Hello Gents,

Car info:
W211.008, pre-wired phone, retrofitted NTG 2,5

I retrofitted a NTG 2,5 with the help of you guys 1,5 years back :)
Everything works perfectly :D

As you all know Star wont communicate with a retrofitted NTG 2,5 (org. APS 50)

My question:

Would changing the vehicle datacard from APS 50 (code?) to NTG 2,5 (code?) let Star communicate with it in my car?

I want to fit a tv tuner. Will any aftermarket tuner work and could you please point me in the direction of one (if not, a Mercedes part no. please). It needs to be a DVB-T (mpeg4) tuner.

Would there be need to Star coding?

I'm aware the screen will turn off when exceeding 7 km/h.

Thank you in advance

Star will communicate with the NTG 2.5 when retrofitted. Fitting a TV tuner is possible but it will have to be the Mercedes one as the head unit will not talk to others. Star coding would be needed.

Thank you for the respons...

My dealer said that wasent possible unless my car is a 2009 model?

I've been mailing with Steve from Mbenz, he told me that entering in developer. mode as ex. 171 SLK would allowed Star to communicate with the NTG in my 2007 model car.

"no - stardiagnose will not communicate with any NTG2.5 in a 211 unless
the modelyear of the car is 2009 - stardiagnose doesn't care about the
actual optioncode but cares about the modelyear in the case of the
NTG2.5
if you enter the car with stardiagnose developper as a 171 SLK or some
different model then it actually is, you will be able to enter the
NTG2.5 comand with stardiagnose


Planing on buying a stock Mercedes.
"a TV tuner with antennas and wiring will cost 850 euro excl. 19% VAT,
incl. shipping per post" Quote from Steve.


Been looking on comandonline.co.uk aswell but they dont state if any wiring is included.

I can absolutely assure you that STAR will communicate with NTG 2.5 in most cases as we have done it in many cars from 2003 to 2011.

We (Comand Online) do not include the loom with the tuner but im sure we can get it. Its just that there hasnt been much demand thgus far.

How should code NTG 2.5 to communicate with aftermarket tv-tuner? There are tuners witch can do that:

For exaple:
FISCUBE® Mercedes NTG 2.5 KUFATEC® **38403** ENGLISH - YouTube

I have also NTG 2.5 multimedia interface witch should be able to control over comand.. My comand says "function unavailible" :(
You need to code the MOST ring on and set TV tuner and media interface to present. The media interface option is set on in at least two if not three places.

You will need STAR with developer mode.

Thank you Alfie!

I have codet Most ring to

pos.0 = HU/AGW
pos.1. = TV-tuner

There is still comfort phone in ring (shoud I remove most ring from phone module), Where is phone module?

I have set tv-tuner at Comand developer (there is TV icon in Video menu)
Did you remember places for media interface, I don't have code that yet..
