Perfect for use with a 1080p HDCP monitor. If you want to use the hidden features then you might want to wait until more people have these, there is little online about them.

This item is great, HDMI output, DVD upconversion, excelent quality for the price. This can be set to region free using some codes found online to show some hidden menus

Programs my directv box and the recorder to record the show when I'm not home. The DVD player has to be off to record timed shows, if you have the unit on it will not record your show. I connected this to my dell monitor through a DVI to HDMI cable and...

I'm about to order another one to upgrade my picture in my studio,

I don't need to upgrade my satellite to HD if I use this as a tuner and route my signal through it. The picture quality is better than my vision can see

Wish it had an optical audio output but the digital is excellent

Plays Everything


Can be flashed and has hidden menus to enable other features.

Fantastic Picture ; 1080i upconversion works wonders on VCD and DVD ; Fast load times - not as fast as old regular DVD players ; Comes with HDMI cable ; Plays scrathed DVDs better than my other players ; Plays most imported DVD without any problems

Need to upgrade firmware on the one I received to get HDMI to work ; No optical digital out. Only Coaxial Digital ; Can not change default screen color (black by default)

Lite-On DD-A500GX


Very easy to use set up and system. Very easy to use to record and play DVDs Excellent picture quality. Good sound quality via a home cinema system.

Sometimes it will not load a DVD first time and the unit has to be switched on and off a few times, which can be annoying. However, good points make up for this problem, for me at least.

HDMI playback of Pre-recorded DVDs

MP4 performance diabolical (sound completely out of sync with picture). HDMI playback of own recordings not as clear as RGB. Takes ages to switch on.

Product Specifications

Designed with HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) output, the DVD recorder offers you hassle-free connection to your HDTV or HD-ready TV set as well as the uncompromised digital video/audio signal transmission for sharper picture and better sound. The built-in video upscaler allows to automatically enhance the source picture resolution to either 720p (Progressive mode) or 1080i (Interlaced), delivering improved, near high-definition image quality. Depending on the compatibility of your HDTV or HD-ready TV-set, you can quickly adjust the output mode via the Setup menu. The integrated easy-to-use timer recording system simplifies the tedious timer recording procedures seen on conventional DVD recorders. With the VCR Plus+ programming system, you can instantly record or schedule recordings of TV shows by entering a set of numbers corresponding to a specific TV program, its broadcast channel and time. Use 'DV Link' to connect a DV camcorder to easily transfer your camcorder footage to a recordable DVD disc. Take advantage of the on-screen 'DV Control' panel as well, which allows you to play back DV footage with the DVD recorder's remote control. Graphical and intuitive, the Easy Guider menu guides you through all the major features available, and helps you to complete basic functions in just a few steps. Simply follow the on-screen instructions to start playback, record a TV show or schedule a timer program. It's never been so easy and fun! With the DVD recorder's built-in TV tuner and versatile connection ports, you can easily record TV or other sources to various DVD discs to build your own video library.
