Hi there guys
I've extremely at my wits end here.
I've been working on this issue for 4 days now, and I've gotten nowhere.
I have a Sony RDR-HX750, which has been sitting around, gathering dust, due to a lack of a remote control.
After I finally got a remote sorted, I attempted to, and was partially successful in upgrading the HDD, via service disk, and the service remote controller.
The only issue I had, was that when I wiped the device ID, when I reentered the one that was there before, (started with 20008), it said ID NG.
So I modified the original Device key, to something that looked right. Changed it to something like 002082414, and once I had gone through the ID disk, it said rom write okay.
Once it was all done, I can play DVDs, and everything works, but my HDMI port isn't working, and I've been working day in, and day out to try and fix it, to no avail.
Here's some photo of the info, and issues I'm facing. (using AV out, all is fine, but I want HDMI for this model.)
I live in New Zealand, and my device is an Australian model, and I've tried upgrading the firmware, with both Sony, and Pioneer firmware, on each occasion, I get "DISK DWNLD" on my indicator, the briefly "DOWNLOAD 1", then the unit spits the disk out, reinserts it, then gets "POWER OFF", and then nothing, I've tried so many times, with so many different ID numbers, and I'm starting to give up.
Maybe, the firmware issues is, because I'm installing foregin firmware, on my Australian reigon machine.
If there was any way to change the region firmware to UK, or even Europe, I would at the earliest opportunity.
I don't give a damn about loosing Tuner record abilites, as Analogue is dead on this side of the world, and all my recording is coming from an IPTV box connected to my LINE 1 input.
So please, how do I fix this issue?
One last thing to note, the Device ID (Usually on the back of the unit) is nowhere to be seen.
I've gutted the unit, then reassembled it, hoping that it would be somewhere inside, but it's not.
I still have access to the original drive, and would there be any way of attaching it to a PC, and using some kind of software, to try and recover the ID numbers?
