    I just bought a Liteon LVW5005 and find it won't play .mpg files recorded on a PC HDD from a TV tuner card and then copied to DVD. My Philips DVD player plays them okay, though. Is there a firmware update for the Liteon, or is this a fundamental limitation. If so, is there a (cheap) DVD recorder that will also play .mpg files?

    Thanks, but I've got about 30 DVDs made already with .mpg files recorded from the PC TV card. These play perfectly on the Philips DVD728 machine, but are not recognized by the Liteon!

    I'm not aware of any DVD players that play straight .mpg files.... :thumbsdow

    Which Philips DVD player are you saying plays straight mpg files? I have a Philips too and it's hard enough getting them to play all DVD's!

    I've hacked my LDW5005 (see other thread) so I'll give it a try and report back.

    It's a Philips DVD728, and plays .mpg files with no problems at all, except that it occasionally freezes when I try to fast foward 32X sometimes, and then I have to reset it by unplugging the mains socket! Other than that, it's a very good machine that plays anything you put into it.
