Default Mercedes Video/DVD ????

On the 2004 Mecedes E320 with the navigation option there is suppose to be a code you can punch in so you can watch DVD's on the navigation screen??? Anyone know of this? The dealer told me they by law were not able to tell me the code for liability reasons. Thanks, Dave

6. Can the new DVD Navigation System play DVD movies too?
The COMAND DVD Navigation System is capable of playing DVD movies. The US version is not.
It seems that AMG also offers a DVD changer as a special order item for direct install in Affalterbach only (only certain countries, not US).
TFT monitors are available for the rear compartment too as a special order item from the AMG Manufaktur (only certain countries, not US).

7. Can the DVD Navigation System be retrofitted?
Apparently, the DVD Navigation System can be easily retrofitted on all APS 50 equipped cars, at least those built in the past.
Retrofit takes around a day and requires qualified and trained personel to do the retrofit due to possible problems with the CAN/MOST bus on the E55. Special retrofit kits are available for dealers from DC.
In the US, a COMAND retrofit is not possible due to a different hardware.
Almost 2000 US E-class customers who ordered the COMAND retrofit get a new car with COMAND instead (more details at US dealers)

The Navigation will play the DVD and you can hear the sound but not see anything. As Wardey stated, there is a way around. Gotta be an OSO like Forum for Mercedes.

There is go to www.benzworld.org there is currently a debate about how to do this, you are going to have to at the minimum hook up star diagnostics and change a setting within it. The nav system is tied into the fiber ring in the car.

Can you be more specific as to where on that site this information is?
