Hi, I'm new to this forum and hope someone can help.
I just purchased an LVW-5006. The connections I'm using are S-Video and RCA-audio cables from my cable box (Scientific Atlanta Explorer 8000 provided by Time Warner Cable) into the 5006, and the same kinds of cables out from the 5006 to the analog TV.
If I use the "video source" button on the remote to get to the "S-Video" option, then I can see the cable-TV programming with the cable connections described above. But that works only when the 5006 is turned on. I don't want to leave the 5006 on all the time I'm watching TV because I have read that overheating can be an issue.
Is there a way to configure the 5006 so that when it is turned off you can still see the TV programming, the way you normally can with a VCR unit? By the way, I don't know if my next point is related or not: When I go into Setup --> System --> Video Output, the only options given are "Component" and "Progressive," even though in the manual the illustrations show "SCART S-Video" as another option.
Has anyone experienced this missing-S-Video-option problem, and, if so, is it a matter of updating the firmware off of Lite-on's website? If I am able to make a change to have that S-Video option, will choosing that option in Setup make it possible to view the TV picture while the 5006 is turned off?
Hope someone can help. Thanks!
