v,good hardware, not so good software
I,ve always had lg aquipment and swear by it, and this is a really good piece of kit, although the software needs to be looked at, Ie, cant see the point of being able to connect to my wifi, if there is not a full browser, cannot get iplayer, or a number of other programs, and as the other reviewer said it switches off when it finishes recording , there should be something in the menu that allows the user to disable this feature as it,s very annoying to have to turn it on again when your watching a program, I hope someone in the tech department reads this, and if it is at all possible to correct these shortcomings, it would turn a good machine into a brilliant machine

good recording and playback
The recorder does what it does very well. Let down by poor features: It will not record to DVD. It is not possible to edit recordings to remove adverts. It is not possible to skip adverts but you can fast forward. Programmes are stored in reverse order - last first. Slightly disappointing for top of range devise. Also found customer support for my LG tv disgraceful but sorted problem myself and tv is good. Will buy different make next time.

Great Hardware, Poor software
Annoying messages popup and don't give you time to respond / find the remote.
Annoyingly shuts down when recordings finish (even when you are watching TV!!), unless you get to the remote in time (5 seconds) to press no.
Very limited 'Smart Apps' NO Iplayer app etc.
Pressing 'Delete' on a recording just takes you to another page where you have to select it again!
Poor program guide, only a couple of channels on each page.
