Not to be harsh, but if we knew what the problem was, we just may be able to help you.

I'll help you out bro. You must be talking about tv shutting off the moment you put the gear in drive. www.nav-tv.com can fix it for you for several hundred bucks. I hope I got the address right

yeah, my friends M5 had it work done where the tv is available while the vehicle is in motion. i think he either got it reprogrammed, or he got a new circuit or something; but it is possible.

AZ325Ci is on a distinguished road
yes, the link www.navtv.com has products that can fix this for you.

e36_332i, i'm not sure, but i think the aftermarket products should be able to play while in motion, again, i'm not sure. also, i believe you will need to have a separate DVD player in order to play movies. the DVD's will not work in the DVD nav system.

TVPincDoc is an unknown quantity at this point
There is an interlock because it is illegal to drive with a television playing in the front seat of a vehicle.

That said, our local installer deactivated the "interlock" for about $100 after having us sign a waiver (I guess that they don't want a lawsuit regarding an accident caused while "distracted" watching TV while driving!).

It is possible, but the reason is that it's the law, not a problem with aftermarket manufacturers missing a good feature.

Marks325i is an unknown quantity at this point
To watch the movie/nav while driving, you need to find the wire that goes from the back of the radio to the park switch in the shifter, then ground it out. I had a 2000 Stratus, that I put a Kenwood indash dvd player into. It said to put one wire to the side to the park witch that was ground only in park. Hope this helps.
