Very very disappointed!
Wow. I had no idea I'd find so many disgruntled people here experiencing the same issues with this unit. Who knows how many are out there that don't know about this blog. I bought this unit about 12 months ago and it has worked well until now...I can't access the 50 or so shows I've recorded for a rainy day. I turn the thing off, and then on, like the on-screen message tells me, but nothing seems to happen. Man, I'm upset with this unit. What's more, LG invite us to post our reviews! That's a laugh. Doesn't anyone from LG read these things? Is this just designed for us to vent?

What a waste of money
I'm devastated that I didn't read the reviews on LG's on website (these reviews) before purchasing what I thought would be the answer to my not being able to get/receive pay tv. I missed not being able to live pause and record two programs while watching a third.
This does not do what it says it will do, and what it does, it does badly.
I had a better recorder in the 80's. the retailer wont replace this and it is just plain sub standard.
I'd like my money back and a better recorder. I wonder if LG would honour their word?

Keeps freezing up making the live pause inoperable as you come back to press play and the unit has frozen and won't play. The only way to fix it is to reset the machine and then do a complete factory reset. This only works for a couple of hours and then it freezes again.

Bought July 2013 but only connected it in February this year. Has hardly been used. While watching recorded programme today and fast forward through ads whole unit froze. Only way to turn off was at the power point. Have done update as web sights recommended. Now wont delete recordings saying they have been deleted when in fact they havent. Also now will not even go to recording icon jumps over it. Am not happy 1st purchase of Lg product. Havent even used the dvd section and as I said have only recorded about 30 small programme help please

Had this product for around 6 months. Had minor issues playing blu ray which hasn't bothered me. Now I can't record keeps telling me no storage device connected not a happy camper as I also can't access previously recorded program's. Have turned player off and on several times and done a software update with no change.
