Question about Projection Televisions

2 Answers

I have an LG RC897T DVD/VCR recorder. Problem: When record from timer (set for something like every Sunday…) it only records part of the program. I have it set at LP which should give 4 hours on a disk, disk is empty and timer is set to record 2 hour program(disc is a DVD RW that is initialized at LP setting). Usually only records about 1:20 on a 2 hour setting but that is not consistent. It works okay about 1/2 the time. Any Ideas? I have not tried the VCR timer recordings yet. Please help

    I have the same problem, sometimes. I recorded a movie from Turner Classic Movies and it was fine. I tried recording two baseball games from 8:30 to 12:30 on LP setting. It stopped recording the first time after 2 hours and 47 minutes. The second time, it stopped recording after 47 minutes. Then i tried to record other programs and they worked fine. Not sure what is going on. Called LG support and I was told that others have the same problem and they are working on firmware. Should be done by the year 2020 the way I feel.

    Same problem. Recorder may get only a few minutes of scheduled recording. Once or twice it has recorded correctly but you can't trust it!!

Have a toshiba tp 61H95 proj TV- want to connect panasonic dvd recorder and toshiba vhs recorder so I can copy family videos to dvd- can't get hook ups set up for both to work.


Select AV-1 or some thing in TV and plug DVD recorder Video-Audio output in AV-1 input of TV, playback any DVD and confirm its picture and sound in TV. Press Stop button of DVD recorder to stop playback.
Now plug Video-Audio output of VCR in DVD recorder input and select AV Input in DVD recorder, insert VHS tape in VCR and playback it and confirm you get VHS picture and sound in TV via DVD recorder.
Hookup between TV, DVD recorder and VCR is completed.
Playback VHS tape in VCR, Insert blank DVD disc in DVD recorder and press Record while you see VHS tape picture in TV.
Hope this info will help you.

Hi I just bought a Wharfedale DTR250 twin tuner HDD. How can I connect it up to be able to record sky programmes? On my old VCR all I did was set the VCR to EL1 and the selected Sky programmes recorded OK....


My solution was to return item to Argos, got my money back and will now go ahead and order a Sky Plus Box. Apparently these type of Recorder will not record Sky programs!!

Samsung DVD-SH855


Hi Thanks to all. Problem was solved by my son who suggested that I turn the unit off in standby mode. Samsung DVD-SH855 will not record via timer settings when the unit is left with pwr on. Only works if pwr switched off.
Had I known this prior to purchasing I would have purchased a brand that worked with pwr on.
