Question about LG Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have an LG LCD TV (42LC2D) & a LG HDD/DVD Recorder (DBRH197). The HDD/DVD is connected to the TV via a HDMI cable. Generally, when I watch DVDs, I change the Input on the TV to HDMI, however since last night, when I do this, I am getting an on-screen message of "No Signal" and "Invalid Format". I have tried to reset the HDD/DVD by following the instructions on Pg 61 of the Owners Manual, but to no avail. Please advise how to fix the problem. As a family of European background, my husband & I want to be able to watch DVDs from all Regions, not just Region 4.

First thing to do here is to check the connection adn if possible try a different cable , because sometimes this can only be a connection or a cable problem,, as for making it unlock so you can watch any DVD on it, there's a lot of site there that is offering that service to unlock the regional code of this unit...

Hope that helps.........

Can't tune in tv with dvd freeview.it states ext link problem


If you've connected the DVD to the TV via HDMI or SCART you shouldn't need to 'tune it in', just select the HDMI or SCART input. If your TV is also a Freeview device and you want to tune it to Freeview, where you have the aerial connected to the DVD recorder, you need to also connect the DVD recorder to the TV via an RF cable or aerial flylead so that the aerial signal passes through the DVD recorder. It's all in the instructions

You have probably found out now that you would need to get your digital reception by connecting a set top box to the LG, say to AV1, then select AV1 when making a recording.

How can i improve my tv LG LH20 42" in terms of


There are a couple of things that you can try to see if the image clears up, or is to your liking. You can adjust the resolution of the picture via the menu in the tv. You can also try resetting the tv to the factory settings, via the menu. You can also try auto configuration, which is also a menu item. If you are using a dvd/blu-ray player, use the HDMI cable for optimum picture quality.

Use an HDMI cable from my LG DVB-T HDD/DVD recorder


A quick google search of that model number turns up that tv doesn't have an HDMI port. Your next option would just use component cables instead. At 26 inches you will never notice the difference.

I'm simply looking for the most efficient way to hook up my HD-TV with HDMI inputs to both my cable box (with HDMI inputs) and my DVD player/recorder so that I can record from the TV I watch.  ...


The way you have it hooked up right now will not work unless you have a coaxial out on your cable box going to the dvd recorder. Even then, picture quality will be severely degraded. The best way to do it is to leave your cable box hooked up to your TV via HDMI and connect your dvd recorder to your cable box via component video if your dvd recorder has a component video input. If it doesn't, then just use the composite video input. That way your picture quality will be better and you will still be able to record with the TV off.
