I hav just ordered a Liteon 5045. It will arrive tomorrow CANT WAIT !!!

I have a few questions…

  1. Can I upgrade the hard drive? ( I know 160Gb is plenty but these are the kind of things we need to know - Im sure you all understand)

  2. Whats the multiregion hack (I only have region 2 disks but its the thought that counts)

  3. can it be connected to a PC? I see theres a DV link thingy… does it act like usb or something ?

Thanks in advance, Im sure the multiregion hack will be the same as the other units 5005 etc.

Just bought one of these myself, and although I cannot answer any of the original posters questions, I do have some general comments on the unit.

for £350, it’s a great bit of kit, with ample space on the HDD (160GB), and the capability of writing stuff out from HDD to DVDR(w) (+or-)

Pro’s: loads of space, menus are a breeze to use, with some very handy wizards for doing common tasks.

Cons: Remote control is very cheap quality, and a real let down, for the sake of a few ££ more manufacturing costs. Does not play or record MPEG4 (XVid/DivX)

Anyone know if I can connect the Firewire port on the front, and get files from the HDD down to my PC? That would be neat…
