couple more questions

#1...Sometimes when I'm watching a movie on my dvd player in my car, I hear this whining noise? Any idea what it is or how to get rid of it?

#2...If I'm just sitting in my car, watching a dvd with the key in the first position, then turn it farther to start the car up, the dvd has to restart all over it and has to load again. Any way to get around this (wire something differently?)

Thanks guys!

#1: Sounds like alternator whine. You can try changing the ground wire from behind of your DVD/HU player and see if that helps. I had a whine in my friend's car that I just couldnt get rid of...movement of wiring, changing of ground at multiple places...I finally gave up and went to radioshack for a 20amp filter and hooked it up behind the hu... the ground and power wires ran into the filter. Noise has yet to resurface.

#2: When you engage the ignition to turn-over the engine, all electrical needs are cutoff for a brief moment, and the battery's primary aim is for the brief moment is to power the starter motor. You cant get around this, unless you hook up the ignition wire and tap into the constant 12v with a inline switch. I dont think a relay would help in this case. If anyone else can think of something different I'd be very curious So...umm dont start the car until your movie is finished, or watch the movie with the engine in idle.

#1: What do you mean by changing the ground wire? You mean just moving it around? What does the 20amp filter look like? How much does it cost?

#2: So if I hook it up to the yellow wire instead of the red, it will always be on? What is an inline switch?

I really appreciate the help, thanks! Sorry, I don't know some of the terms, this is my first time installing any audio/video stuff.

It might be easier if you hear this whinning noise to just get a ground loop isolator. I had this issue on one of my cars and I bought that and it got rid of it completely. They really work. Does the sound get louder when you rev the engine? If so like he said you can try grounding your stuff better/different spot or by the isolator

It's a little box with RCA Ins and RCA outs and it eliminates/deminishes ground loops. If you're hearing your alternator/engine in your music (like if when you rev the engine, even in Park you hear the loud whining noise getting louder) than you have a ground loop. So either something isn't grounded well or you're getting interference and you need to ground it better; or you can get a ground loop isolator. Radio Shack or Circuit City should have them..... good luck
