Good product, but the manual is rubbish.

Check out 'dubbing' in the 'manual' andthis will more or less explain how to record from VHS to a recordable disc.

Also check out 'finalizing a disc' on the onscreen menu to be able to play the disc on any other player.

Finalize the disc within the on screen menu. That's it.

SOURCE: how do I unlock my LG RC388 to play other region disks

YES, it can be changed to view all regions. I've just done my new RC388 (bought it 4 hours ago) and it works.

To start the hack:
Click the home button on the remote, go to the Setup page, highlight the 16X9 TV aspect ratio and enter in this coded sequence: 1 3 9 7 1 3 9

A new factory menu now comes up on the screen.

To change the values of these options hit the enter button and scroll with arrow keys until you get to the option you want to change. For the region code hack replace the value of "option 5" with the value of: ff

Press enter.

(Changing this value will set unit to region code 0 which should allow any region to be played on the player.)

Now, hit the "return" button to save and exit.

Switch off the machine - switch on - all is well now.

Good Luck,
Will

How do I get the DVD to record what is on the VHS tape not the TV?


You can record from an external component, such as a camcorder or VCR, connected to any of the Recorder's external inputs.
1. Make sure that the component you want to record from is connected properly to the Recorder. See page 14.

2. Press AUX repeatedly to select the external input to record from.
• AV1: Audio/Video Input mounted on back panel.
• AV2: Audio/Video Input mounted on front panel.
• DV: DV Input mounted on front panel.

page 37 from manual:

If this fails, try to disconnect the tv input cable and connect the vcr cable.

Try these steps:

Locate the output jacks DVD player. Sometimes they are standard female RCA A/V jacks, like those found on the front of many VCRs. Others are more tricky, having a small jack that looks like a stereo headphones plug. These camcorders require a special cord that converts a 1/8" stereo signal into RCA A/V male plugs.
  1. Using the proper cord, connect your PLAYER to the VCR's RCA A/V input jacks, usually found on the front or back of your VCR.
  2. Turn on your VCR and TV, so you can see the input from the camcorder. You might have to select "Input 1/2", "Line 1/2", or "VIDEO" depending on your VCR model. You should now see whatever is on your camcorder displayed on your television.
  3. Press "Record" on your VCR, then press "Play" on your camcorder. That's it!

CAN I RECORD FROM A VHS ONTO A CD OR DVD WITH MY STEREO?


In short, NO. Stereos are for playing not recording.

If your stereo has a DVD recorder and a video/audio input then you should be able to use it. I dont know of many stand alone "stereos" that do this. In general, stereos only deal with audio, but newer stereos and receivers can handle video as well, but usually are just PLAYERS not RECORDERS.

If not, then you will need to connect your VHS to a stand alone DVD recorder. You could also connect your VHS to a computer with the proper adapters (USB, firewire, etc) and software, and then record the VHS video to the computer. Afterwards you can then make a CD or DVD of the video.

A stand alone DVD recorder is much easier.

hook the video output from vcr to dvd input at rear, then hook output from dvd to tv input. note; you can not record protected vcr movies you can only record tv shows from sattelite to vcr or dvd recorder. its best to record straight from sattelite to dvd recorder for picture clarity.

Dvd Recorders


Most DVD recorders have a "Scart" input. I assume your VHS has one also. conect a scart lead form the VHS to "Input" scart on DVD recorder. Select the "scource" of viewing on the DVD to "Scart", press record on the DVD and "Play" on the VHS and away you go. You should be able to view whats happening on your T.V. when you select the scart that the DVD is connected to on it.

It's a protected video. The VRD-MC5 will not burn a VHS or input that has been protected.

Recording Snow


If you hook your VCR up to the RCA jacks on the front of the DVD recorder, push 002 on the remote to use the front input jacks. (001 if you hook your VCR up to the rear input jacks)

Push record on the DVD recorder, and push Play on the VCR.
(Pg. 35 in the manual)

When you push play on the VCR, you should be able to see the movie being played on your TV. If you cannot, make sure your RCA cables are good and hooked up correctly.

That's all you have to do, so if it's not recording I would try to take the unit back for an exchange.
