Hi, The set top box will more than likely have two coaxial connectors ( threaded/ribbed pieces of metal ) coming out of the back. also three R.C.A. connectors-these will be smooth and be colored yellow red and white. one of the coax connectors will say " IN FROM ANT> or CABLE IN) the other ( OUT TO T.V. ) hook up your dvd recorders " ANTENNA " input to the set top box's ANTENNA output. If your D.V.D. recorder doesn't have an antenna input then hook up the recorders audio/video input to the set top box's audio/video output. then you should be good to go. If you buy a H.D.T.V. tuner to receive FREE H.D. programming it may be possible to hook up to recorder with H.D.M.I. cables.( those connections resemble slots ) I hope this has been of some assistance, good luck, Prodzilla.

I can no longer use Timer Record on my LG RH397D


use free to air tv aerials app (google or iphone in store) on your phone or tablet, this will help you line the aerial up with the transponder, that app also tells you the signal strength you should receive. as from recording on timer from av that was never a thought when recorders were made only transfer signal only.

I have just bought a 40 inch HD LCD TV, I want to purchase a combo VCR/DVD HD to be able to record channel 11(the new free to air channels HD). Big W gave the model No. RC 689 D to me but they were not...


The VCR/DVD combo that you purchased will be able to record what you wish to a VHS tape at low quality or to a DVD at a higher quality.

  1. Coax cable (round and screw on) from the antenna to VCR/DVD
  2. Coax/AV/HDMI cable (only need 1) from the VCR/DVD player to TV
  3. TV on and turned to the input matching the cable you used in step 2
  4. Turn on VCR/DVD and use the remote control included with this unit. Not the TV's
  5. Turn it to the channel 11 on the VCR/DVD
  6. Put in a VHS tape or DVD-R to record onto
  7. You will be able to hit record whenever the show comes on or used timed recording in the menu to schedule it ahead of time

I don't know how to tune the digital channels in my vcr. I can automatically tune channel 2, 9, 10, etc but not 7mate, 99Go etc


If your unit does not state DVB anywhere, either in the manual, or on the unit itself, and there are no options to tune in digital services via the menu on screen (as well as no EPG), chances are the tuner in it is analogue only, hence why you cannot tune digital channels in it. To receive all SD/HD digital channels, you would need to connect an external set top box to the recorder's AV inputs, and record/view them that way. (Set top boxes are cheaper than upgrading TVs and DVD equipment in many cases).

The only positive point here is it didn't cost you a workshop repair fee or a new unit - the user manual as a pdf for this model is available on FixYa if needed.

My problem is I have a dvd player DMR-ES 15 I live in australia is it possible to tune in the new tv stations example seven 2


It is not possible to tune in 7two, channel 11, GO! or similar digital channels with this model DVD recorder, as its tuner would most likely be analogue only. You would either need to upgrade to a model with a digital tuner built in, or purchase an external set top box, capable of SD and HD digital reception, and connect its AV outputs to the respective inputs of the recorder, in order to record the channels you want.

However, being in OZ, those digital channels are available as free to air - all you would need is the appropriate receiver to enjoy them. I recommend a set top box which offers HD as well as SD.

Hello, I have purchased an LG RH397D DVD Recorder in Brisbane Australia. Eveything works well except that I cannot receive channel 73 (mate) and 90 (Go). I can press guide and the recorder will tell me...


its simple ,HD stands for "high definition" and either your TV or DVD player cant do HD ,these channels will be only screened in HD ,this is why you cant watch them ,you will need to update one or both of them .THANKS for using FixYa

You need to read page 37 "Dubbing a title"

Select the title you want to record and select the Dubbing option.

Connect satellite receiver to dvd recordrer


there is really no way around it. Directv and Tivo are releasing a new receiver in a few months. Or you could purchase a HD dvr. Directv's receivers dont send any guide data thru a RF output, only picture and sound. The recorder you have is great for cable.
