Axxera video parking brake connection

OK,got a question for owners of the Axxera radio. Has anyone tried to "defeat" the video lockout when the parking brake is not set?

Not wanting to play DVD,s here, but have satellite radio connected to rear audio inputs. Then I have a nice blue screen. Was thinking of bridging the video output from the camera switch to the rear video input with the satellite radio audio. That way I can have the rear camera view, but still be able to use the volume of the radio ( which is non functioning during normal camera mode)

But, I am thinking that this video input is "locked" out without the parking brake set, which kind of defeats the whole idea.

I think that grounfing the parking brake lead "should" work. Just wondered if anyone had tried it?

Went ahead and attempted this, worked like a charm. Now I can listen to satellite radio, have the rear camera working AND still have a working volume control

Great I would love to do this. Was it difficult to do?

Not at all. Took a video cable (RCA plug on both ends) plugged into rear video in in the Axxera. The other end goes to VIDEO out in the camera switch, which is behind the speedometer in our VEGAS. I cut the pink BRAKE cable from the radio and attached to the radio ground. I already had our XM radio plugged into the left and right audio into the Axxera rear inputs. That was it.
