Excerpt: Bought the product (LG RH177) 20th Sept, Very easy to setup and the initial programme scan puts the 5 traditional TV channels BBC, BBC2 etc into the correct order with lables without user intervention. Picture quality good, recording very easy, playback very easy. Downside. The unit is very noisy even when not recording, the fan can be heard whilst watching TV so very irritating, I will be taking mine back to comet to swap or refund.
Excerpt: I have now had two of these units, and in both cases I could record from Freeview box for about a week or two, until the sound becomes intermittent. Recording from terrestrial is fine. Has anyone else seen this problem? I have tried a different scart lead and a different freeview box. While unplugging the aerials and scart leads from the back of the unit, I got an electric shock!
Excerpt: I have this DVD recorder set up to my HD LG tv and the quality is excellent. For the price you get alot more. You can record 80gb of programs then write them onto a blank DVD disc. Say goodbye to video. Its very easy to use.
Excerpt: I have had this recorder for about a year and found it easy to use with now it wont recognise any disc, blank or DVD movie, of any kind. It still records to HDD but is also noisey and picture quality has become very poor. After a years use it is now worthless.
Excerpt: This is a nice DVD recorder, when it works, but I have to agree with those who said it was unreliable. After 6 months it stopped recognising discs, so only the hard drive worked. I took it back, but because I had stuff on the hard drive, I asked them to fix it rather than replace it. About four months later and I have a new problem. Now, when I turn it off, it just doesnt want to turn back on. It says hello, and then please wait, and then I have to wait and wait.
Excerpt: Please note that I didnt buy this product from Amazon, not that theres any reason for a product review to reflect on Amazon, but I just thought it fair to say this. This player looked like a really good buy. Id heard good things about LG from a colleague (who is usually right about these things) so I was confident about this machine.
LG RH-177 - Un registratore dvd utilizzavile anche col digitale
21 May 2013
Excerpt: ...potuto utilizzare il mio amato LG RH-177 visto che sintonizzava i canali con l'analogico. Invece così non è stato: è bastato collegarlo con una scart ad un piccolo decoder (da una ventina di euro) e sincronizzare l'accensione dell'LG RH-177 con il decoder opportunamente regolato per l'accensione e lo spegnimento del canale che si voleva registrare! Funziona ottimamente. Il modello LG RH-177 lo si trova normalmente ancora in commercio e sempre più ...
Pros: Registri di tutto anche senza programmare
Cons: Nato con l'analogico, ora si deve abbinare con un decoder

Summary: Ich habe dieses Gerät als defekt erworben, weil ich für ein gleiches Modell ein Ersatzteil benötigte. Ich habe schon mehrere LG-Recorder und die sind meistens immer mit dem selben Fehler kaputt gegangen.
