Question about Philips DVDR520H DVD Player/HDD
We have recently moved to the USA from New Zealand - our Philips DVDR 520H has multi region capability but when set up the picture continues to roll. We have tried a few things. Can anyone help please?
If you download the latest firmware and replace the built-in hard drive with a newer SEAGATE Hard Drive, your recorder will function much better and the remote control will also function more effectively (as the manucfacturers hard drive slows the whole system down for some reason). I just swapped out my PC hard drive with the one in the Philipis DVDR520H and my computer is still working great and the hard drive recorder is working 100% better. As for the PAL.NTSC issue (rolling picturE), just download the philips DVDR520H/37 (american version) firmware, for your overseas player and that will set your player to NTSC.... then you can use the remote control hack to make it multi-region again. If you need more help, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or view my webpages http://www.myspace.com/richardaevans Welcome to the USA (I am originally from the UK).... life is much harder here in the USA and the salary's are much lower than what I am used to.. it is a very difficult adjustment.

If you are using an American TV, then it's because your DVD player is set to PAL. Set the DVD player to NTSC and all should be good. peace. p.d.
