video ) on Connector D and check out connector, thats gray one cable marked with black; It is an Connector D and has TV Video pins.

1, I though you did the 17 and 18 thing..This probebly solves this problem.
2, You need to buy pins and fix them your self.
