Question about Kenwood KVT-617DVD Car DVD Player
I can't change the background image on my KVT 719. I loaded several .jpg images on my Iriver and when I plug it into the Kenwood unit it recognizes the folders containing audio files and shows the folder containing .jpg images but the folder containing the .jpg images is not selectable - it's just a ghost image on the screen.
Any ideas what I'm going wrong?
By going into tuner before entering user set up it seems to have fixed the issue with changing the background. thnks !

I go to the SOURCE and use STANDBY then go to SETUP and choose USER INTERFACE from there you should have the option to hit the CHANGE button and it will direct you to where you have your picture files saved. You can only store 3 pictures to the Kenwood DVD players memory so choose wisely or you can also just keep taking them from the MEMORY option which will use your USB device. Took me a while to figure it out, a complete pain in the ***. Now I am trying to figure out how to play my AVI files from USB... Any suggestions?

Guys, the solution is to go to system set up, and there go to background First, you have to load the file to the kenwood memory and aftear that, you'll see it in the screen as a posibility to use it in the background.

All you need to do is save the pic's on a usb memeory stick and plug in to your usb extension on the kenwood. Make sure that you have selected Tuner as a source, go into user interface screen and proceed as instructed in the manual. Solution 1 is the way fwd as it worked for me. You can not load pic's/images from CD.

I just purchased the KVT719DVD. I found that I must first go to "Tuner" then once there proceed to the user interface screen. After that, the button no longer appear greyed out and you can load your images.

This is not really a solution, but it is more data for you to consider:
I recently installed a Kenwood DDX512 in my car and have been experiencing a nearly identical problem.
I attempted to view some jpg images on a USB flashdrive, and potentially upload one as the wallpaper, but when I plugged the device in it gave me the message: "no media file". Next, I tried the same USB device with a few mp3s added to it, and the unit recognizes and plays the mp3s but still no sign of the pictures. I've also burned a couple of CDs in the proper format (ISO 9660 Level 1 - Joliet) according to Kenwood's specifications, and I still get the same result. Regardless of what source I am using, music and video files will load but images are simply not recognized by the unit.
As far as I can tell, the unit will recognize everything it is supposed to recognize except for image files. When I contacted Kenwood's technical support and explained the situation, they indicated that it sounds like a software bug and the unit would have to be shipped to one of their authorized service centers for repair. :-( I'm under the impression that this is probably an issue with a whole batch of their multimedia players, because the demonstration unit at the Best Buy where I purchased my player appears to have the same bug as you and I have.
I'm wondering if this does turn out to be a widespread firmware problem, will they actually offer a recall to repair/upgrade the affected units? Or will the consumers be stuck paying shipping fees and waiting a few weeks while the units get repaired?
