Heritage Glen DVD player question

Our W&P has a use port on the right side bottom. Ours is a brand "Furrion". It has a removable face that then allows us to play DVD's. I suggest you google the name brand of the radio for a user manual to remove all doubt.

OK, finally had time to sit down at the computer and look into the details. Dang it... I have the 5070 without bluetooth. I can't say I'm too heartbroken. My $100 Bose Soundlink Color Speaker is portable and sounds superior to the audio system in my TT. Thanks for all the help guys.

OK...other than a complete upgrade to a different brand model radio/dvd player... my thoughts for how to best do what you want are to:
1. Buy a Blue Ray player and a small 12V inverter to power it. It should have USB capability and HDMI output which you can run to your Jensen TV directly for an excellent picture.
2. The player should also have R+L audio RCA jack outputs so you can run an audio cable to the inputs on the back of your radio for better sound than the TV can give.
3. Finally...your crappy sound has much more to do with your crappy speakers (welcome to the club!) and the best single improvement you can make is to replace the existing ones with decent ones from a reputable speaker company. (between 50-$100 will be fine)

...or just live with what you've got...

Well...I am not familiar with your set up so don't know which el cheapos FR installed and what kind of space you have both in depth and on the surface. I just replaced mine last weekend and planned to do a more extensive post on the process for other G'town owners but I did make a flickr album on it which I think you can access for some ideas.

Note there is text at the top of the screen that you can click on and scroll through for my thoughts on the process & products.
Dunno if it will work for you but if not, I can give you other suggestions if you can link to a pix of what you have in the TT now.

Regarding the ability to play digital copies of movies, I'm eyeing these two players on Amazon. Both can play movies in a variety of formats off of SD cards and flash drives.

Both support ANALOG audio output as well as HDMI to the TV so both will work well for you. Assuming your not an Apple guy...Looks to me like the Zen is the superior and more future ready model for a couple of bucks more. I learned something new tonite...Thanks!
