I hooked up my new LVW-5005 last night, with the recorder in-between a VCR and TV. The VCR plays thru to the TV, but I can't get the LiteOn to go into the "Setup" mode from the remote. The remote seems to work (ON/OFF, disc tray open/close buttons work), but no way to get into the programming features.
There doesn't seem to be a signal coming from the LiteOn to my TV, although I have tried several combinations of connections and even 2 TVs, scrolling through the entire channel range. I have tried it with and without the VCR connected.
There is a "mode" button on the front that scrolls through inputs (I think), such as "AN1", "AN2", "CH3", etc. - not sure if any of these have an affect on output, but i have tried them all.
I am perplexed.
I bought the machine at newegg.com, which has a sucky return policy (they won't accept a return at all, even though it arrived DOA - I have to go through LiteOn for the warranty).
Thanks - any help is appreciated !
