Re: alpine dve-5207 & tmx-r705

Hi Allan,

To my understanding, both are inter-compatible to either NTSC or PAL.; the player will auto detect what format the disc is and auto-switch over. As the manual says, "DVE-5207 automatically changes the video output signal (NTSC or PAL), according to the disc." On the other hand, the TMX-R705 needs manual settings (2 ways):
1. NTSC and PAL can be directly switched when the DISP on the TMX-R705 remote button is pressed for at least 2 seconds; or
2. On the TMX-R705 remote, press the SETUP button, press the DOWN or UP button within 10 seconds and select AUX 1 SIG. or AUX 2 SIG., press the LEFT or RIGHT button within 10 seconds to set the selection.

Just an after thought, pls verify that your DVD Region number is either 2 or ALL. Additionally, you can verify the color format the unit is using (as well as the disc) by pressing DISPLAY during playback on the player.

Should this not be corrective, perhaps you need to check the grounding/wiring and the interconnections cables.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

I have plugged my PSP into the Game Port using a composite cable. I receive sound, however there is no picture on the AV2.

It is 1 of three things. The video output on the psp is bad the input on the alpine is bad or the cable itself is bad. Try plugging the psp into your tv at home. That will tell you if it is the unit or cable. if it works in your house its your alpine video unit

Alpine IVA-D310-navigation option?

The nav feature is purchased separatly with the deck, the previous owner did not purchase it because at the time alpine was charging an extra $1000 on top of the price of the deck to add nav. This is due to the fact that alpine decided to use there own reasearch and development team to design a nav system where as kenwood baught the rights to use garmin's technology and put there name on it which they only charge $400 on top of the price of head unit to add nav.
