Unfortunately unless the Universal remote is programmed specifically for your DVD layer, or any other piece of equipment, you are going to lose some of its abilities. The newer Universal remotes that are sold now allow you to go online and download specific files for specific units, and they will give you back a lot of the functionality you may have lost. Quite often if you get a TV that was built the same year as the DVD player the remote that it comes with will give you a lot of functions you may not normally see. At this point though it may be less expensive for you to buy a new DVD as the new Universal remotes that come with all of the functionality are expensive.
Are you talking about the wireless security password that allows you to establish a wireless connection? Or, are you talking about the CIFS login and password that allows you to see shared folders on your computer.
If you can't establish a wireless connection, try changing the type of security you currently have set up on your router. For example, if you are using WPA, try switching to WEP and see if you can then connect the BD570 to the router. As a last option, you could try turning off all security (for a brief time, of course) and see if the BD570 will connect to your router.
If you are having the dreaded CIFS login and password problem (and you are using a Win7 computer), uninstall Windows Live Login-Assistant and Windows Live Essential 2011. Both programs interfere with the ability to use CIFS file sharing on the BD570.
Can you ping the recorder from your computer on the network? In Windows, Start > All Programs > Accesssories > Command Prompt. At the prompt, type ping and the IP address of the recorder from the Start menu, Settings > Settings > System Information page. Press Enter after typing all 4 sections of the IP address. If you can't ping the recorder, I'd look for bad cables and connection issues with your router or modem (broadband or dial-up). Depending on your devices, you may be able to find a log file of the downtime.
Remember the guide takes a while to download, so if you are losing connectivity that could cause the failure. If you have your recorder, router and modem on an uninterruptible power supply, double check that they are plugged into the battery protected outlets and that the battery has sufficient charge to maintain the devices. Older UPS batteries will not keep a system running. Also check if your provider has been having downtime issues.
Check your Microsoft Program Guide subscription status.
I hope this helps.
Cindy Wells (Upstream downtime issues have sometimes been a problem for me. I have created a batch file to check if my router, DSL hub (the point where my local loop connects to the ISP's network), DNS servers and regularly accessed sites are available. This started as a text file then I did a file save as "pingisp.bat" (with the quotes). The text file has several lines: each starts with ping and either the IP numbers for each device (or location) or address of a site. The browsing to the router status page gave me most of the IP numbers I needed. Any site that is not connecting gives a site unreachable message for several attempts. Working sites report how long it took for the packet to return.)
My mother and sister both have the same problem. One unit is using wireless connection with a dlink adaptor which worked for a couple of years. The other has a direct connection over ethernet. Two separate homes and cable providers btw.
I think the problem is linked with the Zap2it website. The last successful download date was July 4th 2am EST 2010.
After calling LG they said many people were facing the same problem. They say the solution is to rerun the guide setup wizard. You will loose all your cable / remote control settings if you try this.
If you want to just check on your internet connection. Run 'Menu' -> 'Settings' -> Phone & Internet connection' then verify if you get an ip address with 'Menu' -> 'Settings' -> 'System Information'. Your ip address should not be all 0.0.0.0. I think it cant connect as the DNS server isn't listed so there isn't anyway the unit can resolve the Zap2it address.
I am in Atlanta and have a
Panasonic DVR that was working fine and sometime during the past month
or so we lost the channel listings. I've tried many resets as well with
I called Comcast tonight. The agent helping me
took a long time to research the issue and gave me this answer (which
sounds reasonable). By the way, this is for the Atlanta area and may
not be applicable to other areas of the country.
Due to delays
in the conversion to broadcast digital and the fact that Comcast is
experiencing bandwidth issues, they have digitized the "channel
listing" signal. By mid-June Comcast's signal will be all digital and
you won't be able to watch a TV connected directly to Comcast cable -
regardless of whether it has digital or analog tuner (or both). This is
contrary to what I'd heard before.
After mid-June, you'll either
need to use a cable box OR what she called a "Digital Transmitter
Adapter" (let's call it a DTA). Prior to being converted to "full"
digital, you'll get notification from Comcast. She said I'd be able to
get 2 DTAs at no charge (I currently have one Comcast HD DVR box).
Additional DTAs would be $1.99 a month. DTAs will only provide access
to the "basic" cable channels, but the good news is that the Panasonic
DVR should be able to obtain its channel lineup through this DTA box.

I had this problem. I found that when you record from the EPG it can change quite frequently. When this happenes then your recording will automatically get deleted. To sort this out I would use the Guide plus system on your box and then the problem wont occur any more
