It's hard code into the head unit...pulling the dam battery cables aren't going to do you any good.. you need to bring the HU to an authorize kenwood dealer so they can reset it for you.

That makes two of us. I have been looking for some time now. Seems you can get hideaway (brain) units for many other models but not kvt-815.

What type of dvd used for player

Only a thought but not all DVD players recognise movies on recordable DVDs only original movie DVDs. This is more noticeable on brand players such as Sony.
The cheap models seem to recognise all regions, formats and DVD types.

A brain is required period. The only way to use the head unit is to have the brain. I have 3 complete 815 setups in my vehicles and they all work flawless. A brain is required. Should you want to sell your head unit, let me know

You might have bought a stolen one. I was installing a sub in my car and unplugged mine and it required a pass code, which i forgot for a while, but luckily remembered. I called about getting it reset and they said I had to bring it in to a official Kenwood ceter in order to get it reset. I would just suggest to call Kenwood. Also, i'm currently looking for a new one because mine was stolen again, so hopefully the person who stole it is having a problem installing it in there car. good luck.
