The TVMB in the store.

Someone wanna explain how that works to me? I have comand and interested, but i thought only the EURO spec cars could be unlocked to play DVD's.

Another question, I have a COMAND, but no nav, can my COMAND still read dvd's? *For instance if I made a dvd full of mp3's.... which could be close to 8 gigs, or the 250 folder max.*

Thanks in advance, also what happened to the renntech stuff?

I'm not sure about the MP3 DVD question to be honest i think yeah it will play them but the TVMB is for Euro cars only since the US models don't have a decoder and thats hardware that cant be swapped out

The US ones plays sounds but not video, it's US regulation, will not allow DVD's to play in two seaters, but it could be swapped with the euro ones. Dinko did it.

I think you can listen to mp3 dvd's, same with movie dvd's, it has the correct audio codec but not the video codec, so in theory it should work. I have not tried a movie dvd in my SLK but I know for sure that audio plays in other models, eg. S-class, e-class but not video.
