SOURCE: RECORDING PROBLEM

Connectivity problem. Without knowing your models and their available channels etc., it's very difficult to advise you exactly.
Broadly though ...... you need to get the input signal routing sorted.
Plug your aerial into the Freeview box. Make a connection from its RF out, (beside the aerial 'in' socket) to the aerial 'in' socket on the JVC. Run yet another co-axial connection from the JVC RF 'out' to the television.
Now - connect a scart lead between the JVC and the TV. Power off the freeview. Switch your TV to accept A/V - to show the JVC on screen. Read/go through the 'Set up' procedure on the JVC to scan in the available broadcast channels. When done - connect using a scart between the Freeview box and the JVC. This will be located on either the L1 or L2 channel selection.
IF as it seems you are using the freeview to watch all your programmes - and record in then you are simply watching and recording 'live' change the Freeview programme and the JVC gets that same one arriving in (and sending to the TV)
Unless you need to record Freeview only output - always record from the aerial input. You select via the television remote (and 'TV' selected) and the appropriate channel.
Complex to explain - hope it helps. The one thing to remember - is to make one set of changes at a time - check the result is okay, before moving to the next.

SOURCE: When auto tuning my LG

Hello,

The ABC channels arrive on a different Harmonic than Analog signals; specifically the third Harmonic. When you auto tuned, the auto tune chip looks for stron analog channels on the first harmonic and any other strong signals. However the LG model is notably poor at capturing 3rd Harmonic signals.

Harmonics are different frequencies where the same signal can be captured. Making this overly simplified: a frequency multiplied by 2 is a harmonic and that multiplied by 2 is also of the same harmonic; inversely dividing by 2 and 2 gain and so on finds harmonics down in light wave frequencies.

You may be able to manually tune these ABC frequency channels manually (I do not know, as I live in the US and have no direct experience with this) and then add them in one by one. But, using the Auto Tune feature again will wipe those out. The same thing happens to other weak signals, which harmonic is actually (its on an offset carrier wave).

I just read of a man who built an improved antenna and put this in his attic and received ABC channels quit well. A decent understanding of Antenna physics is required, but it only took up 1.5m wide by .8m (sic) long. In a nutshell he improved his basic antenna by building his own more sophisticated antenna.

Shopping around and asking in the shops should get you an antenna add on that will work for you.

As I stated before I live in the US, and we don't have this, but I and others here at fixya have various experience in amateur radio.

I will ask a friend of mine who lives in Australia to confer with me on this problem of yours so he can add some value to our response to you.

Regards,
Worldvet

Not unless it has a twin tuner (which I don't think it has)

Only one channnel was displaying all the time


Are you using a cable or sat box. If so your channels are select in that box. If you are using the tuner in the tv go to the menu and do channel search. Make sure you are set to antenna.

Hi I've purchased a mixer (Alto Lynx - Mix 164 USB 16 channnel / 24 bit digital stereo processor), but i do not have an instruction manual so i don't know how to use most of the functions. Can you...


Here is the manual for the model Lynx-Mix MX 124, which should be similar. It's a 12-channel version while yours is 16, but the basic operation should be the same. They have a contact form on their support page, and maybe if you request a manual they can supply one. (I'm sure they'll probably want you to purchase it, or they'd probably offer it as a download like most other companies.)

After I reformat my LG HDD video recorder to give me more space, it only clears a tiny portion. How do I clear the whole recorder? I am going to HDD format, and reformatting. Thanks


Hi,

Do you mean it always shows 10Gb less space than the capacity of the drive. ie only shows 150Gb but you have a 160Gb drive? The reason for this is that it has 10Gb reserved for the buffer of the pause/rewind live TV.

Cheers,

Keith

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.

It sounds like a bad antenna but coming from a land of only 5 stations across the country it's hard to give an answer. BMW
