General Comments
I have a Mustek V56L from Dick Smith Electronics. I have an older tv, so have had to connect it to my video, and then the video to the TV via RF, which is not the best. Was having problems with it pulsing - both audio and visual - too much power coming through the RF cable. THe only way to fix this was to hack it and turn off the macrovision. I also did this to change it to multizone. Now it has lost vertical tracking on the opening screens but this sorts itself out when the DVD begins EXCEPT on a Zone 1 DVD I just tried. I tried turning Macrovision back on to see if the tracking would return to normal to no avail. :(
