Little transparent box with 2 in top right hand corner of screen

We just had a hdtv dvr cable box hooked up and now there's a transparent box with a #2 in the top right corner. When you turn the cable box off it stays on the tv so it's got to be a tv issue right? anyone else had this problem? Please help!! I have the 42" LG and the same thing happened. I'm not sure when the box appeared, but it took place while connecting the HD box. I've exhausted what seems to be all possible menu options to get this box to go away.

Sounds like a possible "burn in" issue. Although rare, seems like a rash of these are happening to the same model.

HDTV CABLE NOT HOOKED UP/WORKING


COMP 1 and 2 are for 480i/p sources. Hook it to the 1080i capable on the back. Also make sure the HD DVR is outputting 1080i not 720p. The Mits can not disply 720p and will show a scrambled screen if you try to.

Stubborn 2 in corner of screen


You have the picture in picture on and the second picture is black because there is no input source plugged into the second input.

In your manual, look up the picture in picture functions and how to control them. you should also be able to change that second picture to see the main feed and swap between them.

Good Luck,
Charles

Connecting HD cable box to DVR too HDTV


When I hooked up my HD cable box using an HDMI cable, I had to go into the cable screen menus and select HDMI output. You may have to do something similar when using an S-video cable. Your DVD recorder doesn't seem to have an HDMI input, so you'll have to use the S-video or (worst case) composite video (red, white, yellow cords). Your cable box may also be scrambling the signal so that you can't record. That may be why you can record by bypassing the cable box.
