I also have a TruTech TT1620MU1.
I read that you can update the firmware to a Cyberhome.
I would like to convert it to the Cyberhome 1600MU1.
Did anyone find the firmware for this model?
If so, could someone post me a link?
every link that I find for this is dead.
Please Email me if you can help at Jammer7071@aol.com

Reliability turned out to be pretty good for me. Usually on any kind of optical drive, the laser assembly starts getting flaky after a couple of years. Over the last few months, that has been happening - several recordable DVDs would no longer play on this player but would in a PC.

There was also a fault on the power supply that's been making the internal logic go nuts. When the unit was in standby, the PSU would whistle. When powering the unit on, sometimes it would say "Hello" indefinitely. Sometimes the display would remain blank. Plugging the AC power out/in would usually fix this until two days ago, when I pulled the Cyberhome's AC plug out of the wall for the last time. Long may it rest in peace, in a landfill of my garbage disposal company's choice.

I have no need for a DVD-R unit now, since I gave the evil Tyme Werner their DVR box back, saved myself $70 a month and built a MythTV PC recording from OTA terrestrial broadcast TV. There's still more good content than I have time to watch. I might buy an upconverting DVD player or maybe a PS3 mainly to use as blu-ray player. How things have changed since 2005 when the DVR 1600 was in its heyday. Makes me quite nostalgic!

Thanks for the help with the hum, I'm now recording through the line in. I have one of these old DVR 1400s that I inherited from my sister who didn't use it much(which is likely why it still works). Now while it lasts I can enjoy recordings without the hum.


How can I be sure in a world that's constantly changing?
