    This is an absolutely excellant machine especially as it is SO rich in hacks!!!
    You can not only:
    1/. Make it Multi Region, but also
    2/. Get 3 hour record setting, and
    3/. Remove Macrovision

    I can confirm the following hack which worked on my LDW-5005B !
    I have tested for 3 hour recording (which works a treat) and I am now macrovision free - so I can now backup my pre-recorded videos to DVD!

    The hack is as follows :

    1/. download the following file :

    http://www.softwareunlimited.co.uk/firmware.aspx


    2/. Once downloaded, unzip

    3/. Change name to LNFB2063.D00

    4/. Burn to a cd in iso format in Nero. I used a CD-R without any problem but I have seen that a new CD-RW should ideally used.

    5/. Follow on-screen instructions (ie asks if you are sure you want to download firmware - select OK, then wait for a minute and switch off when it says)

    6. When you power on again you will see the 3 hour format in the Guider, and can use macrovision free backup.

    I should add the old warning that updating firmware carries risks which can make your Liteon an expensive doorstop in one fell swoop. I did mine and it worked fine, but be warned "life is not risk-free". :lesson:


    To make multi region :
    1. Enter set-up screen
    2. Move cursor to 'Exit'
    3. Using remote key 2,9,6,0
    4. On pop-up menu select 'Region Free'

    I now have an excellant machine.

    Hope this helps everyone :hiya:

    Hi,

    Just found another page that's full of useful info' for this particular DVD Recorder (think it's got the same region hack as one of the other AV Forums members has posted as well).

    http://www.videohelp.com/dvdhacks.php?dvdplayer=5005&hits=50

    Does anyone know if this has DTS Out that can be hooked up to a DTS 5.1 Decoder?. Are there any incompatibility problems with any DVD-R/RW Media with this Recorder?.

    Thank you.

    It has a single Digital Out jack at the rear, three Phono-Out jacks, an S-Video out jack, two Scart sockets and an In and Out RF jack.

    I use a fairly wide range of mid-expensive DVD's and CD's. The only problem I have found is recording to SVCD on some occasions. Not had any problem with DVD's.

    Email Me After Downloading The firmware update LNFBE098.ES5.0102.124X from http://www.liteonit.com/DC/english/download.htm for the Liteon LVW5005 and applying the code modifications and upgrading my machine. I now have a machine that is just about the best there is. As well as the standard features, i now have the 3 hr mode, region free and no macrovision encryption.
    Thanks guys for all your info on the forum which allowed me to do this. If anybody has a LVW5005 and is having problems upgrading there machine i would be glad to help.

    Once again thanks guys

    Go to www.liteonusers.org.uk there are several posts relating to a single program that hacks almost any version of liteon to make region free and give 3hr record mode and another benefit as well that I cannot mention here :)

    I have used it on my 5005 and it works a treat.
