Philips to use LSI chips in new recorders

Seems that Philips is getting out of trying to push it’s own Nexperia chipsets for set top DVD Recorders.This opens up the way for production of settops in the Far East - along the lines of the LiteOn produced DVDR520H?

There’s been some debate about whether that’s the case on other forums, IIRC. As our resident analyst of all things newly-manufactured, are all Philips 520Hs LiteOn-produced, or perhaps only a proportion…?

Don’t know(hence the question mark)-I’ve seen some of the debate too-people seem to say the Instruction manuals are the same as LiteON ones-same photos etc
