Sony Mobile TV Diversity unit???

Postby delichris » Tue Sep 25, 2012 6:13 pm

Anybody know what this is??

I found it under the the Front passenger seat tucked under the carpet.
For what it's worth, my van was briefly used as a bush ambulance. I have a feeling it has something to do with that.
I haven't taken the time to trace the wires yet but it looks like two of them go towards the centre console.

Probaly a tv tuner so you can get three fuzzy channels.

Looks like the TV Antennae unit I had in my L400 when it arrived in Canada...it also had a dash mounted TV, a huge 1st generation GPS system that used CDs and a control wand of some kind, assumed it was a control for the TV. None of my stiff worked so it got yanked in short order and donated to the Staples Electronics Recycle program.

Its not a factory part so you can probably tear it out....mind what you cut as far as wires are concerned.....your seatbelt wires might be tangled in a wire-nest like mine were.

My 4 round PIN plugs ran to individual external antennaes located on the exterior glass. Thats what the stamp ANT is for.
Yeah I joined the Dark Side because the medical plan is top shelf!

Yeah, Think i'm going to yank it this week. Not that there's room for anything else under the seat...
I didn't get the old school GPS or TV in the dash, Just a gaping hole that I have been slowly filling with a stereo and gauges.
