I just would like to confirm how these units are connected. Is it true that if it has a monitor that it will only play DVD when it is parked and not when the car is moving.
So does that mean if I just want to listen to the audio part of a DVD concert like the Eagles' Hell Freezes over, will I be able to listen while driving and the video monitor or LCD is retracted to a closed position?
I know there are units that are just in-dash DVD receivers like the Alpine DVA-9860/9861 and the Pioneer DVH-P500MP which has no monitor and will serve my purpose. But again, if I have the monitor, I can choose the audio settings before driving. But is the price difference worth just to do the audio settings...Maybe I can just copy my concert and pre-select the audio settings, but again, will these units play DVD-R?
