What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good features easy to use. Great aftercare support Found this product easy to use and very effective. Most of all we found the aftercare service to be excellent. We have had a few problems which we e-mailed to LG. We were given immediate, clear easy to follow responses. All problems were solved.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a very comprehensive Freeview+ tuner and DVD player/recorder This is an amazing piece of kit. As well as being a Freeview+ tuner (2 channels) it can play and record a whole range of DVD configurations. It also has the facility to edit programs saved on the HDD (to remove adverts etc.) before burning them to a blank DVD. Its wide range of functions could have been supported by a more comprehensive manual.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Value Very happy with my puchase, easy to set up and use. One of your customers comments was that subtitles come up whilst recording and watching the same program -true- but I just turn it back to TV mode, it's still recording and you can watch it on TV - no subtitles.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK This box is easy to understand and set up, but I cannot understand why- when you tape on the hard drive and watch it at the same time the subtitles come on-and stay on, is it a fault I wonder. It is not a problem when you play it back there are no subtitles, I have been through the set up and switched off the subtitle settings but it still happens, I have read another review where the same thing happens,other than that the box is ok.
