I have a question that maybe someone will know how to help. I have two LiteOn LVW 5005A's, and have had the same problems with both recorders. Both are made July 2004. I have a audio sync problem and a timer recording problem. I have noticed each time that it happens when I record for more then 1 hour, usually I record to up to 5 hours straight. The audio sync problem would happen late in the second or early third hour. I tried using the timer recording, by setting it say from 8 to 9, then 9 to 10, then 10 to 11 and so on. It seemed fine until the 3rd hour when it wouldn't transition to the 3rd hour and it would just say stopping, and gets confused and locks up. The other problem with timer recording consecutively is that it would lose 30 seconds each time shutting off say at 9 and restarting at 9. Try it yourself. I am in Connecticut, USA, taping my TV shows off of Comcast Cable, usually SCI FI Friday night, which is 4 hours. Here is my question. Would you use the tv tuner on the 5005, or would you use my VCR tuner, which is a Proscan with HI FI? Also, do you think that will cure the audio sync problem?
Let me know what you think, with all the problems I am having and possibly how to solve it
