DVR1600Fend_MU_ZU_Loader_105N.nrg (Nero Image)

Firmware Update for DVR 1600ZU, MU or 1200MU (Front End)

I gave up on this unit... Suppposedly Cyberhome did not purchase DVD recording rights from
Phillips . Lawsuit .. Thus consumers were screwed not to mention Power suppy problems.

FRONT END UPDATE (DVR 1600ZU, DVR 1600MU or DVR 1200MU).

VERY IMPORTANT: There are TWO versions of DVR 1600, this update is for EITHER the DVR-1600ZU or DVR-1600MU or DVR-1200MU and requires two steps 1. Front End and 2. Back End. This is the FRONT END. There is another download for the DVR-1600ZU, DVR-1600MU or DVR-1200MU BACK END on this site. You will need to perform that update after this.
These are .NRG (Nero) image files. This means that these are exact mirror images of the original disc. So, you will need a CD-R/RW writer/burner to transfer these images on to a disc, and Nero CD mastering application. In Nero, you can burn the image to disc by selecting FILE in the Main Menu then "Burn Image to Disc".
Once you are successful in transferring the image to disc, LABEL this disc "Update 1" (LABEL THIS DISC NOW) and follow these instructions:
Loader Update
1. Insert disc "Update 1" into unit.<br>
2. Once the disc loads a question box will appear asking "Do you want to update this loader?" Select yes and press enter.
3. A message box will appear stating "Loader Firmware is being updated." Please wait about 2 minutes and do not turn off the unit during this time.
4. After the update is complete the tray will eject and the message box will state "Update Success." Remove the disc from the tray and power off the unit.
5. Next, power on the unit, press SETUP, select the GENERAL menu and scroll down to USER DEFAULTS. Select yes and press enter to restore the unit to factory defaults.
6. Scroll up to VERSION to verify that the loader firmware has updated.
Look for the BACK END download for the DVR-1600ZU or DVR-1600MU on this same page and follow those instructions.

Hi there
The best bet now the company has gone bust is trawl through the forums to see in anyone has a firmware upgrade saved and available for download. Here is a good start.

What type of power cord is used for a cyberhome dvr 1600 ?


Hello
There is nothing to look onto the power chord of any type of eletronic equipments. Choose a good quality one, with more strands inside its core, that is all. More the strands, the capability of the power chord increases. Look for a good wone which have enough flexiblility to its insulation. Usually MX is the better if you get. IK.

Power cord


Salutations chuckster197,

It might be rather hard to find parts for Cyberhome products as the company as had to close its doors.

There are a few owners forums out there that are are trying to fill in the gaps. You should be able to put "Cyberhome" or "Cyberhome Forum" in a search engine to find these sites.

I hope this helps.

How to reset dvd recorder to ntsc from pal


After checking today to see no one offered any suggestions - I solved the problem the hard way - I went into settings and although the screen rolled, I was finally able to click onto the ntsc setting after about a half hour of tries and once I clicked it, my screen returned to normal -- i was then able to enter the code that made the player an all region player and was happily able to play a pal dvd I received recently. The procedure was simple -- offered by a European Cyberhome user -- the company is in bankruptcy so you cannot gt help from them. Note - my Cyberhome dvr is 1500- not 1600 as you listed it.

Start by checking the DVR format compatibility list, see if the dvd format matches. The check DVR settings for playing features that can be adjusted. Try other DVD's that have worked on your DVR previously.

Cyberhome dvr 1600 problem


The power supply needs improvement.The large capacitors need to be replaced with new ones with a 35 o 50 volts rating instead of 10 volts. Also,maybe some diodes and rectifiers in the power supply needs checking.After the improvement the addition of a small fan to keep the power supply cool is reccomended.
Good Luck!
