    I have a cable box, Sony HD TV, and the LG DVD/VCR model as stated above. Cable Box and remote are Motorola brand. Can run the TV and the LG unit from the remote, play DVDs, but cannot timer record to a VCR. It actually comes on and records, but get nothing but snow. The Manual says to set the LG to the channel you want to record, but I do not know how to do that. Do I have to use the IR control Cable (whatever that is) to get this to record?

SOURCE: dvd/vcr recorder stops recording

I finally got word back from a pal at LG regarding this issue as where I work we are getting these and as of Friday had about 18 to 20 units with this issue.


LG told us that this has to do with the encoding with the commercials (a one time record issue) on the one time record disks (DVD-R and DVD+R) now their "TEMP" fix for this is to used DVD-RAM or DVD-RW disks (these are not regular -RW they have a encoding CPMsomething I don't remember right now) but they will update us when they have a permanent solution. I will get the type of disk for the -RW on monday and post it here for everyone.

SOURCE: LG RC797T Won't read disks

I had this problem last year. It had to be sent back to the company to replace the entire dvd unit; however, I found that it probably had been caused by electrical surges. Once I got it back after repair (replacement) I put the best possible surge protector I could buy on it and have not had a problem with that issue again. The idea of a surge problem came about because I blew 3 Onkyo stereos while still in warranty several years ago and they did the same thing- would not read discs, would say no disc, etc. & the protector ended the problem.

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.

SOURCE: connecting LG DVD recorder to cable box and HGTV digitally

Two things come to mind: copy protection and resolution settings.
The TV may not allow copy protected material to come from your LG, or the sampling frequency may be unacceptable. On page 15 of the manual it talks about 96kHz and 48kHz frequency settings. The third thing to check is the vertical resolution using the RES button on the front panel. SDTV is 480, and HDTV is anything above that. Using the HDMI is supposed to allow upconvert to 1080i max if your set can use that resolution.

I had a new high def tv installed.the cable company hooked up there box .now i cant record anything on the vhs.


Hello,

was the VHS recording before the new high definition TV was installed? Or are you trying to say that the cable company has tempered with the settings of the VHS?

Probably, the cable company, has removed the cable for the player. Check the back of the player and let me know if the cable between the player and the TV are intact.

The above needs to be verified for accurate solution.

I look forward to your reply.

Bye for now.

No picture - only sound


Ok, on a hi-def tv, you must have a converter box capable of receiving Hi-def. If you are using a converter box from a satalite or cable tv service, try getting a Hi-def box. Also try hooking a vcr or dvd player to the tv in the non high def ports to varify that this is the problem. If you have any question please let me know, I hope this helps, good luck.

Recording HD channels


well you would need to hook up cable box to dvd recorder. the only draw back first off is one you cannot get hd onto a dvd. you can down scale and it will seem a little cleaner than standard def but of coarse it will never be high def. I'm not to familiar with the motorola boxes but if they offer dvr's in your area i would suggestgetting one you can record all channels then afterwards transfer them to a outside device. but as i said before high def cannot fit onto a dvd unless you plan to copy one movie to 6-7 disc. Just keep in mind a standard high def channelcan only fit 2 max on one freq due to the amount of data transfer as opposed to 10 to 12 standard def digital channels

Poor viewing with VCR


how do you have the combo connection and dish network hooked to the tv ? if you have an s-video , yellow RCA jack video or component video hooked to the same input then it will act this way, because two inputs cannot be on the same video input # on the tv.
is this what is happening? or how are you connecting it?

Display delay


This is unlikely Verizon's problem.

Does the delay occur with non-TV sources like DVD player or video games?

If so, that's the LG firmware.

TV / DVD Recorder HDMI issue


By default most HDMI DVD players are set to produce their picture output on the Scart connection. This allows configuration of the device on all TVs.

However your manual should tell you (Probably in techno speak) what you need to do so switch it to HDMI mode.

I don;t have a copy but I am searching for it on the net. If I find out how I will let you know.

Dvd player, hd dvd movies


If this is just a regular DVD player, then no. You need an HD DVD player to play HD DVD discs. Now the HD DVD players should play regular DVD discs.
