Hi all. I recently got a LiteON LVW-5007 at Sears. It was a good deal, and so far is a great little machine. Yet, I was trying to back up my classic Star Wars VHS's, and ran into a problem. MACROVISION! OH NO!... So, I did some research, and found this article:
Now, it talks about hacking the 5001 and 5005 firmware, and I'm told that a 5007 is just a 5001 with TV Guide. So, I downloaded the firmware, and looked at the hex, and edited it, but I don't want to kill my unit.
Original Firmware is here:
So, if anyone here wants to take a look at the 5007 firmware and possibly edit it to disable the macrovision, I'd be forever in their debt. Thanks.
