Samsung DVD-SH855 DVD Recorder 250GB HDD playback freezes

New DVDR unit connected to recent Samsung LCD TV via HDMI cable, TV digital reception is A1. When playing back HDD recording the image stutters and freezes. Took DVDR back to store and exchanged for another new unit - still does the same. Tried it on another Samsung LCD TV - same problem.
Spoke to Samsung Tech on first occasion and did not get any solution.

After having this problem with the new DVD-SH855 DVD Recorder 250GB HDD , I took it back to the store and exchanged for another identical unit - had exactly the same issues with the second on. Took it back and exchanged for a Panasonic which has worked 100% OK from the outset.

Can't tune in tv with dvd freeview.it states ext link problem


If you've connected the DVD to the TV via HDMI or SCART you shouldn't need to 'tune it in', just select the HDMI or SCART input. If your TV is also a Freeview device and you want to tune it to Freeview, where you have the aerial connected to the DVD recorder, you need to also connect the DVD recorder to the TV via an RF cable or aerial flylead so that the aerial signal passes through the DVD recorder. It's all in the instructions

You have probably found out now that you would need to get your digital reception by connecting a set top box to the LG, say to AV1, then select AV1 when making a recording.

Did the return yesterday. They plugged it in and did a playback in the shop to check what I meant. They claimed to be surprised. Anyway got my new unit home and was testing it out. It seemed to have the same problem. Meanwhile the sales guy rang to say they had tried it in the shop and that it might be my reception.

I got a reception booster and so far it has recorded what i have programmed. Playback quality is still a bit patchy at times.
Now I have to think about my next move.
