LiteOn LVW-5045 HDD&DVD Recorder
Packaging & Interior Look
The retail package that arrived in our labs contained the unit, a remote control with two AAA batteries,
a power cable, an AV cable and and RF patch cable. Also included in the packaging is the operating instructions manual.
On the unit's front panel, from left to right one can see the
power button and the optical drive's tray. Towards the right, there are
six buttons: the eject, play and stop buttons, the HDD/DVD button that selects
playback and recording from either the internal hard drive
or the built-in DVD-RW drive, and the last two buttons are the record and source.
Right below these there is a small panel that houses three AV RCA
connectors. A little to the left, we can see a DV connector that can
be used for connecting a DV camcorder for transferring videos
to the LVW-5045.
The pictures below are from the interior of the LVW-5045, after removing
the cover. This action is not recommended, since it voids
manufacturer's warranty. (Click on the images for high resolution size views).
Although it cannot be seen from the pictures, the LVW-5045 features the
LiteOn SOHW-832S DVD
burner drive. The SOHW-832S supports up to 8x DVD
From the picture above, we can see the internal hard drive located inside
the LVW-5045. It is a Seagate U Series 9 160 GB IDE hard drive.
On the back there are the LVW-5045's audio/video connectors.We can find a multitude of connections there.
Starting from left to right we can see: VHF/UHF in/out (for the TV signal),
digital optical output, coaxial digital output, 1 Scart output, 1 Scart input.
There are also the composite AV outputs, and the component AV outputs. There is no on/off switch on the back, so if you want to cut the power to the LVW-5045, you will have to unplug it.
The average sized remote control, offers complete control over the LVW-5045.
The included manual manages to explain in detail and with relative simplicity
all the LVW-5045's operations.
