Have tried a few different formats according to the documentation but haven't had luck being able to have the car recognize (or play) a DVD movie from a USB drive.

1. Any suggestions on a good program to use to convert the movie into (and what format)?

Check the owners manual page 4-69. USB must be formatted FAT16 or 32. Also, it only likes Divx video codecs and mp3 or acc for the audio for avi files and MPEG4/g.726 for .asf files. I've been converting using dvdfab kid shows to the Divx codec .AVI, Formated FAT32 USB. Working fine. Try a small file first to see if it works. I had to change the dault setting on dvdfab for avi to convert to Divx. The audio I kept at acc.

Question about playing from USB.

If I plug in USB to play a video while I'm in park and it displays on the front seat main navigation screen, when I start driving, will it still keep showing?

Basically, what I'm asking is if I'm driving, can my passenger in the front seat watch a movie on the navigation screen?

It will not do this from factory because it is illegal due to it being a distraction. You can take it to a custom audio place though and have the cable grounded off. So to answer your question, yes it is possible but you will need to find a place that will do it for you.

This format information is on page 4-67 in my manual. You can download a coverter program at www.divx.com.

You will have to use one of the formats that saves in .avi format. You will also have to modify the size of the output so that it is 720 pixels or smaller. Also, modify the audio to so that you are using mp3 format.

playing movies from iPad

So, I thought I was being all smart by ordering the 30 pin to RCA cable to play movies from my old iPad 2. My plan was to download movies from my cable provider (Comcast) which I can do perfectly legally. When the movies 'expire', I would download new movies from Comcast thereby keeping my children entertained.
Everything works EXCEPT when I try to play the movie, the screen states something about due to security settings I can only play movies on a mobile device. Is there any work around to this?

Any ideas?

What application are you using? Sounds like some sort of DRM preventing you from displaying on a secondary source, which you could easily "capture" or copy.

I'm using the Xfinity TV To Go app on my IPad. I can watch movies that appear in the Videos folder of the IPad on the screens in the car, but I get a security error when I try to watch the Xfinity downloaded movies.
I've read the terms of service agreement and I'm not violating any of the rules, so I'd love to get this to work.
I'm not sure what DRM is, but I'll google it.

This is not a DRM issue, but a restriction put by xfinity. I have the same app on my phone and it won't even let me play it on the TV using Miracast or Screencast. Haven't tried it to play on the QX60, but I know it won't work. Basically Comcast doesn't want people to be playing their videos on anything other than the screen of the mobile device their app is running on. All these companies are just too paranoid about people stealing their content.
