There is no record button on the remote, and there is also no timeshift available. You can watch videos from any USB device.
I have entered the Service Menu (using an old remote), and under MRT enabled PVR Advanced.
This remains even after power off, which is a good sign.
The TV will then show the graphics related to recording, record schduleing, timeshift using pause etc.
Everthing looks fine, and when activating the recording function, it shows 'Preparing....'
Alas, it never records or pauses, and after about 30sec shows a dialog box stating 'Timeshift information not available' or suchlike.
This shows with recording or timeshift.
It looks like it is looking for some information, but cannot find it.
Is there one more option I need to activate, or can anyone confirm this model will never be able to record?
Local set looks something like this
I don't have an Android phone or programable remote, so I will have to see if I can use ruSTVC on it. Probably not as it is new model, but I will be back in a week or so and let you know.
thanks for your help.
my ruSTVC software is too old to work with the latest TV, and I can't find the latest, so...
I tried the IOS with and iphone headphone socket IR blaster set-up, which also did not seem to work.
So i bought (£9) a clone Samsung service remote, the later version.
Using that, with the info+Factory keys, I could get the Service menu to appear.
This is where i got to last time, and under the 'Option' and then 'MRT' selections, I had a number of options, including Extended PVR, which I set to 'ON'.
This still resulted in the situation I outlined at the start of the thread.
Using the service remote, if I put the cursor on the 'Advanced' selection (there is nothing under that, whatever you press it does not open), and I then press 0000, I get the further options appear under the Advanced selection. Still nothing behind the advanced selection.
These extra options appear to all relate to screen settings, and none of the options remotely relate to control or PVR issues.
Therefore, I have accessed a bit of the advanced stuff, but still cannot get to a sub-menu that indicates something like 'PVR Enable', or whatever it used to look like.
Any help to get to yet another sub menu would be great, unless of course, this model just can't do it.....(unlikely).
Photos of screens hopefully attached.
