Pioneer DVR-215: Post your scans and questions here

DVR-215D (1.22 FW [bitsetting, RPC1, and increased read speed])
TYG-03 (water shield)
Analyzed on Samsung SH-S223Q SB03 at 8x

BURNED AT 20X


The 20X wins out again for the patched 1.22 FW

I still have no idea if any of these scores are good. I have seen some scans around here with almost no PI Failures or at least they are spread apart.

TY +R 8x @ 12x :bow:







Those scans destroyed mine! :bow::sad::bow::sad:

Is the DVR-215L different than the DVR-215D? Could I cross flash to that? It looks like my scans suck.

I still haven’t gotten anybody’s opinion of all of my scans. Compared to yours they are garbage. How horrible are they?

:o you can try a slower speed, 12x would be a good speed to start.

[QUOTE=tjcinnamon;2218112]Is the DVR-215L different than the DVR-215D?[/QUOTE]

No.

[QUOTE=tjcinnamon;2218112]Could I cross flash to that? [/QUOTE]

Yes, you will have to search the forum to find out how to do that.

[QUOTE=tjcinnamon;2218112]It looks like my scans suck.[/QUOTE]

I don’t know how good is the samsung as a scanner, but your scan are very good.

Not horrible, they are ok.

Keep your 215D you wont have again the chance to have another burner like that:cool:.

Anyone know where to get 1.22L firmware? I can only find 1.18L (S15J.118)

Found it. http://www.firmwarehq.net/Pioneer/DVR-215L/files.html

THANK YOU FOR ALL OF YOUR HELP! This new firmware works great. I am getting my best scans yet and I have verified them with an additional burn.

I tried 12X burns as well but they left huge PIE and PIF in the first 500mb of the disc (confirmed with multiple burns as well).



Media : RiDisc Pastel DVD-R 8x
MiD : MCC 02RG20 (no fake)

Kernel files are available on RPC1.org

YAY! I found a 215! I had to order it from Australia, and all they had was beige. But if it’s as good as most of you say it is, it’s worth it…cost me almost $50.

Now that I have one, I want some opinions on the best firmware to use? I mostly burn movies, and the occasional data disk. Lemme know which firmware you guys like the best…

Oh…by the way…here’s where I got it.

YUDEN000 T02 and TYG03 are not equal. :bigsmile:

Why scanning at 4x?

[QUOTE=BlackholeForever;2218910]Why scanning at 4x?[/QUOTE]

I like this speed, and even if i scan at 18x the result is almost the same when it comes to PIF, and a little higher near the end for PIE.
