I hooked up the Nintendo Classic to the Uconnect today. I used the USB in the seat for power and the HDMI hookup. The game had some serious lag in it, making it difficult to play. Has anyone experience this or any reason why a simple gaming system would perform poorly when hooked up to the UConnect?

When I hooked up my NES Classic, I had it powered from the USB port at the bottom in the front row. No issues.

Have mine plugged in using the rear USB without any major lag. Got it nicely tucked into the front driver seat pocket. Can't wait for the wife to go shopping while I just hang and geek out in the back seat on old school 8-bit NES games! Already ordered a 2nd controller for some 2 player action via shared screens. There's already a simple mod out there that lets you install the entire NES library. Can this minivan get any more cooler?!

I've run a slim HDMI cable from Monoprice behind each of the front seats, with a right angle HDMI adapter to avoid bending an HDMI plug sticking out too far. I have the cable run all the way down, hidden, to somewhere under the seat, and then I can connect the other end to whatever I want, like my Fire TV Stick on one side, and my NES Classic on the other side. This minivan was made for today's devices. Love it!

Ninentendo NES

I'm trying to connect a Nintendo NES classic mini edition through my second row screen via HDMI. The Nintendo powered up but I do not get a picture. Is there a setting somewhere that I'm missing? I have the input selected as HDMI and everything seems okay, however no picture or sound. Any ideas would be appreciated

Thank you.

Hi Mhub. I've merged your thread into this one since there are several members here that are using an NES Classic and can likely help.

Try a different HDMI cable.

@MoPacifica Did you ever find a solution to the lag? I'm experiencing the same thing with my RetroPie micro console. Works well on my home tvs but too laggy to play on my 2018 Pacifica Limited.

No I never really looked into it. I tried it again another time and it was still laggy. I haven't played it since..... I'm always the one driving and I don't feel like rearranging all the seat configurations w/ 3 car seats so that I can play. And my kids are too young to be able to play it anyways.

Just got a 2020 pachy and tried to connect my Xbox one. It was really just about bragging to my friends that I could put my Xbox in my van. But yeah, there was just enough of a time delay between an input in the controller to actually seeing it on the screen that it wasn’t even worth playing. I was really bummed out. This was call of duty so maybe a less demanding game would be fine. Has anyone tried using a wired controller and seen a difference? Or is this system just not meant to handle this kind of gaming?

You think that's bad, try playing a video on your phone using the Bluetooth connection for sound through the vehicle. Even a music player is delayed greatly.
