Mar 03 2003, We're happy to announce that we've fully cracked the v8 DVD recordable protection. Starting now, all chips being shipped support the v8 console fully. No changes are made to the installation and the number of wires stays at 23. The DMS3 chips currently in the market do not support v8 with DVD recordable medias. However due to the low number of these chips in the market, and the fact that the v8 is just beginning to emerge, this should not be a problem.
