Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have an LG 32LH20D TV, about three months old so still under warranty. I have a Topfield Freeview HD STB w/500 recorder (also new) and a Digitrex GK 1800 DVD player attached. There is an intermittent problem with a vertical line which appears and disappears for no apparent reason, 9cm in from the right hand side of the screen (looking at it). Is there something wrong with my settings or must I call a technician?

Well, thats usually caused by a "Glitch" in the Vertical blanking cycle, whereby, sometimes, the Entire Row Drive, sticks on. This is not so much a fault, it could be caused by whatever signal is being displayed, IE: the Topview, or DVD, but, it would be unlikely, that, both would cause this problem. If it happens, regardless of "input" So this then points us back to the TV itself. Most likely, the set has some problem, in the vertical, drive, or Blanking, section. Seeing as the set is under warranty, I think, you should return the set, and get it attended to. if a replacement, can be had, than, that to my mind, is far better, that getting your unit repaired. It can happen, that a set like this can have this type of thing happen, usually, most/any problems show up withing the first 90 days of use.

Cant Tune my Topfield TF4000T STB on a Centrex 51cm TV


Is your aerial plugged to Antenna In (not RF In)? Is the Topfield new, or a few years old? Do you see the Topfield menus on the TV?

Anything new has a chance of failure the first month or so from cold solder joints on circuit boards. If it passes the first month it may last 8 or 12 years. Send it back under warranty.

How to record to my Sony SLV830 VCR from Sony Bravia 32" after digital switchover


You can't really record from the TV while watching something else. The only way to do that is to have two tuners. What you would need to do is get another converter box and connect that to the VCR, via the second VCR socket. But as you have a Satellite box, you will need to find a scart switching box like the one shown below (try Amazon for them).
This will allow you to connect all your items to the one TV.

Freeview


I think you are here in good old Oz?

Freeview is a collective advertising name for free-to-air stations, as opposed to Pay TV like Foxtel. So if you can already watch Ch 2, 7, 9, 10 etc etc through the STB you are watching Freeview.

About the only thing different in a Freeview STB from any other STB is that they disable any features which allow you to skip the advertising.

If you can't get a picture yet you should hook up the STB to the aerial as shown in the user guide, and then connect the aerial socket of the TV to the STB. Then turn it all on and select "Search" from the Menu on screen.

The STB should then find all clear stations you can get, and arrange them just as in the TV Guides.

LG RH266 setup with freeview tv


Sorry to say no it wont not unless the Tv set manuel says it has a Duel Freeview feed , you have to get another freeview box for the recorder .
besides If you used the freview in the tv 1 , the tv would have to be on when you wanted to record ?. and 2 you couldnt watch another channel whilst recording another .. only 1 tuner ?. also you could only record the program you had on .at the time no timer facility .
People are still used to the Old system of VHs and the fact that all videos had tuners built in so you could watch and record .. It will come and indeed some more modern DVD recorder have freeview built in again sorry but thats the facts , and dont forget if you want the pay per view channels on free view your going to need a tuner with a pay card port ... Regards Vortash
