    When recording from the tv to the accurian only get a picture, and no sound please provide insturctions on how to resolve this issue.

    To more fully understand the installation of the Accurian HDD/DVD recorder perhaps the following will help. The recorder and TV are hooked up to xfinity HD receiver. I also have an S video cable hooked up b etween the Accurian recorder and the Xfinity box thinkin that I should be able to receive the signal directly through the box. Still I receive video recording but no sound. I have recorded movies from cable previously but this was performed off an old TV and regular cable. My problem started after buying a new HD TV and upgrading to a an HD cable box. The movies recorded from the old set up can be played back and have sound. Any additional thoughts.

    Additionally, I can play pre-recorded DVD's with out problems. So, obviously the machine is capable of providing sound.

Can you record from a smart tv with arecording box

First of all you need to check if your TV supports recording. Some 2010 models do and most 2011 have it implemented. Look for stickers or logos such as:
  • USB Recording
  • PVR (Personal Video Recorder)
  • DVR (Digital Video Recorder

  • The following manufacturers support it in some of their models. Typically mid-end to high-end models. Check the manufacturer web site if you are unsure.
  • Samsung
  • Sony
  • LG
  • Philips
  • Panasonic
  • Toshiba
  • Sharp (only Time Shift pausing)
  • Grundig

    What you need

    Many consumers have USB recording enabled TVs without actually using the function - simply because it requires an extra USB hard drive ou need the following:
    1. USB Recording: A HDTV that supports recording.
    2. A USB HDD: FlatpanelsHD uses a USB HDD from Transcend.
    3. Digital channels: Recording is only enabled on digital channels - not analog. You can record SD, HD and 3D.
    Some manufacturers recommend USB hard drives with external power supplies but we have used a Trandscend USB HDD that takes power from the USB plug on all manufacturers' TVs without any problems. Manufacturers typically allow 1:1 recording, meaning that you will see no loss in picture quality.

    How to set up USB Recording

    Once you have purchased a USB hard drive and connected it on the back of the TV you can move on to "pairing" the USB HDD with the TV. Here is how to set up USB recording.

  • Connect the USB HDD to a free USB port on the back of the TV.
  • The USB hard drive now needs to be formatted (all data will be deleted).
  • Most TVs help you to format the USB HDD automatically but on some models you need to enter the menu and select format HDD (or something similar)

    My LG DVB-T HDD/DVD Recorder will not play or record sound via TV Channels!

    If the TV source is separate from the recorder, there has to be a physical connection between the two. From your description it seems there is a video connection, but what about audio?

    As a beginner, i would like to connect seagate external drive to tv and use as a recorder

    You can't connect a hard drive to a tv and record to it even if you have a usb port on the tv. The tv will read from the usb port pictures and music but it will not record to it. The tv does not have any software built into it that will let you use the usb port as a personal video recorder. It won't work.

    Recording from my vcr to the dvd hardrive

    It may be that the tape you are trying to record from is copy-protected. You will then get a "scrambled" picture
