Have exactly the same year and model and the same question.  Have tried connecting mp3 player and then android phone via the outlets in the front armrest but not a squeak!  I think the problem is that the music player remains in whatever mode (disc,radio,etc.) is already set and I have not discovered a way to switch the mode/input...

From the LS600h (2008) owners manual, (page 341) you just need to hit the DISC/Aux button twice to select the Aux option.
If that does not work, then you either have a problem with the cables you are connecting to the Aux input, or else your system is broken.
You need a cable that connects to your phone (or other media player) and on the other end has the 2 audio connectors (stereo left & right).

Just tried pressing the DISC (mine doesn't have a DISC/AUX button) twice (various kinds of 2 presses) but just works the disc (hence disc button!)...  The cable ends in a red and white connectors and have matched these to the car white and red ..

Can you post a pic of your audio head unit?
If the head unit does not have an Aux on the button, it may not have been installed on your system.
It could be that the Aux input was an option that wasn't selected by whoever bought your LS new.
Either that or else it wasn't implemented on the early ones even though the connectors are there.

For the RCA connectors, the white is Left channel audio, Red is right channel audio, and Yellow is video.

Finally, if yours has the MiniDisc player under the CD (and the MD button) then the Aux in is not connected for your vehicle as the MD is using that input to the stereo, as per below.

Thank you.  What is puzzling is why does it have the outlets/plug-in points for the aux... I also miss the cassette player that was standard on  my Ls400 and Ls430 but then I just miss those two cars for everything else they had and which the LS600 doesn't have.

My '06 LS460 also has the video inputs in the armrest - I think they were replaced by the AUX input in 2008.

I had a play with mine earlier, using a 3.5mm to red & white RCA plug adapter plugged into the headphone socket on my phone, and then playing an mp3. I thought that just selecting "Video" as the source on the rear controls would then just play the audio from the phone.

Wrong! Nothing happened at all.

Just had a thought though - maybe it only comes out of the headphones?

Anyway, I use a Bluetooth adapter now, because even if you did get the video input to work I think you'd have to sit in the back seat to control it!
