As it has a TV button it will be the Comand type DX and disc available from Tele Atlas or comand on line .

If it say No TV when you press the button the no tuner is fitted

You can trick the Comand 2 with an interface circa £100 to enable the DVD,, but you never get it activated for use in the front when the car is moving.

where can you get the interface circa from ? will that enable you to put dvd disks directly in to the player ?

No it will not,,it just enables you to put a standard video input into the Comand,, so you would still need a DVD player, there could be 3.5mm jack in the glove box for an ipod for use in AUX

It is only the wide screen comands mid 94 that can play DVD,s as the mapping is DVD based. the Comand 2 is CD based

I havent even checked the glovebox :p..im going to have a good look tomorow, The standard sterio's look really nice, got the built in sat nav etc, i had the windows done recently, (privacy glass) and when they took the door cards out, it had a really nice set of upgraded componet speakers, i dont really want to change the sterio, could i amp them up using the orriginal sterio?.. as at the moment its not very loud!

The original speakers are a very low impedance around 1 ohm.
No after market speaker has an impedance so low and the chances are it will be 4 ohms. this effectively cuts the power output down by 75%.

The answer will be to insert an amp from the Comands output
