Two questions about the Lite-On LVD 2001 set top DVD player.... (from an owner)

I’ve had my player for about 9 months, and it’s been great, but recently, it has been BUGGING OUT - on almost every movie. It still plays DIVX fine, but many DVD’s I have to boot up twice before it even makes it to the menu.

2 questions:

  1. If you own one, how has your experience been?
  2. Where can I get the recent firmware? I want to get this thing cleaned out.

Mine has done fine, unfortunately they discoed it before it had much of a chance to get many updates. This should be the last update for your machine

Thanks for the link!!! :slight_smile:



Actually, now that I think about it, have you had any problems with double black bars? For some reason, when we watch pretty much ANY movie, there appears to be a black letterbox around a greyish/black one. It’s very strange. The darker the movie, the most this “extra” box shows up. During bright scenes, it’s totally black.

Sound familiar?

I haven’t noticed that myself but it doesn’t mean yours is not doing it. DVD players and tv’s sometimes react in strange ways to each other. You might also want to check out the forums at to see what others are saying about our player as well. I know the last firmware was sposed to add some features and fix some problems.
I’ve mostly been using my newer Pioneer 563 lately.
