Then I reverted it back one more firmware to be able to upgrade with an original, "unflashfixed" HS0K: slightly better values, but not to an extent to exclude any influence by the media itself (DVD +R 4x Verbatim datalife plus - MCC)
Upgrade to HS0P - still no good values.
Then the "cross"grade to HSG8 - unbelievable, but true: values are much better! Especially at the end of the disc, where the other firmwares used to raise to PI-values like 300/400 starting at the last 20% of the disc, now for 3 test-discs the values do not exceed 50 (one with a small peak to below 100), and that only for the last maybe 5% of the disc.
Can anyone explain this? I can't, since you guys stated believably, that the firmwares are the same except some entries like model-number.... [/B]
Looks like simple save statements.
Dumps variables from registers to ram/cache (well, not quite the same)
Maybe some bright spark at liteon made a mistake, and one of the bright OEM guys picked it up?
Can someone PM me about the file. I'd like to test it.
It seems to work.
My PIPO errors on the burnt discs seem a HELL OF A LOT lower.
About 1/10 for both PI & PO errrors.
I'm gonna go thru and scan previous burns (Liteon original firmwares) to see if maybe just the reading function has been improved in the OEM firmware.
****** Update 2 ******
Litey LDW811 @ HSG8 burns DVD-R well under spec!
Litey LDW811 @ HS0E/HS0K/HS0P sucks shicncters.
Um, why can't I post .png files?
