Question about LG RH177 DVD Recorder/HDD Recorder
I have that model from 2 years, but I have big problem with that now. Actually it has been started about year ago. When i only have some space on HDD recorder automatically start to record. The most weard in that is that it's recording about 8 or 4 sec clip, save it and start new record. some times it is 3 minutes, sometimes it is 2 seconds. While record on recorder screen there is sign "timer rec" but there is no any timer rec programmed! yesterday I notice, that i have also problem with playing moves. I'm watching movie, when suddenly recorder make "pause". and it continue stopping my move while later and again and again. What can I do with that? HELP!!!

I have found the unit works on weekly or daily IF the unit is left in standy mode.. If not you get the message "Duplicate Date" after it attempts to record.. where the REC or RECOK message is displayed.. It is a "B" nuisance

Somehow, my HDD/DVD recorder recorded correctly 2 times last night, even if I did not do anything specific to fix. I will keep an eye on new occurences of this problem, but it appears at the moment that the issue disappeared by itself.

I finally got word back from a pal at LG regarding this issue as where I work we are getting these and as of Friday had about 18 to 20 units with this issue.
LG told us that this has to do with the encoding with the commercials (a one time record issue) on the one time record disks (DVD-R and DVD+R) now their "TEMP" fix for this is to used DVD-RAM or DVD-RW disks (these are not regular -RW they have a encoding CPMsomething I don't remember right now) but they will update us when they have a permanent solution. I will get the type of disk for the -RW on monday and post it here for everyone.

SOURCE: LG DR 165 DVD Recorder problem
hello friends, i have been using this machine for last 2 years nearly. it showed me lot of problems. i also found yours once. this lg recorders reading lens is very poor. it reads when disc is complete free of scratches and dust. it's not possible for always, even-though, it feels very hard and takes more times to recognize disc.
so i found the solution for this problem from kind of video site that you should replace the lens of the recorder with scratch readable lens like Philips had. it will work as good as possible.
another one is that if you open this unit manually by yourself, you could find that reading unit looks like DVD writer comport, and have the pin bunches like it. so i not strongly suggest you to replace that whole unit with New DVD writer, and it may work like computer reading all files. i don't try this, but looking for it. if you get, try it.
