Help needed on finding a manual for Liteon HD-A740GX DVD recorder

Posted 30th May 2007
I have had a DVD recorder for a while and it broke so Argos replaced it with this model as the old model isnt made anymore.

Problem is I cant play anything NTSC, it just gives me a blurry pic.

On my old model it had a manual switch in setup, for PAL or NTSC(not multi for some reason)

Hmm it lets me play NTSC dvds but anything in the scart input wont work through NTSC

FFS typed a reply then it told me I had to log in, and then invalid thread! I lost my post grrr

Anyway the manual didnt give an answer thanks anyway, it just told me what NTSC and PAL is, no answer

What the problem is, is that the DVD recorder expects a PAL input, and gets a NTSC one so I get part of the screen cut off and blurred.
Have you got the latest firmware for it ?
Heres the link (really this time) to the liteonit website:

If all else fails try contacting their support for advice.
Well how do I update firmware on a DVD recorder that plugs into the TV?

it doesnt say anything about being NTSC compatible, only PAL is mentioned. This is most likely where your problem lies.
Strange if it doesnt as the older model does, and it does output NTSC as my NTSC dvd's work, its NTSC input which is the problem.
