The LVW-5005 from LiteOn is a DVD player and recorder that allows you to dub and record video to DVD rewritable discs. It includes a TV tuner as well as a DV Link input so you can record up to six hours of programming onto a DVD or dub footage off of a digital camcorder directly to DVD. The LVW-5005 also features upgradeable firmware so you can update your system to give you compatibility with newer formats.
