I just got the JVC-SA600, but my receiver has only

digital in and analog L/R in. Is there a "service menu"

that I can force the JVC-SA600 NOT to read the DVD-A

and thus play them as a DVD-V and use the optical line

for now?

I own a JVC XVS500BK yes there is a remote

acessable Service Menu, but why do that?

Some DVD-A discs may contain a picture or two if carried it will display the pictures on the disc otherwise it will play only music. It's like a CD only in DVD form with uncompressed music. I also own a Toshiba SD-4800 which has DVD-A, what your asking for doesn't make sense.




There are concert DVD discs I own 60,

they will show the concert plus provide the music being played. I have Rock N Roll, Country and Western, Concerts for causes. There are classical, Jazz, what ever turns you on to purchase; my Region 1 collection stands at 1,134 and 60 in Regions 2 & 4 the JVC XVS500BK has the all regions ICOS mod for Regions 1-6 :)

I want to be able to switch back and forth between the DVD-A and

the DVD-V of the DVD-A disc.

Until I get a new receiver, I am only getting the better sound of the

DVD-A into my analog L/R, I am missing out on the better analog

center, sub and rear L/R. That is why I want to fall back to the DVD-V

version sound mix and use the digital line.

I do agree that when I leave it as a DVD-A, I now see the bonus

material, like the documentary on the Buena Vista Social Club disc

that I would not see if it plays as a DVD-V.

If I can switch the player, I can watch the bonus material in DVD-A mode

and play the music (at a lower quality) in DVD-V mode.

The BEST solution is to get a better recevier, but my Christmas present

was just a player for now.

So, how can I get to a service menu?

I think since the player has been modified for all regions (the ICOS mod),

it may be harder to get to a service menu?


Any help?

Thanks

Well I have come up with some info:

With the JVC XV-SA600BK I first unplug the unit

then hold down the play and stop button on the unit

at the same time and plug the unit back in.

The unit lights up with the words "TEST JC" on the unit

and the TV displays the JVC logo, but in the upper left

hand it also shows JC(USA, Canada)

When I press the CHOICE button on the remote

several times the unit displays the following info


45 2681


00201432


(then all of the indicators light up, like a test to see if everything displays)


CHECK


EXPERT


TEST JC


and then it repeats the 45 2681, etc.


if I press the ENTER button on the remote when in EXPERT

I get the following display on the unit


MJMO DE00


I can press the UP or DOWN button and change the diplay to say

MJMO DE00

MJMO DE10

MJMO DE0F

MJMO DE0E

MJMO DE0D

MJMO DE0C

MJMO DE0B

MJMO DE0A


(I think this might be related to region, but I am flying blind

so I am VERY worried about what to press)

(Travel at your own RISK!)


It would be great if I could get the info on the expert menu options.


Any help would be great.

Each DVD player has 2 service menus, a testing menu where you can run tests to see if all is operating correctly. Then there is the one that you can make ajustments. I am deliberatly hiding that one from you, you don't know enough about the geometrical balance of colors alone and would ruin your player.




I did this once in my Sony changer and got 2 discs stuck in the center and had to destroy one to get them both out, I know better now. If you can't even afford a receiver how are you going to *feel* if I give you the knowledge and you mess this player up so much, that you destroy the player?




I am not bragging to you but I have over $53,000 into my Home Theater! I own 1,132 Region 1 discs at $25 each plus shipping, just taking 1,000 times $25= $25,000 + shipping for plastic. I am the one that can order a **** load of speakers, a receiver and Dolby Decoder and think nothing of it.




I prefer to listen with Sennheiser 5 sounds from low impedance headphones, I use Denon top of the line AHD-750 with 30 Ohm impedance headphones that go for $175 plus shipping. I don't have a receiver by choice. If you can't even afford a stereo, don't play around trying top get you DVD-A to DVD video or you won't have a nice christmas at all!
