other than the LVW 5005 which Liteon models can be hacked for MV, 3Hour, reagon free?
The 5025GHC+, 5045GHC+, 5045GDL+ and 5055GDL+ can be hacked for MV (though it only seems to work for VHS copying and some DVDs) and region free - not sure what 3Hour refers to - 3 hour recording (LP Mode) is standard on these recorders.

The 5001, 5006 (VCR Plus), 5007 (TV Guide), 5045 HDD.
