Max, In researching possible mods to the 1492s in my W140 chassis cars, I looked at the CD changer inputs and determined that they cannot be used for auxiliary inputs. This is due to the need for a signal to be coming back from the changer for the changer input to be active. It’s not something you can “fake”, either.
I believe the Becker folks do it by connecting to the tape head on the cassette player section in order to get it to work.
