You can record from its audio-video out, to connecting it to the audio-video in of any recording instrument through a AV cable connected in between. For more details, refer its user manual.

SOURCE: usb harddisk problem on LG 50PT81+ not compatibel XP

LG have created a solution that only allows you to backup to a hard disk in the format that they have created.
The hard disk can not then be read by a computer as they only recognize formats such as NTFS, FAT or FAT32: not LG´s format!!!

If you reformat the disk in FAT32 format then you can copy files to the hard disk and see your photos, or certain types of DIVX files and listen to music via your TV,......BUT...you can not save TV programs from the TV to the same hard disk UNLESS you allow the TV to reformat the hard disk to LG´s format ) in which case you will lose all the files you previously had on the hard disk.

In practice LG have created a backup solution that is of little use to most users particularly bearing in mind that the backup takes almost as long as the original programs and as long again to restore.

Most of LG´s products are very clever and have a tendency to be in advance of the market.

However on this occasion LG almost had a good idea but many users are going to feel tricked like I did,

SOURCE: CANNOT FORMAT THE HDD

The HDD on this set is a SATA drive. It connects directly to the main board on the set. You can take the drive out of the set and format it on your PC, if it formats then replace the main board. If it will not format replace with a SATA drive of similar size.

SOURCE: after I reformat my LG HDD video recorder to give me more space, it only clears a tiny portion. How do I clear the whole recorder? I am going to HDD format, and reformatting. Thanks

Hi,

Do you mean it always shows 10Gb less space than the capacity of the drive. ie only shows 150Gb but you have a 160Gb drive? The reason for this is that it has 10Gb reserved for the buffer of the pause/rewind live TV.

Cheers,

Keith

Contact your LG dealer first as the software version of your TV would need to be checked. Most likely the software needs updated which can only be done by a service engineer.

SOURCE: we have a lg 47inch

On your sky remote select interactive button, go too customer services and select option 5 , setting up sky remote, you should be able to find lg codes to try there. If not then try the internet for codes. You may have to wait though I didnt get my code for 6 months after getting new tv, but dont give up.

So.... Who uses a VCR any more. They are ancient history.
They don't last forever so perhaps it's time to think ahead....

The modern way to Record video is to use a Hard Disk Drive Recorder rather than a VCR. They have a built in tuner and can record 2 stations at once and have a built in Electronic Program Guide. The EPG info is transmitted with the Digital TV transmission from the broadcaster.
I bought one 2 weeks ago for an old 85yo friend so he could record late night stuff and play back later. He still uses the VCR but only for old VHS Tape playback. I got him a TEAC HDR9650TS Digital Video Recorder and I picked it up new for Aus$188.

Main Features:
DVB-T Twin Digital Turners
DVR Recording: Record three channels while watching a 4th from same network Smart Series Record feature to record a whole series at a touch of a button
2.5" Sata Hard disk: 500GB

HDMI Digital Output
Digital Audio Output
CVBS/YPbPr/SPDIF connectors

I guess you mean a Set Top Box to convert digital TV transmission to old analog TV. Choose the correct video format for your screen.
Ah... Perhaps Your recording at an old standard & passing it to a modern TV or HD TV with the digital output from 1080 HD to 720 or lower still.
OR
Get a Digital Hard Drive recorder.....

Reset password


Sometimes, passwordprotection is just a software-issue. In such case you can consider to hook this harddisk to another computer, to see if this protection is still active.
If it is, than it might some software located at your external harddisk. If it does, it's good to verify if it is loaded by a .ini-file.
Windows, for example is default set to check for new hardware, and if it is a harddisk, to explore it in the background. If there's an ini-file in the root, it'll read this file, which might link to a program to activate (located at your harddisk). If you're able to remove this file, you've overcome this protection.
For this, you need to go to "start" and then enter the following command : "cmd" or "command" (without the " ").
NOTE : I don't know which type of Windows you use. Some Windows-versions expect cmd, some command.
If you succeeded, a window will pop-up, with black text. Then go to the specific drive. If your drive is known as D-drive, enter "D:"
Than enter "dir autorun.ini" .
If you see this file is present, then delete this file by :
"delete d:\autorun.ini".
If succeeded type "exit"
Finally, reboot your PC and see if your protection is gone.

Cannot read or reformat my 500gb buffalo external hard drive


download Acronis Disk Director Suite via torrent. install the program. open the application. locate the drive that is not working. usually its labeled "unallocated". click on the "Acronis Recovery Expert" button. and again select the drive you want to recover/fixed. there are instructions on how you want the program to run its recovery. its pretty simple. bare in mind before running the application. your hard drive should be connected directly to your PCs USB port and not by any hubs. by this. your computer should be able to read your HD again.

Portable hard drives are extremely useful. Make sure you have both HD cords connected correctly One coming from your HD to your PC and the other as a power cord. From there, you should simply click "Start" go to "My Computer" and your external drive should show up right there.

Check the usb port function in the computer bios settings and be sure that it is set to yes. Connect properly your external drive. If it has two wire usb connections, use both to obtain the maximum power that will be need by your drive.
