Yes, BCD is having a Black Friday Weekend Sale!  We build commercial, industrial, and military video recorders.  We're not really a consumer company. 
But we got so caught up in all the Black Friday sales excitement that we decided to have one ourselves!  November 24 through Nov 27, 2017 only.

Press the "Menu" button, then Left Arrow once, followed by the "Enter" button.

The video is SD (Standard Definition) so it plays through all the outputs: Composite, Component, and HDMI.
