Thanks but it looks like it doesn't work. No Debug Menu. RS232 Jack is set to Debug in the service menu.

Just one question: how to enter Top Debug Menu?
I have ex-link cable and RS232 terminal connected, then what?
I am going to test it as well :)

Edit: Please forgive me, I have found it: "...enter '1198282' numbers twice instead of debug string..."
...but it doesn't work (???) and TOP Debug Menu is not displayed at all. I type 11982821198282 - is it correct?
Model: LE50B650T2W.
Try this:
1) press 'd' 'e' 'b' 'u' 'g' keys, you should get:

[SERIAL INPUT MANAGE] 1-th ENABLE Magic serial input match!
[SERIAL INPUT MANAGE] 2-th ENABLE Magic serial input match!
[SERIAL INPUT MANAGE] 3-th ENABLE Magic serial input match!
[SERIAL INPUT MANAGE] 4-th ENABLE Magic serial input match!
[SERIAL INPUT MANAGE] 5-th ENABLE Magic serial input match!
[SERIAL INPUT MANAGE] serial input ENABLE!!!!!

2) type: 1198282 <ENTER>

====================================
[ TOP Debug Menu]
------------------------------------
1 : SubSystem Print On/Off
2 : Platform Print Setting
3 : TD Print Setting

THIS IS IT !!!
Thank you very much. It is working!
Recorded from DVB-C.

It plays as TS file. You can cut/fix recordings using free (trial) Cypheros TS Doctor.
Now I am going to test DVB-T source.

THANK YOU FELLOWS!
This is probably the Most Valuable Feature.


Edit: You can play recorded file in Media Play just after recording is finished. Simply, name that file with TS extension.

I think it's easy to implement an application for this.
Only we needed is export spI_Stream_Record and spI_Stream_Record_Stop functions.

Problem is how to ignite this code. I prefer using "Rec" button needs trigger recording, and stop button needs stop.
How could we handle Remote Controller buttons?

We need also handle channel change like options at later versions. :)

I think I found that there is also Pvr functionality in TV's exeDSP code. There is lots of spIPvr_ functions.
I think it's better that removing disable code instead writing whole app :)

xer21, unfortunately you are a windows depended by mind :cry:
I think you don't know architecture of linux and this TV's. We don't needed to capture overlay and make such an exotic hack you advised. Instead we need the utility that captures RAW TransportStram from TUNER, not from TV screen. Simplicity, is the key of success. The functions already there, in exeDSP. Only we needed to make that, interpret "Rec" key press to spI_Stream_Record() function. I think it's easily implantable by external Application :)

You needed to know that, only half of TV's programs has open source. If we follow your suggestions, than such a PVR functionality takes ages to implement. :)
