The pass word is factory default 888888,seems someone was able to reset it by pushing one to many buttons,so I hve locked the adjustment to a password and not locked the channels or you have to put a password in every time you want to change channels

Can you record from a smart tv with arecording box


First of all you need to check if your TV supports recording. Some 2010 models do and most 2011 have it implemented. Look for stickers or logos such as:
  • USB Recording
  • PVR (Personal Video Recorder)
  • DVR (Digital Video Recorder

  • The following manufacturers support it in some of their models. Typically mid-end to high-end models. Check the manufacturer web site if you are unsure.
  • Samsung
  • Sony
  • LG
  • Philips
  • Panasonic
  • Toshiba
  • Sharp (only Time Shift pausing)
  • Grundig

    What you need

    Many consumers have USB recording enabled TVs without actually using the function - simply because it requires an extra USB hard drive ou need the following:
    1. USB Recording: A HDTV that supports recording.
    2. A USB HDD: FlatpanelsHD uses a USB HDD from Transcend.
    3. Digital channels: Recording is only enabled on digital channels - not analog. You can record SD, HD and 3D.
    Some manufacturers recommend USB hard drives with external power supplies but we have used a Trandscend USB HDD that takes power from the USB plug on all manufacturers' TVs without any problems. Manufacturers typically allow 1:1 recording, meaning that you will see no loss in picture quality.

    How to set up USB Recording

    Once you have purchased a USB hard drive and connected it on the back of the TV you can move on to "pairing" the USB HDD with the TV. Here is how to set up USB recording.

  • Connect the USB HDD to a free USB port on the back of the TV.
  • The USB hard drive now needs to be formatted (all data will be deleted).
  • Most TVs help you to format the USB HDD automatically but on some models you need to enter the menu and select format HDD (or something similar)

    I have just aquired a th50phd30 panasonic lcd monitor. It has no scart or hdmi connections. Also when I switch it on it display s colourful barcodes. I m tryin to wire it up to my set top box. I tried vga...


    Since your TV is not coming with HDMI, the only way you can connected is trough CONVERTER ANALOG TO DIGITAL.

    You can buy surface by Internet, or Radio Schack, or Computer Stores.

    I purchased a Grundig GUD1500XI2 Digital Freeview Box for my old small TV. Unfortunately it insists on filling the TV screen on 4.3 ratio by cutting off the sides of the picture. If 16.9 is selected it...


    Please remember all modern Digital Set Top boxes are designed with HD LCD/Plasma TV's in mind. Their default aspect ratio is 16 : 9. The reverse was possible- LCD/Plasma allow you to change their viewing aspect ratio from 16 : 9 to 4:3 ( some models also allow 14:9 ).
    You will have to return the box if it makes it intolerable for you to watch geometric distortions !!

    Why wont my tv tune in the digital chanels using just an Ariel, its a Grundig about 6 years old.


    Unless you have built in freeview then you won't be able to receive digital channels. Sounds like that's the problem here.
    You'll need to buy a separate freeview box, you can get a basic model for ~£20.

    Grundig GUFSDTR500HD FreeSat PVR Problem


    Hi There, I've never had this problem with my Sky box, it knows which programs are repeats. I suspect its a problem with the GUFSDTR500HD. I have had two of these boxes from Costco, and both have both been as buggy as hell. They have recorded random programmes, they have missed recording programs, they often crash (black screen), series link seems to get it's knickers in a twist, and the up and down directional buttons fail to work after coming out of the guide or menu screen. To top it off, I found that the remote control also interferres with my B&Q fireplace... cycling through the colours when I change channel. Both of these boxes have gone back to Costco and I will never touch another Harvard Group (previously Alba, including Bush/Goodmans/Grundig) box again. Back to sky HD for me!
