Default Headrest DVD players + accessories - FOC

Hi all

Not vintage exactly... well in some ways I suppose DVDs are pretty vintage... but hopefully of interest to someone one here.

This is a set of car headrests with built-in DVD players. They are quite a nice design, and replace entirely the normal car headrest with a single unit which contains a DVD player under a hinged screen. The wiring harness allows both units to show the same video or different ones, and it also allows input from an external HDMI and various other things. They will need wiring in to a suitable 12V supply in the car, I tapped off the back of the cigarette lighter although added a 'kill switch' for getting attention.

Both come with infra-red remotes, which double as games controllers and there is a disc with each containing loads of games (mostly from the NES and similar).

The units support infra-red headphones but I think I've only got one working set left, although you can also use them with wired headphones which we found a lot more reliable. You can also buy new IR headphones for these, I think they are all the same. They have two channels, A&B, so the person in the middle in the back can choose which to listen to!

They are well used, but in full working order (or at least they were when put away). My kids loved them in the far-off days before they had mobile phones and they made long journeys a pleasure.

Having a major clearout and need to get them out of the way so free to collector. Can probably throw in some kids DVDs if this is of interest, we have loads.

Will run a hat if there is interest, I'm in Harborne (south Birmingham)

Could I also go in the hat please James? Sound ideal to keep the two grandchildren entertained in the car, they would love the games as well!

Many thanks,

Peter

Thanks all and sorry for the delay

I allocated 'heads' and 'tails' and flipped a virtual coin three times, and the overall winner was Reelman - so congratulations Peter and I'll drop you a message
