Question about Lite On Lite-On LVW-5045 DVD Recorder with 160GB Hard Driver :

1 Answer

High pitched tone from front end video-audio components

For the last 8 months I have a technical problem with my Liteonit LVW 5045. While watching programs in real time or programs recently recorded, programs are spoiled by a high pitched tone in the sound track. While not a pure tone, the main sound is on ”G” above high ”C”. Older programs recorded months ago have no such tone I wrote this information to your email and received a FAQ sheet. I have been trying to get service from Liteonit; the response given by someone who was totally unable to understand the problem.

Before I bought my Liteonit, I investigated adding two TV I/O cards to one of one of my PC`s (of 8) and using available software, to build my own DVR. From this and a career in electronics, I am pretty sure that the problem is in the front end video and a/d components. Do you have a ”Mail in” service facility that could
repair this unit? Can you provide an estimate of the cost of such repair it? If you do not have the service can you refer me to someone who does? Thanks

I'm sorry to take so long to get back to you, but I've been very busy. I've worked as late as 5:30 a.m. one night. It took me a week to get around to downloading the bio, another to record something - "Guys and Dolls" on TCM - and a day or so to watch it. YOUR SOLUTION WORKED PERFECTLY. I've been trying to get a solution from Liteonit for eight months - It was still under Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";}warrantee Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";}but I didn't know it.

TV picture not clear


First we need to know a little more details about the kind of TV you have, the kind of service (Cable, Satellite or off Air).
Comparing showroom to your home is also something we need to know. Was the showroom using Cable or Satellite. Satellite will always have a better picture quality wise.
If you are using composite input for the signal path between TV and source this would not produce a High Dif picture Composite = Yellow for video, red and white for audio. If you are using Component source that will produce a HD signal cable is RED/BLUE and Green with different audio.
The best quality is using an HDMI cable, this is all in one cable and the sources is the best. One last thing, if you are using the RF *cable as source it will not give you a quality signal.

Sound drop with Shaw pvr box with hdmi. How do


This is a very common problem with no real solution. If your TV can be programmed to accept separate audio from HDMI video on the same input, you can feed the audio through standard RCA cables. Unfortunately most TV's do not allow this. Alternatively run them into a stereo receiver. Buying high end HDMI cables will not help. Most people I know with this issue have bit the bullet & just used component video instead. The difference in quality is minimal.

Y/Pb/Pr outputs are green; needs


There is no calibration for the component video that I know of, check your cables you may have a bad Pr cable or the Pr/Pb ones may be mixed up.

Y (the green one) is for luminance, plug in ONLY this connector and you should see a black and white picture.

Now connect the Pr. You will now see red tones.

Now connect the Pb. And you will see blue tones.

Reverse the Pr and Pb and see what happens.

Oh and make sure you don't accidently have one plugged into a composite video or digital audio port.

Still not looking right?

Go into the input menu of the TV and change the component (or colourstream) input from RGB to Y/Pr/Pb. (most TVs do not have this feature.

Hope this helps!

Do you need to use rf cable as well as scart connections ,with a dvd, sat. box and tv


Most modern entertainment electronics equipment have multiple ways of connecting. You just need to know how to connect them so it will be easiest to switch to vcr, dvd, satellite, cable, etc. You can use video/audio cables (yellow/red/white at both ends), RF cable, s-video cable, etc. You can use a combination of any or all of these, but the trick is to know how to switch from watching one to watching another.

Hope this helps!

Dish Network DVR 625 Problem with playback of recorded shows


It sounds as though the hard drive is about to go south on you soon and the receiver is going to need to be replaced however, in the interim you can change the options of the recordings and make it a default so that the recording continues past the end of the show. It is possible that extending this time will allow you to view the portion you want before it skips to the end. In order to do this press the guide button and select a program in the future. On the create timer screen select the option icon. You will now be at the timer options screen you can extend the time the recording will last after the end of the show and when it will begin recording prior to the show. I would also set this as your systems default so that it performs the same way regardless of what you are recording. According to the latest known receiver issues this is not identified as it is a common indication that the hard drive has an error internally. If this works I suggest that you have a replacement sent to you so that you do not lose the use of your DVR un-expectantly.Remember to watch all recorded events prior to replacement as you will lose that info when the receiver is swapped. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

Motorola DCT 6200/1000 seems to only have one audio output?


There are three options:

1) Connect the Tivo using the coax output of the cable box into the cable input of the Tivo

2) Exchange cable boxes with your cable provider for one with composite output jacks. It may require you to use a Motorola box that isn't High def depending on what your provider has. I know Comcast has a Motorola HD tuner that has composite outputs as well as component.

3) Upgrade to a Series 3 Tivo. Those units are designed for High Def. Use HDMI cable hookup.

Setting up receive set top box and tv for surround sound


Plug the TV to an open channel on your receiver via this output:
*Rear, 1 x Digital audio output (coaxial) ( TOSLINK )
This will look like a single RCA output plug.
Set that input channel on your receiver to some sort of virtual surround mode because it doesn't look like your HDTV has a decoder in it (meaning it will come out stereo and the receiver will have to fake it).
Turn the volume all the way down on the TV and use the receiver to control TV volume just as you do with DVDs.

*Substitute this with the digital audio output on your set top box if you are sending video only to the TV from the set top box (component, DVI or s-video connections). So video goes to the TV, audio to the receiver.

Phillips Home Theatre System


Did you try un-plugging all cords, turning off power to that circuit, or indivisually disconnecting all electrical cords from each component that has no sound emmitting from it. This procedures sometime or some how reboots the audio or video component to its original setting. Good luck Sir.
