Just placed an order for LITE-ON 5005 here in Australia so I hope there will be hacks for whatever serial number model I will be receiving.
My only querie is with the 3HR recording mode.
Does one get the same quality as in 2HR mode?
My previous cheapo-elbrando Tevion that died on me after 6 months had acceptable quality in 2HR mode compared to the 1HR, the difference in quality was in fast moving scenes and sometimes that also depended on media quality.
However sometimes it will do OK with the media that did the blotch before.
My comparason is concluded from recording the Simpsons episodes.
I notice in the begin of the series when Lisa gets her Sax and leaves the room.
Hope all that info didnt bore the sox off, its my only real world comparason and was not sure why the same media in the same quality mode will do the blotch on occasion and not on the other.
Anyways, is the 3HR mode like a 2HR on 5005?
