    THE MPEG DECODER

The Mpeg decoder board on the 370 is controlled by the Atmel firmware chip and has the "C-Cube Ziva 4.1" video controller.

Some close ups show that the decoder is actually the same unit fitted to the LG 3350, as is the main circuit board. Basically, some components were removed from 3350, the back panel and outer casing was changed, a new fascia fitted and rebadged "Aiwa"!!
