Today I finished of a job that I started two weeks ago. The installation of Dension gateway 500, Dension AVR & DVB-T receiver (Digital TV tuner) in a 2007 e63 M6.
This particular car is what can only be described as stunning, immaculate & awesome! It is a well-cared for low miler car. Literally flawless paintwork.

I started two weeks ago with the Dension Gateway 500 install & parked the job as the AVR was not available at the time.
I had forgotten what a mass of cabling that was involved when I installed the same set up in my own e63, each piece on its own was not complicated but put it all together & then it can get a bit tricky.
For some reason there were problems connecting to the car with NCS Expert, I needed to do this in order to code the video in motion. I got a brainwave where I decided to remove the CCC from the car completely & then fit it in to my own e63 & code it through my car! It worked a treat! (I forgot to add the alarm chirps option in the menu though, it wasn’t what I was there for but it would have been good to do it seeing as I was there already).
The Dension Gateway has some fibre optic connections, I decided follow what I had done previously in my own car & tap in the fibres at the back off the CCC. All the devices that carry sound are connected in a fibre loops called MOST, the Bluetooth, Logic 7 amp, CCC, CD changer & the Dension unit.
I also hooked up the reverse camera that was already installed, it activates when you go in to reverse but there is interference when the engine is running. I have to find an alternative earthing source to resolve that I think.
Here’s some shots of the devices & cabling:

Rebel ranter that looks like a tidy install.
What kind of money are you talking about here? Specifically, my car 2005 E60 has the TV function, but no reception. I'm guessing that's because it's an analogue tuner? How could you recommend getting this sorted?
