I think Pioneer proclaim there won't be any support for 4x media being written at 8x in FW. So the only chance is >NIL: and his golden hands.
Why are you afraid of uploading hacked FW into 107D, when you are playing with hacked eeprom on Lite On DVDRW?
EEPROM games seems much more dangerous to me...
I am surprised you can't get any 8x rated media in US. Have you looked hard? Here in Czech rep. it's easy to buy them... But what is damn bad I can't get any cheap -R ritekg04 media here!
