Replacement Dvd Player

Recommended Posts

I've had my Verso T-Spirit since new for four years and have always found the DVD player which is fitted under the driver's seat a bit of a nuisance when it comes to changing discs.

Is there an alternative solution even perhaps a new player which can be more easily accessed while retaining the headrest monitors.

To be honest I found the DVD player a real pain in the back side !!

If it was me I would have a look at this link and see what the options are

The advantage is they are portable !!

I've already got a portable player and a twin set that clips over the headrests.

For convenience I would prefer being able to use the built in headrest monitors with the headsets as my granddaughters prefer these.

You're right, the DVD player is a pain for long journeys.

I bought an ipod video (80Gb drive) and have loaded films, tv shows onto this. Using a video lead, you can connect it into the AV2 connectors (in the rear storage compartment between the front seats) and voila an on-demand video system that DOESN'T reset when you stop for fuel! It works with the existing screens and IR headphones.

I would agree with the idea of playing video files rather than DVD discs in the car.

I used an MP4 Player with 16 GB of SD card storage (2x8GB). It held plenty of Pink Panther, Tom and Jerry, Charlie and Lola as well as Toy-Story 1& II, Stuart Little, Pippi Longstocking etc..

Advantages: You do not race around with expensive discs, but with backup-copies. The units & storage media are much smaller and use less power.

Disadvantages: Learning curve of ripping your DVD's. Units can currently be expensive or hard to find.

just my 2cents.

Hi

What a brilliant idea, I hate having to change the DVD's in the car, not to mention the power button on my DVD player is a little tempermental.

I have just bought the necessary cables off Amazon for my iPod Video and will go home tonight and start ripping my DVD's. Also most new DVD's come with a digital copy that is easy to transfer to the ipod.

Thanks

Rob
