View Full Version : 46PFL8686H - HDMI source change impossible during channel recording
07-19-2012, 10:33 AM
When TV is recording TV channel, TV is not able to change HDMI source.
For example, I would like to watch a Blu-ray or movie stored on the USB disk while I record movie on 1st channel.
Is this bug planned to be fixed?

this is "by design". You cannot do anything during recording...

Thanks for you very quick answer.
nevertheless, coming from electronics design, I'm a little bit surprised.
It should be only a matter of routing video signal, either by HW or SW.
I guess it's not MS-DOS that runs on the TV, it's a kind of Linux so multi-thread should works.
TV sorted out in 2011 and Series 8000 is almost the most highend product.

For sure this is a Good TV, however, the TV can only handle 1 Video Stream and this Stream is for Recording, so there is nothing you can do about it. :(

Yes, but TV recording is not a video stream, there's no HDMI processing, it's only TNT decoding.
For me, display and TNT decoding are 2 different things, tasks, chips or processors.
I am sure there could be a work around :rolleyes:
