Question about LG DR787T DVD Recorder

1 Answer

LG LCD TV remote power button turns off LG DVD Recorder as well

I have an LG LCD TV and an LG DVD Recorder. If I am recording a show and decide to turn off the TV but leave the show recording, pressing power on the TV remote (or the console) turns off the power to the DVD recorder as well and then all that gets recorded is a black screen. The problem also seems to happen if I am timer recording a show, if the TV is not on then all that gets recorded is a black screen.
Does anyone know how I can stop this?

Need code for Viore TV to program LG RC897T DVD/VHS Recorder


I believe Viore is the same as Samsung. I only noticed this by accident as I bought a Viore TV and my friend bought a Samsung and I noticed both remotes were identical. I tried the Samsung codes and the remote worked. Good luck! Kevin

LG DVD Recorder- Clock settings Model RH277H


The clock settings will only be retained if you power down the unit via the On/Off button on the remote or on the unit i.e. put the unit into standby mode. If you switch off mains power the clock settings are lost as there is no backup battery in the unit. Power consumption on standby is negligible.
