No DVD/TV option

Hi guys,

I don't seem to have an option for TV or DVD when selecting Entertainment from the iDrive menu, only get the radio channels and CD. How do I get this option up, is there something missing?

Model- 2004 730d Sport comfort pack.

Thanks.

You need to enable the rear entertainment from your iDrive menu.

Thanks for the update.

How do I make this change in iDrive?
I dont have a rear entertainment system in my car as in I dont have any rear screens only my main screen.

Still getting used to all the gadgets and hidden menus in this car

That means you dont have these options fitted in your car thats why you dont have them on the main screen.

Its actually commen sense, if there is no TV or DVD option and there is no TV or DVD module fitted in the trunk (left side where the Sat Nav Drive is located) then you wont have them options on your iDrive.
