Is that model available in the US?

I don't see any video inputs listed at the LG website. How are you connecting the PS3 to the recorder?

Other than the RF in, USB, and ethernet, I don't see any inputs on this thing. I don't think it will record anything other than over the air, USB, network, and from discs inserted to it.

I think it's just a Blu-ray player with an OTA DVR installed, not a real line-in DVD recorder.

Don't believe everything on the Interwebz! A duck's quack DOES echo!

Normally, unless you have a very freaky TV with odd connectors, you would have to feed the source to the recorder, not to the TV, in order for the recorder to...well...record. The the recorder would forward the picture and sound to the TV.

The way you describe hooking up the cables, you're doing it all backwards even if it were possible. You hooked the PS3s outputs to the recorder's outputs. Not good. You're getting two sets of A/V signals slamming into each other. Might not want to do that again if you value your equipment.

If your PS3 has RF outputs, or you can use its A/V outputs to feed an RF converter, you might then be able to feed the RF signal into your recorder, but picture quality would suffer a bit. Any conversion to RF will do that.



EDIT:
I found a couple half decent pictures on the internet, and from the looks of things the only input on the recorder is the antenna input. Sorry.

The only way I can think of would be a PC and Hauppauge 1212 recorder, this is assuming your PS3 has HD component outputs.
