Waste of money
Wish I had read other reviews before wasting my money. The product is so basic it's useless - no edit, pause and I am unable to set the automatic record for specific times because it doesn't like being attached to Foxtel and won't let me set a start time. Time to save up for another product unfortunately.

This is a lemon
Don’t waste your money on this PVR Recorder. I have several LG electrical items; this PVR is a total disappointment. The EPG is cumbersome and a chore to use, the text used in the on-screen menus are very difficult to read. The biggest issue is if you record 2 programs and watch a saved program, as soon as the recording starts you are kicked out of the recorded program you are watching, you then need to go back through menus and restart. Also the HD continuously freezes making the PVR unresponsive. The only solution is to pull out the electrical plug and start machine again. This usually happens when 2 TV shows are recording.
Time shift is the worst I have ever used.

Useless machine for recording
This product will not tune in Austar to a channel which means we cannot view Austar through it or record like we could on the old set. We do not get channels through aerial. Also does not provide the ability to record through AV to Austar. Also does not provide any edit ability if recordings made.

this product is no good
I bought this recorder to replace an old analog recorder (LG RH1999H) and I am very disapointed. There is no way to edit recordings, unlike the old one. It is now gathering dust on a shel, and I am back to using the old one. NOT HAPPY LG!!!!
