Product Description

Product Description

No fuss, no muss. This kit is one of the best ways to expand the already superb functionality of the Xbox system. Just plug the infrared receiver into the controller port and use the remote for DVD movie playback. Say goodbye to messy cable knots and weird controllers.

Enables DVD movie playback functionality on the Xbox video game system. Includes a DVD remote control and an infrared receiver that plugs into an Xbox controller port. Note: this item is required for DVD movie playback on Xbox.

5.0 out of 5 stars RCA Compatable November 21, 2001
1) Get this Movie Playback Kit
2) Put the remote away in a drawer (you still need the receiver)
3) Enter the code for an RCA DVD Player into your universal remote
4) Use your universal remote to control your XBox without any custom programming!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gadget Collector February 23, 2002
By Jeff
Pros: Inexpensive & has features that high priced DVD players don't come with.
Cons: Hard to find one.
Overall: Great for Xbox gamers who want a High Quality DVD player for under [item price].
My info:
I bought my Xbox in the beginning of January right after I returned my GameCube console. I purchased the Xbox DVD kit about 2 months after from for [item price]. I already have a DVD player but I wanted this anyway. An actually it plays DVDs better then my regular DVD player. The remote is great in my opinion; it's comfortable, convenient, & filled with features.
What comes in the Kit?
The kit comes with the Xbox DVD Remote. The remote has the basic buttons; play, fast forward, rewind, play, stop, pause, up, down, left, right, select, 0-9, & menu. The remote also comes with some extras like 2x 4x, 6x, 8x, 16x, &32x Fast Forward and Rewind. It has a nice Zoom feature ranging from 2x, 4x, 6x, 8x, & 10x. A - B feature is also nice to have for repetitions of a scene, click A - B once for the beginning of the scene to repeat and push it one more time to end the scene, it will keep repeating until you press A - B again. 2 AAA batteries are required to be purchased separately. The range of the Remote is around 20 to 25ft.
The Receiver also is required to play DVDs. The receiver is a small maybe 2 by 2 inches black square. Where does it go? It plugs into any controller port. What does it do? The Receiver activates the DVD compatibility. How does it work? Plug the Receiver into a slot while the Xbox console is turned off. Insert a DVD into the drive and the movie will automatically boot up like a normal DVD player. The kit also comes with a simple instruction booklet.
So how�s the picture & sound quality...?

Cut MS some slack people. They didn't include DVD functionality via the controllers for some very good reasons:
1) That DVD license is expensive. I'd rather have people who are going to use the XBox as a DVD player to be the ones to subsidise the cost, instead of EVERYONE having to do it, since I already have a DVD player.
2) Sony found out the hard way when they released the PS2 in Japan; a lot of people bought the console JUST for it's DVD playback features, and didn't buy games for it. Now, I'm sure a lot of you know the standard console economic paradigm: lose money on the hardware, make money on the software. Thus, Sony lost big bux when this happened. I can't blame Microsoft for wanting to make sure that doesn't happen with them.
3) This is a PROGRESSIVE SCAN DVD player, which means it's designed for higher quality pictures on HDTV. I don't believe a lot of DVD players on the market are capible of that. Seems like a good deal to me.
I've been suprisingly impressed with the XBox. The graphics are DEFINATELY a cut above the PS2 (which I also own.) I find it telling that the LAUNCH title graphics look better than Sony's latest PS2 games. The hard drive is damn convenient. If there is anything to be angry over, it's those poorly designed controllers (Hint: MadCatz makes a decent replacement.)
In the end, those who are serious about using the Sony as a DVD player are going to buy a remote control kit anyhow (I certainly did) This seems no different to me, in the long and short of it. Microsoft was upfront on the box when they said it required the additional kit. It seems to me that a lot of people giving out the one star are just general Microsoft bashers anyhow.

4.0 out of 5 stars Yup, as plain and functional as they come May 29, 2002
Very functional, makes you feel like your Xbox is complete. As for the playback quality of the Xbox, couldn't tell the difference between it and the Pioneer DVC-302D that it kicked out of the shelf and being deployed to somewhere else within the house. Of course, you have to connect the Xbox to the Advanced AV pack or High Definition pack with an optical audio cable to get full Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS, and S-Video or Component video inputs as well for video. Not too shabby overall, even considering the lack of eject and power buttons that some people are complaining about. Gotta get up from the couch sometimes. Good for blood circulation.
As mentioned by another reviewer, you can program your universal remote control with the codes for RCA DVD players and the Xbox IR receiver will respond to it. The power button on the universal remote still won't work though, because this particular button will be interpreted as the display button on the Xbox remote. Worth noting too, that my universal remote doesn't have an eject button.
A very cool feature that I found out when playing audio CDs: when the info button is pressed, the mood display in the left panel zooms in to fill the full TV screen. Instant 32" lava lamp! Kinda looks like a mood setting screensaver. Break out the candles, turn off the lights, and let Peter Gabriel crank out!
Lastly, any geek worth his remote will test this baby with the games. After all, it seems like some of the buttons in the gamepad are mapped in and have equivalent buttons in the remote, right? I popped in DOA3 and tried to control it through the remote, but alas, geek mojo ran out. The remote control does not function as a wireless gamepad.
