Yeah. Correct.

Meanwhile, my experiences something weird. Sound goes completely off after 3-5 minutes of play and wont come back up till you turn off and on.

Anyone experienced this or have a way to fix this?

Got a philips hts3357 some discs play some come up no disc

unfortunately Philips DVD players are more precious/ selective on DVDs than the other is true especially with "Copied DVD"..normally an original DVD should not cause such problem..however if your DVD disc itself is not clean ( i.e.finger prints ) the reading LASER sometimes has problem to read it..
I recommend to buy a "wet DVD laser cleaner system" and clean your laser on DVD and your DVD discs as is available any HI-FI store..

Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up

Hello there.

Push "Play/Pause" and "DVD Rec" on the dvd recorder a few seconds to see the service menu. There you can find your firmware version.

Post back the version for us.

Hope this helps.

HD is not HDMI. An HD disc needs an HD DVD player.

Unable to get play dvd or get picture on DVD channell on tv

If the player is doing that for all DVDs but playing CDs properly, the player has gone bad due to either the laser and lens being out of whack or the DVD drive just doesn't recognise DVDs anymore and needs repaired or replaced.

Sorry. Best of luck.

Will not play HD DVDs. & will not record

First off this is not an HD dvd player it is a dvd player that has HD upconversion. secondly if you want to record a cable show you will need to push that into the dvd recorder with the a/v input.

Its not designed to play HD DVDs, the model has HDMI connection in order to connect to latest output devices, viz flats panels and LCD tvs there by having a common audio and video cable. your model has a feature to upscale the normal DVD singal to match the quality output of hull HD TVs, hence the HDMI out put, do not confuse this with HD compatiability.

Go to the link below to check the full specs of your system.

though yours is a high end set, but its not HD disc compatiable.
