my 5005 still has the green cabbage effect on shadows and dark images, also has a strange pink cabbage that seems to creep in on greys, loses color when alot of neutral or "earthy" colors are nearby
If you have the LOTR Trilogy, or disc one(Fellowship of the Rings) anyways, play it, fast forward to exactly Chapter 10 at 45:00 and play, at 45:17 Blibo baggins says "get off the road quick!" and they all run and duck under a tree's roots. This is where the difference became very noticeable. When played through my old Toshiba SD-1200 everything looks fine and has good color, at least as much color as is there. When played on the LiteOn 5005, none of the characters have any color to their clothes, it look slike a black and white or greyscale picture except for the green grasses around the tree.
Another is on the same disc at Chapter 1 at 2:30 if you watch as the view from above at the army surging forward, on the LiteOn it is a mix of grey and pink blotches.
Also, at various points in the movie, the LiteOn generally has a hard time producing greys as grey, instead they take the form of pinks and shadows take on a green tint.
i updated my firmware to the 98 version i think a couple of months back, did no good
