[quote=pez2;2210507]Do you think a firmware update would chnage this? i.e. improve the burn quality?[/quote] Maybe. Only time will tell.
Somehow I doubt it, since I’m getting problems with TYG02 as well as TYG03 with my Pioneer DVR-116D@116, and one would think those to be among the first media codes tested by Pioneer.
I’m getting out-of-spec PIF even at medium burn speed (tested as low as 6x) with otherwise good TYG02 and TYG03.
What media do you normally use?
I use Verbatim 16x DVD+R (MCC 004) more than anything else.
At the moment I’m using Taiyo Yuden 8x DVD+R (YUDEN000 T02) and Maxell Xtreme ProTek 16x DVD-R (MXL RG04) as my #2/#3 media.
I use YUDEN000T02.
Burns very nicely in most drives including my Pioneer DVR-116.
I’m currently looking for a new buner and was considering the 116/216 or maybe a lite-on ihas422.
It seems like a lot of people rate the 115, maybe I should have another look for one of these.
I don’t have personal experience with the LiteOn iHAS422 generation of drives. This could be a good choice if you need to perform Disc Quality Scanning of DVDs.
The Pioneer 115/215 series is very good if you can get any, but they don’t perform Disc Quality Scanning.
