What about opening your recorder? See the I/O board, the one were the tuner is placed, and give a look at it to look for free space were you find Scart connectors in our model (see RH188 image in my web-page)..... if all is as I think, you can solder a scart connector on the I/O board, to support RGB input..... with no background falshes! I have none in mine with latest fw!
Let me know.
I have spoken to an LG engineer/technician and he thinks I may have a problem in the video signal up-scaling circuitry (to HDTV resolution). Why this only happens with a DSTV Sat decoder video signal I don't understand either, perhaps the video amplitude or luminance component is out of the range of the recorder scaling circuit input? But it does not happen when you input, say for instance, another DVD player video signal into the recorder. The flashing is also only predominant on bright background Decoder video.
And when the Decoder video signal is input directly to the plasma TV video input there is also absolutely nothing wrong with the picture, in fact it's perfect - no flashing. This problem is not acceptable to me. As the unit is still under warrantee, I am taking it to a LG service centre today to see if they can improve/repair it. Failing that I am going to get a refund and buy something else, even if I have to fork out more money.
Modifying it? Not at this stage, I feel the unit should perform 100% as is.
But thanks for the advice.
