This dvd recorder is a clone of the liteon LVW 5001, and the same hack posted by hikhak works for this unit.
Follow same steps.

Region code hack posted by hikhak, March 10 2004:
found a hidden menu on the "Setup" menu on Lite-On's LVW-5001.
you must do the following to open it.
Enter "Setup" menu on the screen.
Scroll down and highlight "Exit".
While "Exit" is highlighted enter 2,9,6, and 0 and press "Enter".
A hidden menu pops up and you can select your region.

I found this information from the user comments for the Lite-on LVW-5005
and it also works for the ilo DVDR04:


I have discovered a trivial workaround for the inability of later-made LVM
-5005 machines to record a macrovision (MV)-encoded signal.

1. On the LVM-5005, start recording from a source that does not contain MV.
A blue screen or the splash screen of your DVD player will work fine.

2. Just after the recording has started, press <pause>.

3. Start the source that contains MV. For a DVD movie, this would mean
loading a disc, navigating through the menu and and starting the movie. For
a VHS tape, this would mean starting it playing.

(I'm adding a little more information here which may or may not be ILO
specific: When you start your source, watch the icon at the top of your screen
- it will change from pause to the ø then back to the pause indicator. When it
is back to the pause indicator proceed to step 4)

4. Press <pause> again to resume recording.

I hope this works for everyone... It did for me.

Please visit my ILO DVDR04/HD04 Firmware site for the latest firmware upgrades for these recorders. The site includes the latest firmware for the DVDR04, hacked to include LP 3-hour mode and disable MacroVision.

Just for information this player also has a PAL converter and will play PAL discs on an NTSC TV once the region free hack is applied.

Picked one up when my Liteon LVD 2001 bit the dust.
Region hack above works perfectly! For Macrovision-Free & 3 hour (LP) recording, download hacked firmware here:
(I used 1098 Rev. B hacked, burned Nero image to disc).
Works great!
