Can anyone share some pics of the DVD console on the RES model. I have seen lots of pictures of the screen, but none of the in-dash DVD. Can you play CDs when the DVD is playing and the headphones are being used. All I can find out from other web sites is the FM tuner can be used, but if it is the same laser optics makes sense you can't play CDs and watch DVDs.

TIA

The DVD drive for a RES unit is mounted well below the dashboard, perhaps 12 inches from the floor, taking the place of a pair of cupholders. Very unexciting. A slot and an eject button.

You may find some pictures at www.hondanews.com.

The head unit has its own CD slot. I believe you can play DVDs and CDs at once. There is another topic around here somewhere that goes into detail on this.

I was reading the online manual and it says that front and rear passenger can listen to different sound sources (tape, radio, CD, DVD). The DVD player can play CDs so you could have two different CDs playing in the van.

The DVD drive is separate from the main unit, and the main unit has it's own CD, so you can listen to a CD over the speakers, while playing another CD in the DVD drive through the headsets.

Thanks for the replies. This is great. I was afraid that the DVD/CD player in the RES were one in-dash unit, not two separate players. I am glad that it is two players.

Now my wife and I will not have to fight over what CDs to listen to on those long trips. I can just recline back into the captain's chair in the second row and put on "Braveheart" or "Gladiator"! (When my EX-L RES arrives that is!)

Thanks again for the posts.

One other question on this... can you add the rear (in this case underseat) CD changer to the RES Odyssey?

The Canadian dealer I talked to did not know. I did notice that it does not show as an option on the US Honda site for that model.

Cheers... Gary

Pretty sure you can. There isn't anything under the front seats, like the NAV unit.
