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.

What format is your tv? SD, PAL NTSC HD 720 1080i 1080p, 50Hz?? Check the back of the game box to see what formats are supported.

Timeshift


-- If you do have a legal version...
First check and see if your "Caps Lock" is on?
Be absolutely sure that you are entering the registration code EXACTLY as printed, Use CAPITAL LETTERS as printed, and lower case letters as required.
If it still won't work....
Call TimeShift and explain the situation, have a magnifying glass handy to read the tiny engraved lettering in the center of the CD disk.
If you have some kind of sales receipt, or other "Proof of Purchase" have it handy too.
They can create a new product key for you.
This method will only work if you have a legal copy of the program.
