I have the LVW 5005 manufactured 2/05, with latest firmware update from Liteon. The unit has been used for 1 week and I have recorded from my VCR with no problems.
But when I record from my two Sony Digital camcorders (one is Digital 8 the other Mini DV) I get a bunch of artifacts and a real bad red tint. I have tried two different firewire cables both brand new.
When I record from the D8 thru the S Video it comes out great and records great. Its just when I go through the firewire link that I get these problems. Also I cannot control the camcorder through the on screen menu on the TV while in DV mode. The recorder sees the DV input. When I press record or even preview the video on the TV its has the artifacts and red tint problem. Viewing from the LCD screen on the camcorder the picture quality is great.
I called Liteon they said call back and ask for second level on Tuesday.
I think I have a bad firewire board on the recorder? Anybody else have this problem?
