Enable PVR on UE43TU7100

Post by RedhatchL »

I am trying to activate the PVR function, which does not come as standard on this model.
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?

Thanks

Matt

How did you format your device? Try to format in exfat maybe. And then try to format from TV.

Yep, tried many formats, and had the TV format the device as well. It will read and play items on the USB with no issue.
Thanks for the reply though.

And what is your Local Set in Extended Service Menu?

Hi notengo13
I am not with the unit for a week or so, and can't tell you now.
I can't recall a 'Local Set' option, but are you referring to 'Region' or similar, just below 'Language'?

In Extended servide menu which you need to enter with INFO FACTORY or FACTORY 3SPEED. Check wiki for how to.
Local set looks something like this

Thanks, I remember now from doing the same PVR thing about 10 years ago.
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.

Okay, after trying multiple things, I have got here.
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.
