    I have (reluctantly) advertised my DVD32R in the for sale forums and I have been asked if I know which door mech I have. Do any of you guys know how I can determine this?

    It has the latest drive mech (S58) and the serial number is: DVD 20105211.

    Any feedback would be much appreciated.

    Well,

    besides asking the helpdesk you can see how it performs:

    The latest doormech really closes fast in doorprofile 1. You hear it hit the end quite loud, and you really get the feeling not to stick your finger between it :). Switching to profile 2, it also closes very well, but much more controlled and smooth. Especiallly after it adapted after a few open/closings.
    If you use doorprofile 2 with the older mech, the door probably doesn't close completely.

    Door modification was done on all our players when sent to Huntigdon. But two different door mechs, no, I do not think so. I think the question was rather if dooor mod was done or not.

    Furthermore, on my player, door behaviour actually got worse after door modification.

    thanks for the replies guys. So if there is a newer door mech then I must have it because mine does indeed close very quickly hitting the end with a loud thud!

    I would also be interested to know how to change the profile?

    The door profile is changed by:

    turn off the DVD32R,
    hold down the buttons display and open/close while turning it back on,
    it will then come up with a prompt, skip- will select A, skip+ will select B.
    (The current profile will be shown in the top left hand corner.)

    We need to get all these special combinations put somewhere for easy access. Does anybody have a full list?

    I meant 'door modification, not doormech'. But I think the idea how to find out was clear.
