The following post may be more appropriate in the Lite-On forum, however since it refers to the previous posts, I am posting it here. :flower:
Moderator please move it if it should be in the other forum.
Another question which has occured to me in viewing this correlation of drive calibration and jitter levels is "What exactly is the difference between HyperTuning and Online HyperTuning?"
"Online Hyper Tuning - To let drive check the write quality during recording and modify the writing strategy real-time in order to get better writing quality. It may take more time for the recording if you enable this feature."
"Online Hyper Tuning (similar to WOPC) recalibrates the laser power during the burn to achieve higher quality.
Hyper Tuning (similar to Solidburn) just selects the best write strategy for a specific media type."
"Not just laser power but also write strategy."
I assume Wind's answer only referred to chok0's comment on OHT. It would have been most helpful if Wind had commented on Hyper Tuning as well.
chok0's description of Hyper Tuning sounds more like SmartBurn Only to me, am I wrong? I base my thinking on the screenshot of the SmartBurn Description in post #104 of the DVDScan thread, which says,
"Once the Media Manufacturer is identified by the program, it means LITE-ON CD-RW drive will use dedicated writing strategy and running optimal power calibration to secure the burning quality."
I thought if only Force HyperTuning is checked(not OHT) it meant,
"the drive checks the write quality for all media during recording and saves that information for the following burns" to differentiate it from OHT.
In the above graphs, only one post using the LH-20A1P 487C has Online Hyper Tuning checked, post# 5.
It appears to me from the above graphs that HyperTuning(not OHT) is modifying jitter levels real-time NOT simply saving the OPC information to EEPROM for use on future burns.
Could it possibly mean that both HyperTuning and OHT modify writing stategy real-time but OHT does not save the OPC information to EEPROM? Or is Hyper Tuning's effect on Jitter unintended? Or has my unit been "confused" by the SmartBurn utility?
Lite-On's "What is Hyper Tuning" window in the SmartBurn utility does little explain what Hyper Tuning and Online Hyper Tuning do differently(particularly when several times the double and triple calibrations have occured on good media with Force HT checked and OHT unchecked.)
If Hyper Tuning and Online Hyper Tuning are the same thing, then why create two different terms and confound some Lite-On owners?
