Question about LG DVD & Blu-Ray Players

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.........

My LG DVB-T HDD/DVD Recorder will not play or record sound via TV Channels!


If the TV source is separate from the recorder, there has to be a physical connection between the two. From your description it seems there is a video connection, but what about audio?

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 to connect motorola cable box to samsung dvd/vcr model vr375 to a Westinghouse hdtv with 2 hdmi connections


The DVD-VR375 does not have an HDMI input. The connection should be:
• RED WHITE & YELLOW CABLE from your cable box (AV OUT) should connect to the DVD-VR375 (AV IN 1). Set the DVD-VR375 to AV 1 using the INPUT SEL. button.
• Next, connect an HDMI cable from the DVD-VR375 (HDMI OUT) to the TV (HDMI IN). Set the TV to the proper source.
This connection would allow the recorder to work as a pass through and will let you record TV programs as well as watch your cable channels.

Hope this helps!
