    hi .. its an LG RH7500 hdd dvd recorder.. any help would be great.. cheers

  • dowey Jul 26, 2008

    after a couple of restarts it has now sound for telly but has no picture just a split black and white screen. so frustrating

    its being used in uk

    im using a scart lead

  • dowey Jul 26, 2008

    i have tried the scart lead in both outputs in back of unit

  • dowey Jul 26, 2008

    im not totaly sure on that .. its a 20 pin lead

  • dowey Jul 26, 2008

    yes its set to RGB on back

  • dowey Jul 26, 2008

    yes it is .. i use the unit as a reciever as the television is just a monitor

  • dowey Jul 26, 2008

    i am now seeing wavey lines and would possibly be able to blindly unset the progressive scan if i knew the sequence to use on the menu eg. menu once then right arrow once then down four? etc. .. i have torn the house apart looking for my manual but having recently moved house this is nowhere to be seen

  • dowey Jul 26, 2008

    i managed to hook unit up to a portable tv using video and audio leads in back and although it was in split screen i managed to switch off the progressive scan ... thanks very much for taking to time to reply to me .. i think in future i wont be pressing buttons just to see wat they do hehe



    take care

It says in the book that the video output jack has to be set to RGB when using the SCRAT jack. Is that the correct setting?

    This is connected to a TV with a scrat input on it?

  • Tim Babcock
    Tim Babcock Jul 26, 2008

    Looks like that might be possible. I don't think its the player though. it could be the TV.

    Is there another way you can hook the player up to your tv? like the av ports?

Hi, I've a small problem cocerning this dv-363 player. I accidentally set it to 'progressive'. Now I cannot undo. I tried holding the buttons on remote and on machine itself, still not working, can you...


Progressive Scan is a menu option relating to video output of this player. Assuming you have the original DVD remote, this should be easy.

* From the user manual (pages 50-51 of the pdf document):

About progressive scan video
Compared to interlace video, progressive
scan video effectively doubles the scanning
rate of the picture, resulting in a very stable,
flicker-free image. Progressive scan video is
available only from the component video
output.

If you connect a TV that is not compatible
with a progressive scan signal and switch
the player to progressive, you will not be
able to see any picture at all. In this case,
switch everything off and reconnect using
the supplied video cable (see Easy
connections on page 14), then switch
back to Interlace. Switch the player to
standby then, using the front panel
controls, press STANDBY/ON while
pressing 'back to Interlace.

Hold these 2 buttons together for about 10-15 seconds or so, but only while the player is in standby mode. *

If you have lost the manual, you may be able to download the user guide (as an adobe reader (pdf) document) from:

http://www.retrevo.com/support/Pioneer-DV-363-K-DVD-Players-manual/id/385bh937/t/2/

(it will ask you for an email address prior to downloading - use a blank address if possible and enter the security code in the fields then save the document)

If the above suggestion does not switch it back to interlace, you will need a TV with progressive scan function to enable you to access the player's on-screen menu and in 'Initial Settings' 'Video Output' 'Component Out' section, select 'Interlace'. and press OK from remote as required.

Either way, it should NOT require a workshop service, and is simple enough to do at consumer level with the right TV type.

RDR-GX315 was accidentally reverted to "Factory Settings" ... now we can get sound but no picture and progressive is turned on and we need to turn it off.


If your TV has progressive scan capability, you may be able to view the on-screen setup menu via the recorder - select 'SETUP' press 'ENTER' on your DVD recorder's remote to bring up the menu - with the remote arrow buttons, scroll down to select 'VIDEO' then 'PROGRESSIVE' - highlight it then set it to OFF (you cannot do this with a TV that does not support progressive scan from this unit). Once done, exit the setup menu and it should work fine with all the other settings. If your TV doesn't have progressive scan, connect the DVD recorder to one which does and turn its progressive output off there. I assume you still have the user manual for your recorder (if not, you can download it online for free as an Adobe document - .pdf. Page 73 details the setup steps for this model). I hope this tip helps somewhat.

Stop Substitles on a LG RHT497H 160G dvd recorder?


I have the LG DVD recorder DRT389H which has the same problem. You can't switch off the subtitles during timer recording from the Electronic Programme Guide. The only way I could stop this was to go to the main set-up menu then select the A icon. Select DTV Subtitle and choose a language that the TV programme isn't broadcast in. I chose Gaelic. The only disadvantage is that this stops any subtitles being recorded so you can't access them later.

Recording with closed caption


Carl,
Better late than.. I think that the Polo can record the encoded closed captioning onto the HDD, but you have to have a CC equipped television to display the captioning.
The newer Magnavox and Philips recorders sold at Walmart record the captioning, and have the capability to display it even on sets without the built in CC decoder depending upon your recording settings. If you get a digital converter box and connect that as the source to your Polo, you can record CC displayed on the screen if you want.

PROGRESSIVE SCAN


Get into the menu, select aspect ratio or picture size and look for 1080i, 720i or whatever your DVD support. Whichever one DVD supports you don't want to select option with "p", but with "i"

Problem


return the setting back to 480i, your in progressive scan and your tv is not excepting the signal. your manual should tell you how. there may be a button on the remote or switch in the back of the unit or some sequence of commands to switch in to 480i. all DVD players are different in how this change is made. p.scan means progressive scan which is line doubling the picture standard tv's can not scan that high (EDTV's are 31.5KHz, standard tv's are 15.75KHz).

My sanyo dwm-3900 is on progressive scan mode how do i fix this


Hi,

If your DVD players is set to Progressive Scan Mode, tehn ther would be a light indicating it is so. The light is labeled P?scan on the bottom right side of your display window.

You can disable/turn OFF the P/Scan mode in the "Setup menu".

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Dubbing rom hdd to dvd


All you have to do is select dvd on the remote (at the top). Then it should do it automatically. If it doesn't, go to menu, then setup, disk, format. That does the job.
