Charles Nunez: Thank you for your reply. Since I don't have an hdmi input on my
AVH-X4600BT could I use an hdmi to av converter and use the av connections
on back of the HU to connect with allsharecast dongle?
Charles Nunez: this may seem like a stupid ?, but do you connect the dongle via an hdmi
cable to the head unit and how is this accomplished since my avh-x4600bt
has an rgb input and I have not seen such a cable. Please let me know
Teejay Carlos: how many volts to power up the allshare cast? Are you using a car charger?
Mine is just lighting up ( Blinking red Light ) but not loading onto the
screen. I am not sure if the power is enough.
Ian Solanzo: Hey man are u running on 4.3, kikkat 4.42 or 4.2? Coz I'm having problems
with mine. Touch feature don't work. I'm js wondering if using the allshare
cast will fix it
Ben Fyfe: Shawn smith... im in the exact same situation. Do you have a remedy?
richard van wetering: hi the allshare cast dongle is that wifi underway? or is it used for
wireless mirroring from phone?
Shawn Smith: I'm trying to run this set up right now. I just installed the appradio2,
the allshare cast dongle and everything is connected right. I rooted my
Galaxy S3 and have ARLiberator running as SuperUser. I can mirror my phone,
but I cannot control my phone from the appradio. Do you know what is going
on? My appradio "home" button is the only thing that has any control, and
it just calls up my phone's voice command app.
J. Ward: O does the unit come with 5v pre outs for your amps?
Shawn Smith: When I rooted, it took away the option for the allshare cast in my
settings. So I did an Over the Air update. Now I lost root. What image did
you use on your i747? Do you have a link to the tar file? Did you need to
use the triangle counter reset app? Can you point me to a link of a root
image that WON'T lose the allshare cast?
Steven Rodriguez: @MrTwiggzz with a standard microusb 500ma car charger.
Robert Graham: I have teh Galaxy s3, with App radio 2 and arliberator and I'm rooted and
I'm having the same problem as kforce with the audio and a minor screen
lag.......The lag I can work with but the audio sounds high pitched and
Like it's only getting part of the signal, definitley not hdmi audio. Has
anyone else experienced this??
Ben Metzger: The app is called "Screen Standby"
Cory Patton: Do you have to manually connect to the dongle every time?
J. Ward: That is epic. Thanks for the info
ZaySwagga: I have a pioneer x5500bhs and I was told it supports smartphones and does
pretty much everything the app radio does but with a DVD player. Problem is
I want to be able to use ARLiberator with it. It does not have a hdmi cord
but a USB out. Do you think I can use the same method as you and use
Samsung Allshare Cast Dongle to a double USB port without the hdmi cable? I
have a Samsung g3. I'm thinking about returning it for app radio but would
like a DVD player.
Steven Rodriguez: PAC SWI Google It
Mr Twiggzz: It doesnt use any data. you could turn your mobile data off and it would
Steven Rodriguez: The unit comes with (2) RCA Pre Outs, one for front, on for sub. They are 2
Volt, not 5 Volt. I used an RCA Splitter to split the front and rear signal
for my amp setup.
Nate Fansler: i like the way you think sir, I've been playing around with a way to do
this and didn't think of this. I made a diy inductive charging backplate
and then made a diy window mount for it. But then i realized app radio
required it to be plugged in to be useful. i'll make a video soon and post
it for you. it's just what you need, to be where i want to be with my
setup. i use tasker quite a bit, have you refined your method much yet to
make it more automated or is it not possible?
Archie Dodge: Do you have to do the connection process each time you get in your car, or
can it connect automagically?
Tom Ziegelbauer: Steven, Off topic question in the beginning it sounds like you have a task
setup in tasker to speak when you are connected to your head unit. What is
the text to speech TTS software/voice you are using. I have been searching
for a good male voice and the one you are using is mighty good....thanks.
Steven Rodriguez: No thanks, I prefer my setup. Pioneer makes great products and I like
having everything in ONE place, not too. Amazing convenient having the
phone by my head unit, take it and go, and resume on the phone or in the
car. And the deck is hardly expensive. You can get it for under $400
Steven Rodriguez: Yes, yes, and the AppRadio2 Mic is on my vehicles A-Pillar.
John new: Please reply as soon as possible..... how much data this thing consume? be
jack hammer: Well I got my all share cast dongle to work to display properly on my App
radio 2 but there is serious lag time and the audio quality really sucks.
Have you experienced this? If so what did you do about it?
virusjkl: Hey I figured it out, it was my nintendo cover Lol.. basically sometimes I
just wouldn't push the MHL plug all the way into the phone. On another
note, recommend any good Roms for the At&t S3 that work with the
Steven Rodriguez: Not sure, I havent experienced that. Did you reset your flash counter to 0
with root Triangle Away?
Andrew Torres: I got the app and the mirror display is working but I cant control anything
on the dash like click on apps or anything. How do you get it so you
control everything from the dash screen and not the phone?
Steven Rodriguez: It uses Wifi to send the audio and video, and Bluetooth to transmit the
touch events. No data.
jerzybest: thanks steve for shareing this video and i really like the setup you did
but in order to do this do you have to root the phone? and can i do this
set up with AVH-X8500BHS ?
virusjkl: Hey I think I might have a similar problem, sometimes when I go to play a
video I get a black screen, on both my s3 and the appradio, I only get
audio.. sometimes I get video on my s3 and not on the appradio and other
times my video does come on and everything works fine.. Any idea what it
could be? (I'm rooted 4.0.4 using ARliberator)
Steven Rodriguez: None. This is a wifi direct connection between the dongle and the phone.
Tethering is when you use your phone as a mobile wifi hotspot for a laptop
or other computer.
Frederick Scott: does your phone get hot while charging because the face backlight is on?
im lusu: I ask u so many questions.. sorry for that but.. How much data is used for
tethering the audio and video to the screen?
Steven Rodriguez: Yes, phone has to be rooted. Yes, you have to connect to the dongle
manually each time, you may be able to get Tasker to do this somehow.
Thanks, I think its sweet too.
John new: Thanks for the quick reply.. I think You didnt get me.. Iam asking to
mirror my phone screen in the Apparadio through Allshare Cast, do i need to
use my mobile data? how the wireless think works? is it by Wifi (mobile
data) or Bleuthooth????
Mariny Marini: hey steven! i just bought the app radio 3 and i have a s3 but its rooted
with synergy rom. and when i connected my phone with the cable nothing
happens. but the music works via bluetooth. how can i connect my phone so i
can start using my apps and pandora? i downloaded the appradio app but
Steven Rodriguez: See video description for the charger.
ShawnTrapZ: Hi Steven, thanks for Vid I am just starting my AR2/S3 "adventure" so R U
using, Tasker to eliminate so many start up steps? R U still using AR
Liberator & a Rooted phone? As of now i have not rooted my phone, i connect
my S3 via "MHL-to-HDMI" cable to AR2 & see my phone screen, in landscape
mode, on my AR2, i just can not control phone via AR2 touch screen, i have
2 use the phones screen. Do you know if there is any way/app to enable the
use of the touch screen on the AR2 with out rooting?
skummar77: Do I need pioneer android wire too.and I will able to use all apps from
Steven Rodriguez: Hi Nate, Yes, this video is now pretty out of date. I've since used Tasker
and Ultimate Rotation Control to get this fully automated. AR Liberator has
come a long was as well.
Joe Betoski: Does your phone have to be rooted?
Steven Rodriguez: No, it will fit just fine in the original radio location. I made mine look
cleaner by ordering the JDM radio faceplate, so that I could delete the two
plastic spacers on the side of the OE head unit.
Bob Builder: Why not just by an Android 4.0 based head unit with DVD, 3G, WiFi, GPS off
of eBay? Instead of having your phone do all the work, pushing all that
data from your phone, thru the purchased cable to the expensive head unit?
Just buy a head unit that does all the same work as your phone. shrug.
Angel Rivera: Hi I know this is very old but could you tell me how much you paid for the
allshare cast dangle?
Steven Rodriguez: No, I have not found a way to do that yet without also locking the phone.
For now I just turn the brightness all the way down. There may be an app
out there to do this, I have not searched for one yet.
Steven Rodriguez: I am not the help desk for ARLiberator dude, I already told you, post your
questions on the appradioforums website.
J. Ward: Steven, can you use the swype keyboard from your AppRadio2 screen? Can you
place phone calls? If so where is the AppRadio2's microphone?
Nate Fansler: would you mind posting a new video of what you have going on? i'm right on
the verge of making the jump to purchasing the app radio but was holding
back based on the need to use a cable and no other usable input sources.
your video made me want to get it but only if you don't have to press a
bunch of buttons every time.
