Liteon LVW-5007 has the hiccups.
Need help with Liteon LVW-5007
I bought a Liteon LVW-5007 with a bad drive.
Replaced the drive with a Pioneer DVR-710
16x drive. Label on drive says DVR-111D.
It works great except that there’s a hiccup
in the recording every 4 seconds or so.
The sound cuts out briefly and there’s a pixelation
of the video for a fraction of a second.
The hiccups are always in the same place and show
up the same when the DVD is played in my laptop.
I also copied the DVD to the laptop and played from
hard drive…same problem.
Think that verifies that it’s a record problem.
I’ve tried Memorex 2.4x and 4x DVD+RW media.
Scanning the restultant recorded disks in the PC
indicates no errors. Seems that the drive is
recording what the tuner is sending it.
Don’t have any DVD+R media…but it’s irrelevant
whether they’d work. This is gonna be a time-shifting
machine that has to work with RW media.
The regularity of the hiccup suggests a buffering
problem, but the time seems to be independent of the
recording mode/data rate.
Is this something that can be fixed with a firmware
I googled 'till I’m blue in the tooth and found
little on the 5007. Lots of info about flashing
other liteon drives.
The only 5007 firmware I found was LNKA1040.EA0.
That didn’t help.
WMEA1098.es5 wouldn’t load.
All the liteon firmware links I found are broken.
There’s a bunch of stuff on the puma…archive site,but
no clear indication of what might work on the 5007…
other than the lnka1040.ea0 that I’ve already tried.
Is there anything I can do to make this work?
Don’t need the TV guide. Just need timed recording
so I can time-shift TV.
With a new unit available for $70, it’s not worth
investing any real money in a different DVR drive.
I’m in the USA.
