    Thumbs up

    Be careful with the LiteOn LVW-5001, the tv-tuner is MONO !!!!
    This is confirmed by LiteOn Europe, they mounted a MONO tuner !!
    You will NOT be able to record tv-programs in stereo !!!!!

    Wat vind je van het apparaat.

    Article is mostly fluff. Not much substance.
    I wonder how much time the reviewer actually spent with unit?

    Check out the LiteOn IT official forum for owner/user comments regarding unit's many shortcomings.


    Seems unit was rushed to market, making current owners a BETA group!

    Unhappy odd review

    Hm, yeah, that stuff about the tuner and "how difficult" it is to record is just bizarre. It's *always* a pain to record from cable/satellite. And what other DVD recorders have a built-in TV guide? very few...

    And DVD+ is a better format than DVD- anyway, and it's hardly uncommon.

    If it indeed is mono it doesn't matter much. Since I would use my direct tv receiver or digital cable box to record.

    On the Faq section of the LiteOn site, the technical staff talks about a problem related to warm temperature inside and all around the unit....

    It's interesting to see that the LiteOn LVW-5001 DOES NOT HAVE a refrigerating cooler on his back...

    All others DVD Home Recorder have one cooler on their back side.

    What do you think about ?

    Default My Liteon 5001

    Mine works great and does just what we bought it for - transferring old camcorder tapes to DVD. Quit complaining!

    Well don't you just love it when people decide to make new threads when a thread already exists, and on top of it, make it about something illegal!

    Have you by chance read the book "Eats Shoots and Leaves" ? If not, it looks like you need it.

    This site has some interesting information on these units.

    If all else fails Google.

    Good question, don't know. You may have better luck trying the digitalfaq.com forums.
