I recently got this on Woot... http://www.woot.com/Blog/BlogEntry.aspx?BlogEntryId=2368 I received it today and hooked it up. It works fine with my Dish Network receiver, but whenever I try to record to any type DVD, it seems like it records fine for a few minutes then the video and audio pause on screen. I have to pull the power cord then plug it back in to be able to do anything. Do I have a dud? I tried upgrading the firmware following the instructions on the LiteOn website to the T, but nothing comes up on my screen when I insert the CD-R with the latest firmware on it. I have it hooked up this way. From the Dish Network 311 box I used an S-Video cable and a set of RCA audio cables to plug it into my LiteOn LVC-9015G. From the LiteOn, I used another S-Video cable and another set of RCA Audio cables to hook it up to my TV. The picture looks great. I tried recording to a DVD long enough before it would error out. I played the recording just fine so I am not sure what is going to to be honest. Any help will be greatly appreciated. I might run to a store and get a couple of brand new Sony DVD+RWs to try and see if I have bad DVDs but I find that to be unlikely.
