Question about LG RH188

Open Question

Timeshift automatically activates!

I have an Lg rh 188 wich I am otherwise pleased with, but suddenly it started timeshifting on its own. When I start up It does the usual hard-disc check, and in a couple of secends it starts buffering and then the timeshift kicks in. It also stops when I watch anyting from the hard drive and wants to start timeshift again. If I watch a film on dvd-record the red stop-sign shows every five seconds indicating that the player wants to start a process (probably timeshift?) Whats wrong? Is this problem known to anyone else? Greatful for any help. There is one more thing that could possibly have to do with this problem. The buttons on the player stopped working a few months ago. Everyone except the power button. The remote still works. Could this have do with each other or what? Help please?

    When I turn the player on it starts timeshifting. This fenomenon started after I had moved the player from its normal place to our living room and back. All the cables were disconnected and connected again.


    Thanks in advance for help.

SOURCE: transferring from timeshift buffer to hdd

When in timeshift, press record on the remote (every time you push "record" 30 minutes are added) and make sure the program you are recording is not macro protected. If your program has already finished rewind to the beginning of the program and push record the correct number of times to cover your program and then press stop on the remote. It should then be at the bottom of your hard drive list.

SOURCE: dvd/vcr recorder stops recording

DVD-RAM itself, and DVD-R formatted in "VR" mode are SUPPOSED to allow for recording "ONE TIME" per DRMA. The broadcasters are probably sending the wrong copy protection signal if the -RAM & -R/VRmode are stopping.
At least, that is my understanding.

How do I record a programme/film on my Samsung smart TV without having to watch what I'm recording and also how do I record more than one thing on at the same time.


This is not possible, samsung tv do not have a recorder per say it is a timeshift function. So you can only record one channel at the same time. If you need this kind of thing try using TiVo or some service that your ISP provider offers.

Timer programming problem


Check to see that you have not changed the default choice for input on power up of the box the "timeshift default device". If you have it set to front or rear CVBS or S-video input, it may ignore the channel choice you make when setting up the recording.
