No chase function. Fast-forward is a fraction of the speed of other players - 15x rather than 60x or 120x. And then fast forward frequently glitches and you are back at beginning. Interface is ugly and awkward. All over, a significant step back from earlier LG players which were far more user friendly and functional.

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.
