DVD player through radio

Hey guys.
I have a 04 mdx doesn't have nav just the 6 stacker.
I am wondering how do I get the DVD player on the roof to go through the stereo? I know there is a switch in the glove box but I am unsure what to do on the radio.
Cheers

Just select the DVD as the source for the front. What switch is in the glove box? The DVD player is in the dash, right? You don't feed the dvd into the overhead unit, do you?

Yeah it is over hear.we dint have the navi.its just a fm transmitter so the roofmount dvd player can port audio through the stereo.

I have actually noticed a few different things between the US and AU models. Our aux input for the dvd player is velow the aircon controls for the 2nd row but there isnt any in the 3rd row.
