Ok, I would like to be able to choose the source of the rse
this would be nice for the kids behind.

Here is the menu I was referring to. It enables a few controls for the rear.

Indeed I have the same, but I really wish I could get full control of the RSE

Here is how I routed the monitor harness through the location where the seat plugs are.

This is the factory part that covers the base of the monitor. See part number. This is not listed in the parts catalog. Itís approx 80 usd and comes with the front half and back half.

This is the front seat with back cover removed so I could route the wiring to the monitor.

Here is the other half. Notice same part number.

Default Video format

Does anyone know if the rear RSE will play mp4 or other media format movies?

I can play MP4 on the front and back unit yes.

It is just important to re-encode your videos to match the following specs :
Codec: H264 - MPEG-4 AVC
Video resolution: 720x404
