Thanks. I had MDX to the dealership on Wednesday. They feel that there should be one disk for Canadian market MDX and one for USA market MDX. They think I was shipped the wrong one from Navteq. I contacted Navteq. by email yesterday. We will see what they come back with.
My thought is that the Acura engineers "forgot" about the differences between the vehicles in the US and Canadian markets and there isn't a different disk for Canadian customers. I went to the order site via both US Acura site and Canadian Acura site. Both showed the same version disk ( 2011 Green DVD Map Update v8.000.0). I am not holding out for much hope on this.
I'll keep everyone informed.

Navteq says that they have only one update disk for the 2010 MDX regardless of the market ( US or Canada). Back to Acura next week !!
#170 of 195 2011 HDD can't record Surround Sound
Feb 21, 2011 (3:39 pm)
Just purchases a 2011 Tech MDX. (up from a 2003) Drives and handles like a dream. Bought some DVD audio CDs and they sound great BUT the HDD can't record them. (or apparently any other multi-channel) Just as the owners manual says on p248. So I have a fantastic sound system and to make full use of the sound quality I have to change the CDs manually, one at a time. Is this nuts or what?

newpilgrim, the DVD-Audio disks are not CD's and you are right the HDD will only record CD's. Even then when they do record it will be lower quality audio than the original CD, more or less MP3 quality. This of course allows the hard disk to accommodate more music; in fact it will fit thousands of songs.
Well recorded DVD-Audio disks sound many times better than the recorded HDD compressed tracks. The problem of course is finding DVD-A disks of artists that you enjoy listening to, as the format unfortunately has been dropped and the price of many of the best disks has skyrocketed. Fortunately I started to buy them when there was a much larger selection readily available at very affordable prices, way before I purchased my MDX. Too bad the format (just like SACD) never really caught on with the masses. Blu-ray discs have the same audio quality potential as DVD-A but there are very few audio-only blu-rays available and of course automobiles don't play those disks anyway (at least none that I am aware of).
Yes it is too bad you cannot record DVD-Audio disks onto the hard drive (HDD) but even if you could the music would likely be compressed (just like CD's) which would totally defeat the purpose.

Acura Tech dept. has acknowledged a problem with the discs for Canadian MDX's. They say have seen this problem in some others. They say there isn't anything they can do at this time but will provide me with a new disc when the updates come out next fall.

Acura Tech shipped me a USB stick that corrected the problem with the Climate control voice commands. I noticed that they pulled the update disc from Navteq site for Canada and it can no longer be ordered here.

The 2012 update disc will be available in January and I would expect it will be correct this time without all the problems of the 2011 update.
