Rolling picture on Philips DVDR 520H

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 [email protected] 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.

DVD Regions Information The DVD region code identifies a DVD's compatibility...

DVD Regions Information

The DVD region code identifies a DVD's compatibility with the players typically sold in a particular region.


Region 0 (or "region free") is compatible with DVD players from any region.

The majority of all current titles play only in one specific region unless otherwise noted. DVDs sold by Amazon.co.uk are encoded for Region 2 or Region 0. Region 2 DVDs may not work on DVD players in other countries.

Region 1 DVDs sold by Marketplace sellers

Region 1 discs are intended for use with standard DVD players in North America (Canada and the USA). In most instances they can also be played on compatible "multi-region" DVD players (also known as "chipped" or "region-free" players).

They also require an NTSC-compatible television. NTSC is the standard picture format in North America, and differs from the PAL format adopted in Britain and Europe. Region 1 DVDs are usually presented in NTSC format, so you should ensure that your TV is capable of reading the NTSC signal before purchasing Region 1 DVDs.

Regional Coding Enhancement (RCE)

Regional Coding Enhancement (RCE) has been added by some film studios (specifically Warner and Columbia) to selected Region 1 DVDs, with the intention of preventing these discs from playing on some multi-region DVD players. We are therefore unable to guarantee that all Region 1 discs will be compatible with all multi-region players.

I recently moved from the US to Australia and brought my Cinego D-1000 with me. Sadly it does not play australian DVDs. how do I change the region? [email protected]

Hi, I have just done a bit of research on this unit, and while I live in new zealand, the australian and new zealand broadcast systems are similar as well as both using region code 4. My experience with american video devices has shown that american manufacturers do not normally produce multisystem devices to be used in other parts of the world and as such would most likely not work with the australian broadcast system never mind region 4 discs. I would strongly suggest you ensure that the unit is capable of dealing with a PAL signal first before you even bother with trying to multizone it. PS the zone coding was created by the american movie consortium and as such, it will be very unlikely you will find a region hack for this unit.
Cheaper to ditch the unit and purchase a local DVD player and projector.
PS you will get a better (albeit slightly duller) picture with a decent LCD projector. I strongly recommend the Panasonic PT-AE700 or later. You will be impressed.
