Re: New 5005X and 5005XS from Liteon
The 5005X is the leftover stock of iLO DVDR04's. They are the same box so the firmware for it is different than the 5005. You will have to wait until they post a 5005X firmware update before you can remove the MV out of it. Unfortunately all the iLO's had the MV problem. It would improperly think the signal from slightly bad VHS tapes were MV protected and stop recording in the middle. That's what she means by stops after 30 minutes. The system will put up a flag saying the content is copy protected and automatically stop the recording even if the content is really a home movie that is not copy protected and has no MV!!!!! This is why all of us unfortunate DVDR04 owners went through all the trouble of reverse engineering the LiteOn No MV hacks and then figuring out how to apply them to the DVDR04 (The DVDR04 had one extra checksum that had to be patched than the orgininal Liteon 5001 hacks). Now we can transfer our home movies properly (and dub MV protected content if we so chose to do, though I think most people would opt for just ripping the DVD than having a low quality 2 channel dub). Mr. Wizard just took the information we discovered and created his program that auto patches a bunch of different firmwares.
