  1. bon j'ai envoyé ca a liteon ce matin, on va bien voir ce kil en ressort... ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Dear Sir, I wrote because I should say that I am a little disappointed about the support given by LiteOn to their LVD2001 customers. I owned 1 cd burner and a DVD-ROM from you firm and I should say I'm really satisfy by these two products, that's why I bought the lvd2001 several months ago but I regret it. Even if at the begin I really trusted on the how-know of LiteOn. We don't have any news from your firm on the development of firmwares since 2003.09.29 with fw229, I know that you published fw301b few days before it disappears from your web site on November 2003 but there were too much bugs in this firmware... I noticed that this one provided OGG support (a really great thing) and folders browsing, but it was not reliable so I returned to fw229... Why your firm takes so much time to release new firmwares? I would like to know if LiteOn will give a answer to their customers by providing a firmware mainly faithfully decompressing DivX3 (like KISS) and supporting directories browsing on cd's, because these points are really the big inconvenients on this player that could be really great else. So could you tell me if you will provide us such a firmware and when? Could it be possible to have emails informing us that new firmwares are released and what changes have been done in each version... Finally, I eared about that fact that LiteOn will stop selling LVD2001 and also will stop new firmwares development... (the second point is really amazing...) I would like to know if this is true? I take part in several IT forums and I should say that almost all the persons owning an lvd2001 in these forums fell fear about such a news. Thank you Best regards SPYNE ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  2. pour le dézonnage du kiss c'est hyper simple aussi: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Switch on. Open the CD drawer Press on the remote: CLEAR, then key's 2-7-6 A hidden menu will come up displaying all sorts of spec about the unit. 2 Options are available to change. SCART: DO NOT TOUCH REGION: Change setting to ALL REGIONS then click OK/ENTER -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  3. tu sais que dépendant du magasin où tu as acheté la platine tu as point de vu légal 7 jours (voir plus ds certains mag) pour te faire rembourser ton achat... alors n'hésite pas et prend plutot une kiss car celles là au-moins elles marchent d'enfer...
  4. oh alors celle la elle est dure a encaisser, il se font pas chier chez liteon... ca va en faire un paquet de mécontents... et ils vont pas se faire une tres bonne pub avec ca... :ARF: une mauvaise nvle avt le reveillon, c'est jamais bon...
  5. seb, t'as des news de LiteOn, où alors ils sont deja tous en congés ??? ;)
  6. nous sommes le 11 dec et nous attendons encore le fw stable et performant dont nous avez parler liteon et qui devait arriver mi-octobre... mais que font-ils ???
  7. si tel est le cas c'est vrmnt un truc a la con !!! (excusez-moi du peu ms bon, j'ai jamais vu une telle connerie)
  8. le passage systematique a la v301 n'est pas la solution! les mp3 embeded ds une vidéo divx3 doivent et sont lus correctement depuis le début par la platine de liteon. Je ne pense pas que l'upgrade va y changer qlqch... Le problème vient plutot soit d'un header mal foutu soit carement d'un problème au niveau du flux audio. Essai d'ouvrir ton divx avec le logiciel NanDub, si celui-ci repère des erreurs ds le flux vidéo ou audio, il va automatiquement les corriger!
  9. d'apres les echos ke g u sur d'otre forum le prob serait regler avec le 301beta, reste a voir l'efficacite...
  10. envoi moi en mp ce que tu cherches et je vais voir ce qui pourrait te convenir...
  11. voici une adresse sur laquelle dl le fw si liteon ne répond tjs pas http://empereur.ath.cx
  12. vache j'aurais jamais cru que mon article ferais aussi vite le tour que ca :eek: :eek: :eek: => je suis sur le cul => merci bcp pr le compliment !!! mais dis moi tu l'a lu par rapport à quel site TTH, PCI ou materiel.be ??? (juste pr savoir)
  13. qlq1 peut-il donner un site web annexe sur lequel on puisse dl le new fw (ke je teste ca car le site de liteon mouline et n'affiche que la banniere du haut de la page...) merci
  14. voici la réponse de liteon a mon mail : -------------------------------------------- Dear SPYNE, Thanks for your support and trust. We're sorry that the break through of Divx 3.11 isn't good as practically applied. The pity is that even the new firmware can not cover or recover it totally. But we will go on trying the best to make it as good as possible! There will be another version in the bottom of OCT or earlier in Nov, in the support for subtitle of *.srt. and audio format with *.ogg. also for folder function. Now it’s under the final reliability test by QA team. As for setting up a the client club for news and online support, it's one of our suggestion to our marketing team and there will show up the collaboration work in the near future.Fow now,please take our Customer Service email notice as a fix. Would you please visit our website for the official release at http://www.liteonit.com.tw/DC/english/csd.htm? Welcome your further request & Best regards. WW From: "SPYNE" To: <DCTW_Service@liteonit.com> Subject: Some questions... Dear sir, * I would like to know when the next firmware is scheduled for the lvd2001 player? * I would like to know if you will release a change-note with the next version of the firmware? * I would like to know if it's possible to register to a newsletter that will inform me everytime a new version of the firmware will be available? Thank you Regards SPYNE --------------------------------------------
  15. bon on est le 23 est tjs pas de new fw à l'horizon chez liteon, mais k'est-ce kil font...il était parti en certification vers le 13 et il est tjs pas sorti... y a surement du y avoir pas mal de bug à corriger avt une nvle certif, mais bon j'aimerais bien ki nous le sorte ce fw car deja un par mois c'est pas terrible (qd on voit kiss ki en sort un quasi ttes les 2 ou 3 semaines...) alors s'ils nous sucre le fw d'octobre je vais pas etre content, moa !
  16. ouep c'est vrai que la petite derniere de chez philips fait bcp parler d'elle et a l'air plutot pas mal sur le papier (j'en ai pas encore eu une entre les mains, donc...) Pour ce qui est du fw, je suis comme vs j'attends encore et tjs, mais je serais plus reservé, je pense que ca sera un fw mineur corrigeant qlq bug, pr ce ki est des remarques que je leur ai adressé je pense kil va leur falloir un peu plus de tps pr les réaliser (enfin s'ils le veulent). Donc wait & see (mais kil se dépêche car à partir du 23 j'aurais plus d'adsl pr 1 semaine alors vite les gars de chez liteon...)
  17. etant donné que la liteon et la kiss utilise le meme chip sigma et tournent ttes les deux sous linux et sachant que kiss a réussi a le faire, je dis prkoi pas, ca dois tt de meme pas etre compliqué de mettre un screensaver sur la liteon. Maintenant faut voir s'ils ont envi de le faire et qd ils on prevu de le faire...
  18. Pour ce qui est de la comptatibilité DivX+WMA, je pense que ca devrait etre faisable mais qd ca c'est une autre question... A l'heure actuelle, aucune platine dvd/divx ne permet de regarder des divx avec wma comme src sonore. La petite lueur d'espoir pr le lvd2001 est kil est capable de lire les music au format wma (parfaitement ou non, ca je ne sais pas encore) des à présent. Dc on peut se dire que s'il est capable de le faire en mode audio uniquement, il sera p-e envisageable ds le futur que liteon améliore le produit en permettant aussi une lecture du wma incorporé ds 1 divx... bref : wait&see !
  19. le prochain fw est prévu pr la mi-octobre et avec tte la liste des changements que je leur ai fillé, ils ont pas mal de boulot... Je ne sais plus si je l'ai posté ou pas mais j'ai egalement demandé à ce qu'ils baisse l'intensité du voyant power en mode off car ca ressemble a une disco (ms la je suis pas franchemnt confiant, je suis pas sur que ca soit gerable via le fw) et aussi de mettre en place le fait que lorsque l'on appui sur le bouton eject, la tv bascule en mode AV, puis que lorsque l'on fait un power off, le player rebascule sur la TV normale (ca par-contre c'est faisable via le fw, dc...) Bon je sais pas si le prochain fw sera vrmnt grandiose mais vu tte les infos que je leur fille pr ameliorer leur platine, il y a matiere a faire qlqch de plus que correct... Moi je pense plutot que tout ceci devrait arriver dans les futurs releases du fw, ms je suis pas sur que pr la prochaine ils aient eu le tps de mettre ca en place. Par contre, le truc que j'aimerais bien, c'est kil mettent en place une mailling list ki nous permettent de savoir qd une nouvelle version du fw est dispo et surtout qu'elles sont les modifs apportés dedans...
  20. Voila, je viens de répondre au mail que liteon m'a envoyé. NB: Une chose que j'apprecie bcp chez eux c'est kils sont tres rapident à répondre. Le support technique a l'air vrmnt tres sérieux. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Dear Sir, I own both a KISS DP-450 and a LiteOn LVD2001 player. Both of these players are using the same chipset provided by SIGMA (the same that is used in the SIGMA X-Cards). The KISS player owns a file manager built inside provided by SIGMA. So if SIGMA delivered such a kernel firmware to KISS, I'm confident in the fact that SIGMA would be able to design such a firmware for the LVD2001. Concerning the settings you wonder me, I made several tests and here are the conclusion : * Frame size : ->minimum : 576 x 320 ->maximum : 720 x 320 * Frame rate : ONLY 23.976 Fps (NTSC) OR 25 Fps (PAL) * Sound sampling rate : ONLY 44100 Hz OR 48000 Hz * FINALLY DivX3 videos bitrate : ->at a bitrate lower than 500kbps the divx3 movies are played almost perfectly => 1 or 2 scenes freeze ->between 500kbps and 800kbps => an average of 5 scenes freeze ->between 800kps and 1000kps => an average of 10->15 scenes freeze ->at a bitrate higher than 1000kps => the movie is unwatchable, it seems like a powerpoint slide ;) The matter is that if you want a good quality in a divx3 video, you have to compress it with a bitrate near or higher than 1000kps. Movies encoded with bitrate lower than 800kps are really awful there is a lot of macroblocs and pixels appearing. So it is REALLY IMPORTANT that the LVD2001 plays perfectly DivX3 video using bitrates equal or higher than 1000kbps. Please notice that all these informations was found thanks to a freeware called "GSpot". I'm shure you know it ! As I said above, the KISS dp-450 and the LiteOn LVD2001 use the same SIGMA chipset. I know that KISS use Linux OS to run their products. I made some tests with my LVD2001 player and I guess that the LiteOn LVD2001 also runs a Linux OS, I'm wrong ? KISS developpers have succed -with the fw2.7.1- in the fact that the dp450 plays every kind of DivX3 PERFECTLY ! KISS developpers haven't the experience and the know-how of LiteOn ones on programming firmwares so I'm really confident in the fact that LiteOn would provide soon to their customers a firmware that enable a PERFECT DivX3 (low-motion/fast-motion/SBC) playback. I hope this email will help your R&D departement. Please feel free to forward them this email.

Best regards, ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SP¥NE Subject: Some enhancements for the LVD2001 divx player 2003/10/02 05:10 PM Dear Sir, I send you this email because I have some enhancements to ask you for the LVD2001 divx player : 1/ I'm currently using fw0229. When I play DivX3 video, it freezes really too much to watch it in a enjoyable way. I noticed that this phenomenon often appears if the divx3 video bitrate is higher than 800kbps, however almost all my divx3 have a bitrate near 1300-1400kbps. Because if you use a smaller bitrate, the video is not really beautiful, you have several macroblocs and pixels everywhere. So I would like to know when LiteOn will provide his customer a firmware that makes divx3 playback really good (without constant freezes). 2/ When I play an mp3 cd, I noticed that all the mp3 files are listed in the root of the cd. However my cd contains several directories. So if you have almost 100 files on a cd, this operation becomes faster boring to scroll all the files to access the wished one. Does Liteon will change it by using a kind of directories browsing in the next firmwares because it's really more user-friendly and I think it would be a good think to improve it. 3/ Could it be possible to make the remote controller going faster to proceed actions done by pushing the buttons? I know that LiteOn is working hard to improve his player and make it as reliable and user-friendly as the KISS ones. I know that LiteOn listens to his customer's complaints with attention to make his product always better. So I hope that my email will help you to take conscience of some defaults and change them as soon as possible. I believe in the capacities of this player and in the know-how of LiteOn. I hope reading you soon Thank you Regards SP¥NE ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Voila, si avec ca, on ne fait pas avancer les choses, je sais pas comment on pourra.

  23. bon les codecs divx3 ne fonctionne tjs pas mieux avec le fw0229. qlq'1 sait-il ce kil apporte de plus car pr l'instant j'ai pas trop vu...
  24. Bon alors j'ai poussé plus avant mes tests avec les codecs divx3. Puisque à priori, il n'y a que eux qui posent problèmes, le divx4/5 et xvid passant tres chez bien moi. Pour l'instant, je n'ai eu le tps de tester que les low motion, les fast motion, le sbc et le vki devraient suivre prochainement. Ce que je peux dire pr l'instant du support du divx3 low motion, c'est kil est tres bien supporté tant que le bitrate du fichier vidéo ne dépasse pas les 800kbps (ce ki peut paraite peu pr certain, je sais...), a noter qu'avec des films faisant ~ ce bitrate, j'ai vu environ 3 ou 4 scenes avec des ralentissements, dc c'est pas la mort, mm si ca n'est pas encore parfait. Par contraire, j'ai essayé avec le rip de MON DVD DE STARWARS EP.1 (QUE J'AI ACHETE, si, si) avec un bitrate de 1400kbps, la c'est mm pas la peine la platine mouline comme une tarée et ca n'est pas regardable... Je vais tester ds les prochains jours le support des autres version du codec divx3. A noter que pr l'instant mes tests, ce sont fait avec le fw 0227. PS: le fw 0229, que je vous annoncé il y a peu sur le forum, est dispo sur le site de liteon. Je suis actuellement au boulot dc je l'essayerais ce soir.
  25. [Message original du 25/09/03] lut tlm, voila j'ai envoyé un mail ce matin à liteon concernant les problèmes de compatibilités divx3/wma, la réponse ne s'est pas faite attendre, la voici : --------------------------------------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Dear Sir, 1.Originally it's designed to support MPEG 4 of DivX 4 and 5, then conforming to the main stream of DivX 3.11, we add on software solution to play it better. However, it has several mile stones to reach like having all MPEG 4 movie playback smoothly as DVD (MPEG 2) and VCD (MPEG 1). 2. Because MPEG 4 movie is a new trend of digital Video content and it is not as standardized as DVD and VCD, so many varieties of Video and Audio parameters' combination can be run on ours in an effect not as good as PC does, or some even can't be read when confronting with factors of high frame rate, high bit rate, large compression rate and so on. For .avi, MPEG 4 movie, we support formats as follow: Video codec: DivX 3.11, DivX 4.x, DivX 5.x Audio codec: AC3, MP3, WMA 7, WMA 8, WMA 9 Suggested paramatters for composing MPEG 4 video Frame size: no larger than 720 x 576( PAL) Frame rate: no more than 24 frames per second, (PAL) Bit rate: less then 1MBits per second. Sound sampling rate: lower than 44.1 KHz In short, we can not achieve a good balance between features and price among present products including LVD-2001. However, we will collect the video content information as much as we can to imporve in a try to lead the performance as good as possible. Again, we would like to apologize for an inconvenience, but we appreciate for your support to our product. Now firmware V0229 is done and under verification by our QA department, There may as well be considerations to downgrade or integrate the next firmware to be a super one to support some hot requests, as we are devoted to be the best partner for the majority of clients following the popular entertainment media trend created by the current and future users! But no final schedule yet. Once the firmware put on web site for download, we will attach an improvement list for your quick reference! You can also check our website at http://www.liteonit.com.tw/DC/english/csd.htm for the latest firmware update. Best Regards! --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Subject: DivX3/WMA on LVD-2001 Hello, I'm a french user of the beautiful LVD2001. I think this dvd/divx player is great but there are two things that disappoint me a lot. First, the DivXs encoded with video codec v3 are awful and slow then there is no support for movies (divx3,4,5 and xvid) encoded with wma audio codec. I should say that this player is really amazing but it would be even better with full support of divx3 (low/fast motion and SBC) and wma. I know that liteon is working on such a firmware to improve these two points. I would like to know when it will be available? Thank you Regards SPYNE --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Donc voila le fw0229 est pres, il est partis en certif, ce qui veut dire qu'il ne devrait plus trop tarder, meme s'il était au départ annoncé pour mi septembre, mieux vaux tard que jamais. Donc je pense que ds les prochains jours le fw sera publié sur le net...
