"I Have Found The Answer To The Video Quality Problem!"4.5 starson by prn1qa
Pros: Awesome 7 inch screen, great resolution quality, amazing hard drive sizes, beautiful built in speakers, and really good customer support.
Cons: Little big (but what do you expect with a 7 inch screen), no memory slots, and a little pricey (but worth it).
Summary: Thought the rest of these reviews say a lot of mediocre things about the AV700, I’m here to straighten things out. First off, the customer service isn't bad at all. I went to their site, got the US phone #, and called. My call was answered in about 5 minutes, by a great guy, who was very helpful. I asked about the video quality, and why it wasn't that good. What people haven’t figured out is that there is a way to change it. Here it is.
Go to video quarter - got to settings - click set up action icon - it gives you a list of parameters - here are the things to change
1. For TV Quality - change bit rate to 1500
For DVD Quality - change bit rate to 2000
2. If you are planning on using the built in
screen the most set to LCD
If you are planning on using it on an
external TV the most set to TV
3. Record with S-video cord
4. To up the sound quality change to 48
* Obviously this will give you less overall video time, but I think it is worth it for the quality. I also recommend getting the 100 gb, if you can afford it, if making these changes.
And that’s it. Hope this helps everyone’s trouble, and that it clears up some stuff.
