Glad to help! Although investigating this on my own car for you led me to discover that video is no longer working on my car! I tried multiple phones and multiple cradles, and still never got video (every other cradle function works fine though), but when I took my cradle and my phone and plugged it into another BMW Apps-equipped car, it worked fine.

The dealer is going to update my CIC software (at the very least it should fix a Pandora bug I've found that doesn't appear on newer cars) but I doubt that will fix it since this worked when I first got my car. The only other possible culprit is my rear view camera, which uses a plug-and-play harness to intercept CIC traffic. I'm not sure that's the cause and honestly I haven't even looked at video since I picked my car up so I have no idea how long this has been broken, but I emailed ModMyNav to see whether they have any ideas. Ah well, as I said I don't really use the video feature so at this point it's just the principle of something being broken and not knowing why.
