foxkilla, I finally got my new A970GX yesterday. I have not had a chance to test all features yet, but I like the addition of the editing feature of marking point A and B an then deleting that unlike on my 5055gdl+ . No more splitting and joining!
I will upgrade to the macrovision disabled firmware at some point. Have you had any problems so far? I have had drives failing on all seven of my last liteons, so I expect it to happen on this at some point, but it could prove me wrong - hope so!
I need to replace the dvd drive on my 5055 and am exploring posts to see which would be the best option, if you or anyone have any ideas let me know.
