FYI. P/N 65 50 9 147 138, the new analog/digital ("High") video module has now been superseded by 65 50 6 988 079.

I found that new number on the ETK but it did not show that it was for the I-bus cars or that it replaced that prior P/N. Are you sure it's not for the MOST bus cars?

I'm not 1000% certain, but I will say that all the parts ordering sources I've checked show the 138 to be superceded by 079. For example see here:

That's interesting. I went to Crown BMW and found the same. When I went to the Factory BMW ETK site, parts.bmwgroup, they don't show the replacement just the new number and no supersession. Of course it doesn't do us any good since we have the screwed up US digital system that other countries don't use.

Yeah that is weird. I agree, our system sucks. I just wanted to help update your list. Incidentally, when BMW says "High" does that mean Hybrid? Because if so, then a large number of the tuners you list as analog only are listed as High, which might change things.

BTW, any news on whether a converter for the BMW tuner is out yet that works well?

So that is your problem, it is still coded for the car it came out of. You need to find somebody to code the TV module with INPA (?) the aftermarket coding equipment, or a BMW device such as an OPS. The other alternative is to buy a NAVCODER device and software (pretty cheap) and switch it to the English.

Ok thanks for explaining this to me. Now I have to find someone who can do this for me in the North London area or buy the software and do it myself!
