Just got the LVW-5006 from Radio shack for 200 few days ago. Easy to setup and easy to use.
I did the firmware upgrade with the hacks and everything works fine.
My problem is that I have noticed some flickering horizontal lines from time to time when recording from any device (DV camera IEEE, VCR, Direct TV, other DVD player). Also, sometimes when the screen is dark, there is green hue around the edges. The thing this dose not happen all the time, just from time to time.
I have see few post about this. What is the remedy? This unit have a manufacture date of 11-04.
I still have 20 + days to return it. Any other models or brands that work decent with no problems and that can be made Macrovison and region free?
BTW, I have updated the firmware only. There was another download for the drive but did not do that yet, what is it for?
