I recently bought an LG RHT599 digital TV recorder with 500Gb hard drive and DVD burner, the problem is I am unable to play all my VCDs that i had been using before. I can only play DVDs. I also cannot...


Unless it states in the user manual that it can play VCDs I think it's safe to say that it doesn't surport that format. Without knowing what connections the Cable TV has, I can't help there. But this scart switching box might help. You can get them on places such as Amazon. It also has video and phono RCA sockets.

Yes you can record any TV show HD or SD, however it depends on what connections you use and what the recorder does with the input signals. You can record HD shows but not in HD resolution if you connect using composite video (yellow RCA cable) you just get a down-converted resolution, probably 480. You must use a HDMI or a component video connection for HD BUT if the recorder cannot record HD video, it should just record it in SD resolution but it should record the input signal. DVD is not HD, you would have to go to Blu-ray for HD and there are not many Blu-ray recorders around. The hard drive has the potential to record in HD but the recorder would have to process HD signals and you would have to connect with HDMI or component video. I would say your Toshiba will record an HD show but in SD resolution. I don't think the recorder has an HDMI input or a component video input. Just composite and S-video inputs. To actually record in HD you should look at another recorder.

I have a sky+ hd box connected to an lg 42LH300 tv through hdmi and an LG HT805SH home cinema through optical cable. Whenever i turn sky over i lose sound and have to turn cinema on/off to sound returns ...


One of the way to connect the whole system is using only HDMI cable version 1.3a. There is audio return channel built into the cable.So you do not have to connect the optic cable.
Sky box to TV using HDMI
LG HT805 to TV using HDMI. Even the Sky box audio will come back to the LG-HT through the audio return path.

I have surroundsound. I have dish network with hd dvr. I have a sony bravia hd tv. I have a dvd player, and cd player. I have a magnavox dvd recorder. I want to record from my dvr to my dvd recorder. ...


To get the functionality you're looking for you'll need to to take the cable running from your DVR output and connect it to the input on your DVD recorder. Next you want to connect a cable from your DVD recorder output and connect it to your TV. If this is an HD set up you want to use HD Cables for all of the connections.

How to fit new dvd drive in LG RH7796W DVD 250gig recorder? I've had a serviceman tell me that the 250g HDD needs replaced. I do not want to pay $300 I would sooner have a go myself. Thanks


Open up your LG Recorder. You should see the HDD on the left, the DVD drive in the middle and a circuit board on the right..

Now, look at the back of the dvd drive.. you should see a power connector and a standard IDE interface..

Remove both of those connections carefully. Remove the screws in the black bevels on the sides of the drive and slowly pry out the drive by lifting the IDE interface side above the main board and pulling it out while slipping out the black clips on top of the tray side..

Now that it is done, take your new dvd drive.. you may want to remove the faceplate or at least the plate from the tray ..(slide it upwards.. it should slip out ) .. Place it where the old dvd drive used to be.. do the connections and your good to go..

Before closing, Check to see if the drive is functioning. Close up.

I have swapped drives on my LG many times and even upgraded the HDD.. I have used mainly LG and sony drives..

Mine was originally shipped with 80GB some 3 years ago.. I had put in a 160 GB and now will be putting in a 250 GB as the other is already full and i like to keep those old recordings..

Hookup wrong? I can't get the menu to come up for the VR375


New HD tv. Have digital cable box connected to tv., cable box connected to DVD recorder, but can't get setup menu to come up on tv screen. I had a similar problem. I have a HD tv connected to a digital cable box. I hooked up the DVD recorder with the wires it came with, but it would not play or give me the menu. However it was correctly hooked up. So the next day I connected a HDMI wire from the DVD recorder to the tv and everything works now.

Problems establishing audio output from DVD RW to TV


If you own a Digital Video Recorder, such as TiVo, or a DVR from a Cable or Satellite provider, then you know you can record to the device's hard drive to view TV shows at a later time, much like the old VCR. However, saving those TV shows becomes difficult as the Hard Drive starts to fill up. The answer to saving your shows is to record them to DVD! This can be accomplished easily by hooking up a DVD Recorder to your DVR
Here's How:
  1. 1)record a TV show on your DVR that you want to save to DVD!
  2. 2)Turn on the DVR, DVD Recorder and the TV that the DVD Recorder is connected to. In my case, I have my Samsung DVD Recorder (no hard drive) hooked up to my TV via an RCA Audio/Video cable from the rear outputs on the DVD Recorder to the rear RCA inputs on my TV. I use a seperate DVD Player for playing DVDs, but if you use your DVD Recorder as a player as well, use the best cable connections you can to connect to the TV. See the articleTypes of A/V Cables for more info.
  3. 3)Connect an S-Video or RCA video cable and composite stereo cables (red and white RCA plugs) from the DVR to the inputs on your DVD Recorder. If your TV has Component inputs, connect the Component Out from the DVD Recorder to the Component In on the TV, otherwise you can use S-Video or Composite. You will still need to use RCA audio with your video connection.
  4. 4)Change the input on your DVD Recorder to match the inputs you are using. Since I'm using the rear S-Video input, I change my input to "L1", which is the input for recording using the rear S-Video input. If I was recording using the front analog cables it would be "L2", the front Firewire input, "DV". The input select can typically be changed using the DVD Recorder remote.

I would use the Sky box manuals recommendations for connection as this usually gives the best performance especially if you wish to record from Sky to the DVD recorder.

My LG LRH-880 HDD/DVD recorder sometimes stops recording by itself, before the end of the programming and even if there is enough disk space left.


Somehow, my HDD/DVD recorder recorded correctly 2 times last night, even if I did not do anything specific to fix. I will keep an eye on new occurences of this problem, but it appears at the moment that the issue disappeared by itself.
