half good, half very bad
to start off positive, it is good for recording 2 shows on 2 different channels at the same time.
but then when I wanted to copy a recorded show onto a blank dvd+r, it took a long time to burn a half hr show and when it finished copying, i check the dvd worked there was no audio! Not happy!
Also numerous times its recorded one show but then it doesn't stop recording so when ive come home from a weekend away its been recording for 36 hrs, and another time 52 hrs!!! Seriously?!
Which means other shows ive chosen to record during that time its ran out of space on the hdd.
Also when I tried inserting a portable hd into the usb and pressed copy the recorded live show, it didn't come up as a show it just turned into a file and I couldn't play the show. a lot of times the machines unresponsive and I have to turn it off at the wall then when I turn it back on I have to set the timer again and I lose all my shows in the timer record part.
I had such high hopes and im very disappointed :(

Works for me
"I'm a newbie to DVD recorders so didn't even know about 'editing' and 'combining' etc till I read all the negative reviews. For me, it does the trick. 500gig internal hard drive, (barely a need to use DVD RECORDER) ability to record 2 programs at once whilst watching a 3rd through the tv. EPG is clear even though you have to scroll through the channels first to make sure it appears properly. It's easy to use.
So if you're looking for a way to record tv moving beyond VCR then this is it. And as I say, 500gig hard drive- that's over 40hours of high def recordings or 100hrs of standard def so you won't necessarily even need to record onto DVD.
As my review title says, works for me. Thanks LG."

Cannot Record Properly ( copy protection )
Had trouble recording a Digital video camera footage to the internal HDD it kept displaying " cannot copy due to copy protection" & would record only about 4 - 5 minutes of data before the messgae was displayed at which point a had a begin recording again. I returned to the purchase store and received full refund.
what a nuisance of a machine

A Total Lemon
Can't begin to name all the things that are wrong with this machine. Wish I had done some research before buying. I agree with all the comments on other reviews. Taping a program you can't edit out the ads, taping two programs you can't even split them, problems with the fast forward motion, TV guide channels don't work unless you individually set them each time you want to look at them, etc etc etc
