Test:Liteon 5055 GDL HDD Recorder

Here is a in deepth test of the current flagship 250gig hdd recorder from



Any reason why these machine play divX but wont record in the same format??? Why would any manufacturer pay royalties/fees to play divx and not pay some additional fee to record in the same format???

AND- - -I’m very dissappointed this huge hard drive is not supported by allowing editing via computer with firewire or usb control? The size of the hard drive makes this almost mandatory???

Many more thoughts, but i’ll stop here. //// bobbo.
