LG xxLA620 vanished PVR time schedules :( !!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Tried it on two separate LA620 already, both came up with same error.

If I try to do both: record a DVB channel on one USB disk, and watch some
video from another USB disk, mostly it works just fine (expecialy if I leave recording for a minute, and only then start playing), but in 1/4 of a time it seems as CPU in TV is not strong enough, and all TV functions slows down, recording became fuzzy and breaked, same with playing back video - impossible to watch. It all repairs with TV turn off and turn on.
The biggest problem while this "cpu lag" happens is, that all future TIME SCHEDULED RECORDINGS for (only) this channel is deleted from a list !!
Very annoying, constantly cheking if maybe some of rec-sched has vanished frown.gif

It doesnt happen if I use only one disk: recording on it, and playing back from it (old records).

Is CPU in 620 to weak, or is this a firmware problem ?
Is it happening on other LA6xx or 7xx, also ?
Will LG fix it or are we PVR-USERS doomed ?

Hey,
still no answers regarding double (rec&play) - if it is slow CPU in TV ?

Second question regarding vanishing PVR schedules: seems like it has something to do with
Copy Content Protection. It happens if i have 1 minute (or more) between two recordings,
and if I am still watching (delayed) first recorded-programe before 2nd one starts. Then I get an error
before 2nd rec starts: "copying of programmes protected is not possible" -- and all future scheduled
recording for this program is deleted !! For example: I put a 1st time-rec schedule from 17:00-17:50,
and 2nd 17:51-18:15. As I watch delayed first time-rec (at 17:30 timeslot) it is at 17:50 stopped,
saying it will start next recording at 17:51. I choose YES, and go watch 1st rec from where it stoped.
At 17:51 I got an error "copying of programmes protected is not possible" and all future scheduled
recording is deleted !!
Do you expirience the same ? Please test exactly the same and report back smile.gif
I tested it and it happened on these firmwares: 3.0.22, 4.0.13, 4.0.21

Am I really the only one using PVR RECORDING on LG TVs smile.gif ??

update: vanishing of all future TV scheduling for channel "Y" happens
everytime I play some other thing from USB disks,
while any TV schedule on channel "Y" starts.

My continuing testing of this problem smile.gif

Problem is happening on LA 620, 640, 660.
It doesnt happens on LA 740, 860.
Strenght of signal is of no importance, as it is doing ok even with only 8%,
version of firmware neither: 3.05-4.21

Faster CPU is (alegedly) from LA 790 and above, so I am wondering what could be the problem with 6xx and not with 740 ?

The simpliest reproduction/test of this problem is as follows:

1. Start recording any TV program to USB for 3 minutes, then stop.
2. Go (at 1:00 PM for instance) to GUIDE and program ScheduledTask for a program everyday from 1:02 PM until 1:04 PM.
3. Check if it is really scheduled for all next days (Guide and 2x yellow button)
4. Hurry to USB and start 3 minute recording from 1st point
5. In between of your watching it, the recording will start. Leave for another 30 seconds,
and then press STOP. You will be thrown to "SmartShare", singnaling that recording has
stoped (even it is not 1:04 PM yet), and most anoying: ALL FUTURE SCHEDULED TASK
OF THIS PROGRAM IS DELETED !!!
(if you press button EXIT, the problem will not happen)

LG guys, can it be fixed, or is it 6xx hardware isue ?
