Liteon mains lead needed

Hi,
Don't know if anyone can help. I have acquired a Liteon LVW5005 DVD recorder and need a mains lead for it. I am told that it is a proprietary type not generally available in the UK, so I am wondering if anyone knows a source for one. It is similar to the standard "figure of 8", but with one end flattened off. So if a figure of 8 connector looks like "OO" looking end on, this looks like "DO".
If no luck it will be out with the toolbox/soldering iron to convert it, which I want to avoid.
Many thanks in advance for any advice.

I have a Sky box with exactly the type of socket you are speaking about and have found that a standard figure-of-eight lead fits perfectly well.:D

Top answer, thank you! If I'd researched a bit more I'd have found out it's a "polarized C8 style" socket (figure of 8 is standard C8). And they are compatible (good old WIKI).

Thanks again
Martin
