I've had two Loewe DVD Xemix,and I'm not too impressed with them,the first ones transport gave up after 1 year,took 5 months to sort it out,tried about 5 different transport,each time I was told it was fixed,just to get it home and not read the disc,complained to Loewe in Germany so they told Loewe representitive in Spain to send me a newer Model,used it a little while and it broke down again less than 1 year! Loewe said it couldn't be repaired,I waited another 3 months to be told this!and if i paid 200 Euro they would send me a new model,what a joke.
Build is like a biscuit tin,transport is clunky and noisy,picture is good though like there TV,but service/turnaround/reliabilty are very poor,stick to there TV's only.
Even though I would love to have an MR-capable machine, I have too cautious to try any MR hacks since ...
- I have found no specific references to the newer models (6122, 8122) in the online sites I have checked ... The online DVDR MR update hacks I have found (e.g. www.dvdrhelp.com) only list the older Xemix models ... 5106, 9106.
- My dealer believed that the older Xemix models were definitely Philips OEMs, but he was not sure about the newer ones (he had heard that Loewe were establishing closer ties to LG ?). He claimed he was not aware of any hacks for the 6122 or 8122.
