    2019 Discovery SDV6 HSE Lux Santorini Black

    DVD

    Hi all , we have a 68 plate D5 sd6 lux with rear media as I had a bit of spare time I thought I would try the DVD. Car will play normal DVD`s but not blue ray. Am I missing something as I find it hard to believe that a 68 plate car wouldn’t play blue ray. Owners man isn’t that clear blue ray is mentioned on the license.

    Regards Ian

    It wont play Blue Ray discs, let alone copied DVDs or copied CDs.

    Just plays original standard DVDs and CDs

    However am not sure if the MY2019 onwards will play them, but no doubt a software update may enable playability.

    Have you tried ripping a Blue Ray onto a USB or portable hard drive, and tried playing through the USB or HDMI connections ?

    Just an afterthought.

    I believe the front screen and rears are HD, as i can received HD tv channels on all of them as well as SD channels.

    For a blue ray 4k dvd, the screens would have to be 4k compatible, so as too get the best picture. This would be pretty expensive i assume.

    Blue ray also uses a blue laser to read the discs. Normal dvds use a red laser, so i am pretty sure unless the unit has the blue laser, which it doesnt, a software update wont be of any use. Something to do with the wavelengths apparently.

    I can use normal dvds on my blue ray player as they get upscaled to a better picture quality, but obviously blue ray wont work on my normal dvd player, so i assume the car has a red laser, hence wont play blueray discs.
