LG DVD/HDD recorder RH2T80 hard disc problem

My LG DVD /HDD Recorder should insert Chapter Markers automatically as it records from TV Broadcasts on the hard drive. It does not, making it impossible to "Skip" thru the record when reviewing. Is this a fault in the machine or wrong info in the Manual? Please help!

    Thank you. I did not want to believe this, but it was eventually confirmed by the manufacturer's rep via the supplier, who also pointed out a somewhat clumsier way to achieve the "skipping" by way of the Display function. Thanks for your help.

My RH2T80 records chapter markers on the hard drive as well as DVD. Make sure that AUTO CHAPTER is not off. You can set it to 5, 10 or 15 minutes. To skip chapters while playing a recording you need to press the right triangle button next to the ENTER key. If you use the 'SKIP' keys - it will skip to the next recording and not SKIP chapters (a bit stupid really but when you know its simple).
I have other issues with this model and am trying to get a firmware update. Will never buy LG again.

"Auto Chapter" applies only to DVD recording, not the HDD. See page 23 of the user manual.

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?

Having trouble recording TV broadcast to DVD?

My LG DVD recorder was unreliable when recording TV broadcasts to "standard" DVD disks. Frequently it would begin recording a show and then stop with a copyright error message during some commercial. I rarely got a complete show. Very frustrating!

Solution: Buy some DVD-RAM disks and this machine will become totally reliable. They are hard to find and a little more expensive than +RW or -RW. Because of the copyright programming on this machine only DVD-RAM disks will work in VR (Video Recorder) mode.

The hard disk in the unit may be full. Try deleting some of the old recorded TV programs you don't need and see if DVD will burn.

Dubbing rom hdd to dvd

All you have to do is select dvd on the remote (at the top). Then it should do it automatically. If it doesn't, go to menu, then setup, disk, format. That does the job.
