Summary: As this had high definition upscaling, I jumped to the conclusion that it would get HD channels. It doesn't. (I've made this mistake before. Perhaps this should be made more clear on all television adverts.) Unlike other reviewers, I didn't find the setup at all easy. It isn't bad for the price, but I wouldn't recommend it.
Summary: Slow in response to commands Noisey Inadequate recording time of watchable quality Weak display on front panel Remote badly designed in that the buttons do not respond without excess force being used. Buttons and titles on buttons confusing and far too small.
LG DRT389H: Great features, Great Recording, Unreliable (has been replac ...
30 January 2011
Summary: ***What is it*** The LG DRT389H is a dvd player with upscaling function, dvd recorder and freeview box all incorporated in one easy to manage stylish sleek unit. ***Suitable for*** The unit is suitable for anyone who wants to copy from a non copyright protected source (sky's box office movies are non recordable due to copyright) I myself bought this to record of my sky box so i could have extra space for more recordings.
Summary: I bought this to record recorded programmes from sky+ to dvd: to free space on the sky+ when my husband and family are away. The instructions on the booklet differ from the onscreen instructions. So far, more by luck than design, I have managed to record 1 dvd from 3/4 tries. What am I doing wrong?All in all it doesn't do what I wanted it to, and now I feel that I would have been better geting a model with a hard drive anyway!
Excerpt: Si, si, si... Tiene TDT y lo reproduce todo... Pero es un DESASTRE. Lo compro el 11/07/08 y hoy es 25/07/08. Lo he tenido que cambiar por otro porque a veces se colgaba al crear el menu despues de haber grabado. No reaccionaba a nada y tenia que apagarlo, PERDIENDO lo grabado. Al nuevo que me traigo de la tienda LE PASA LO MISMO. llamo a LG y me dicen que "hay que actualizar el software", como si supieran de sobra lo que le ocurre (demasiados casos?).
