I have a Pioneer DVR-111, and I find that, while it is very fast at reading Video DVDs, it makes an awful lot of noise, which is painful. I resort to ripping each DVD before viewing it, but this is awkward and time-consuming.
I’ve searched (particularly on the forums) for ways to reduce the read speed. My findings so far are:
- The DVR 111 does not honor any of the MMC read speed commands;
- The firmware is supposed to adjust itself automatically so there is no “quiet drive” utility;
- Previous Pioneer specific commands to set the quiet/performance mode on x06 models do not work on the 111.
I’m at loss: Is there a way to reduce the read speed on a DVR 111 ?
Note that I am not using Windows so I cannot resort to any Windows-specific utility unless it will permanently fix the problem (such as a firmware update).
Many thanks in advance !
