I’ve been happy with my Liteon 5005 for 4 months so I bought the harddrive version for its editing/publishing capability. Had it for 24 hours and it records and acts pretty much like the 5005==very happy. BUT I have tried and retried to edit the commercials out of a two hour movie and after 30 minutes of button pushing I get totally unusable garbled up mess.
It almost seems like the remote control unit rotates the functions of the command keys!!! Commericals I took out are still there. Hiding chapters includes material that wasn’t in the original marked space. Hiding chapters does not document its actions so the only way to check if a button command took effect is to replay the original material–ie, the length of the original clip never changes and no edit marks are put down to show progress.
The software update at the liteon site won’t download==my system just hangs while I can download other unit software and manuals with no problems.
Any 5045 users out there with similar problems and solutions? I “might” keep this unit if the false edit process can be corrected==then I’ll just be careful about recording material that requires heavy editing. This unit just isn’t set up to do that easily. When are these guys going to connect it to the Computer with a USB???-----thanks. bobbo.
