The Receiver also is required to play DVDs. The receiver is a small maybe 2 by 2 inches black square. Where does it go? It plugs into any controller port. What does it do? The Receiver activates the DVD compatibility. How does it work? Plug the Receiver into a slot while the Xbox console is turned off. Insert a DVD into the drive and the movie will automatically boot up like a normal DVD player. The kit also comes with a simple instruction booklet.
The kit comes with the Xbox DVD Remote. The remote has the basic buttons; play, fast forward, rewind, play, stop, pause, up, down, left, right, select, 0-9, & menu. The remote also comes with some extras like 2x 4x, 6x, 8x, 16x, &32x Fast Forward and Rewind. It has a nice Zoom feature ranging from 2x, 4x, 6x, 8x, & 10x. A - B feature is also nice to have for repetitions of a scene, click A - B once for the beginning of the scene to repeat and push it one more time to end the scene, it will keep repeating until you press A - B again. 2 AAA batteries are required to be purchased separately. The range of the Remote is around 20 to 25ft.
YES. This kit is great even if you already have a DVD player and want another. The Remote kit also doubles as a Audio player, you can use it to playback your Mp3 files on the hard drive, no messing with cords. Remember, you mainly purchased your Xbox for gaming and the DVD playback was just an extra, a great extra at that. This Microsoft DVD kit is definitely High Quality all the way, and that�s why I recommend this product.
I guess my issue is bigger than i thought because i started this from scratch. Would it have been better to use and existing XboxDVD Class from my Inventory 4 projects. Here is the code for Inventory 4 XboxDVD Classes :
