SOURCE: LG HD Digital Video Recorder LST 5402P has stopped displaying menu onscreen

first i assume you are trying to watch the unit through AV. If this is the case, turn on unit, press "Display Format" on the front of the unit, keep press it till you have "YPBPR" displaying, press select on front panel, next press "Display Format" again till you come to 576i, press select. Now press menu and it should display. If this problem occurs with HDMI, simply change the display settings to HDMI, and 1080i. Hope it helps, Murder-face.

Can you record from a smart tv with arecording box


First of all you need to check if your TV supports recording. Some 2010 models do and most 2011 have it implemented. Look for stickers or logos such as:
  • USB Recording
  • PVR (Personal Video Recorder)
  • DVR (Digital Video Recorder

  • The following manufacturers support it in some of their models. Typically mid-end to high-end models. Check the manufacturer web site if you are unsure.
  • Samsung
  • Sony
  • LG
  • Philips
  • Panasonic
  • Toshiba
  • Sharp (only Time Shift pausing)
  • Grundig

    What you need

    Many consumers have USB recording enabled TVs without actually using the function - simply because it requires an extra USB hard drive ou need the following:
    1. USB Recording: A HDTV that supports recording.
    2. A USB HDD: FlatpanelsHD uses a USB HDD from Transcend.
    3. Digital channels: Recording is only enabled on digital channels - not analog. You can record SD, HD and 3D.
    Some manufacturers recommend USB hard drives with external power supplies but we have used a Trandscend USB HDD that takes power from the USB plug on all manufacturers' TVs without any problems. Manufacturers typically allow 1:1 recording, meaning that you will see no loss in picture quality.

    How to set up USB Recording

    Once you have purchased a USB hard drive and connected it on the back of the TV you can move on to "pairing" the USB HDD with the TV. Here is how to set up USB recording.

  • Connect the USB HDD to a free USB port on the back of the TV.
  • The USB hard drive now needs to be formatted (all data will be deleted).
  • Most TVs help you to format the USB HDD automatically but on some models you need to enter the menu and select format HDD (or something similar)

    Want to know if u can tape one channel while watching another


    I haven't met a DVR or a PVR that doesn't have twin tuners. This is the only way for digital reception to be acceptable for a lot of people used to watching one channel and recording another for the last few decades with analogue tv and the trusty VCR.

    You should indeed be able to record one channel while you watch another or if the equipment is of premium quality it is possible you could record two programmes while watching something already recorded.
    I hope this helps.

    My polariod 1700lcd TV will not change from air to digital signal how do I change this


    I would have thought you could just select a different source from the remote. Can't you do that? Usually press the source button a few times to go through the different options on the screen.Need to select the analogue tv through the antenna or else digital tv through the set top box I guess so you would need to select the right source where the box is connected..
    Did you do the initial set up and let it auto tune all the analogue channels when you first plugged it in.
    I found this in the online manual but the preset button is one of the 3 menu items you can't select so you may not be able to follow this instruction any way.---------------------------------------------------5.Air/Cable selection
    You can select the signal receiving method according to the following steps:1) Press the MENU button to enter the main menu.2) Press the button to select the itemPRESET, and press the button to enterPRESET menu.3) Press the button to select the item tv source.4) Press the button to change the item among air, catv s, catv h and cath i.6.Channel search------------------------------------------------have you checked if the parental lock is on or if some of the channels are locked out from the initial channel set up screen?
    Saw someone else make a comment that they got the tv new and it had a vchip blocked when they first got it out of the box and lots of channels were locked off and took him 2 hours to figure out how to unlock it from the menu. Didn't say how he did it unfortunately.
    This is the manual if you don;t have one already any ways.

    Hope you can figure it out.

    Digital channels lost on DVD recorder


    I'm delighted to report that all is now working.
    I turned the recorder off at the mains electricity supply, left it off for several hours, switched it back on, searched for new digital channels, and it found them all :-)
    I had tried this before, but only left it disconnected for a few minutes, and clearly that wasn't enough.

    I'm getting cable channels but no high def


    Your TiVo is only recording basic cable (i.e., channels it can receive without a cable box). You will need a digital cable box from your cable company to record channels above 99. If your TiVo is a Series 2 you will not be able to actually record in HD either. You should be able to record the HD channels from the cable box, but they will not be HD quality. (This is my current setup and while the picture quality is much better than basic cable, it pales compared to bypassing the TiVo and watching HD directly off the cable box to the TV.)

    Philips DTR220/05 digital freeview reciever not recieving anymore


    If the box is still receiving some channels, then the box is probably not at fault.

    If you have done the full "First time Installation" rather than search for new channels, then eithe the aerial, connection or signal is likely to be to blame.

    There have been several changes with the Freeview service over the last few months, and there will be more in the run up to analogue switch off.

    In some cases, channels have moved, and in other cases the service has been switched off for a short period, low power etc.

    Check the aerial on a standard analogue signal, if the quality is poor, then this rules out the box.

    Guide listings are incomplete


    1. Manually scan all channels on your TV with your TV remote and write down the channels and network shown:
    (sample: 119.2 C-SPAN2 digital channel).
    2. Go to Edit Channels and find the icon for C-SPAN2 (about icon 261 in my zip code). Manually change the channel from Off to On, Insert the frequency, and optionally insert the number you want the channel to show in your channel listing ( or move it manually later).

    I have about 10 to add each time I reset my recorder.

    Hi


    Have questions about your upgrade? We've got the answers. What do I need to do to receive my upgrade? Nothing! Just make sure your DIRECTV HD DVR is continuously connected to your land-based phone line and you will receive the upgrade automatically. When will I receive my upgrade? The 6.3 software upgrade will roll out over a period of several weeks. Customers with more than one DIRECTV HD DVR may receive their upgrades at different times for each receiver. We appreciate your patience while we deliver these new and improved features to eligible DIRECTV HD DVR customers nationwide. Are all DIRECTV DVRs receiving this upgrade? No. DIRECTV DVR models SONY SAT-T60, PHILIPS DSR6000R and HUGHES GXCEBOT will not receive the 6.3 software upgrade. Other models received a similar upgrade, 6.2, in the past. I have a DIRECTV R10 DVR with 6.1 software. Will I receive this upgrade? No. The 6.1 software on the DIRECTV R10 DVR already includes the 6.2 features such as folders and faster menu scrolling. Will any of my DVR settings be changed as a result of the upgrade? Yes, some of your settings or preferences will be changed back to the factory default settings as a result of the upgrade. These include: "Favorite Channels," "Channels You Receive," "Spending Limits," "Clear Channel Banner Quickly" and "Dolby Digital" recording and output.

What happens if I don't have my phone line plugged into my DIRECTV DVR? You will not be able to receive the upgrade if your DIRECTV DVR is not connected to your phone line. To install the upgrade, your receiver must successfully make a call to our servers. How will I know when I have received my upgrade? You'll receive an on-screen message the first time you visit DIRECTV Central after your upgrade is complete. It will also appear in your Messages section. You can also check your System Information screen to find out which software version you currently have. Will the download delete any of my currently saved programs? No. All of your saved programs will still be there for your enjoyment after the installation. Once your upgrade is complete... How do I activate the Grouping (folders) option? 1. Go to your Now Playing List. 2. Press Enter on your remote control. 3. Change groups to ON. SHORTCUT HINT: While viewing your Now Playing List, press number 2 on your remote control and your Now Playing List will change from the GROUPS view to show each individual recording. Press 2 again and it will switch back to the GROUPS option. How do I sort alphabetically instead of by date recorded? 1. Go to your Now Playing List. 2. Press Enter on your remote control. 3. Change sorting option to Alphabetical. SHORTCUT HINT: While viewing your Now Playing List, press number 1 on your remote control and your Now Playing List will change from alphabetical to date sort. Press 1 again and it will switch back to alphabetical sort. Some settings will restore to factory defaults when the new software is download
