Clarification Request
Full model numbers please.

Samsung appears to not offer such in the USA. So I can't guess which model you have. Or if that is blocked because of copy/record protection.

And let's clear up something. No system I see records from the TV to a BD-HDD system. So far, if there is recording to be done the source is never a "TV".

Can you tell more?

What exactly do you mean with "can't record". For example:
- it's not in the TV menu
- it's not in the BD-HDD menu
- it's greyed out
- I get error message "xxxxx" when the recording starts
- I can't copy a blueray disk to the hard disk

Can you tell the exact model numbers of the 2 devices and give a link to the user manual?

Hello Kees

When I select EPG guide, the options appear at the botto, press 'i" for info, record, reminder, etc

I can use the reminder selection. When I press the record button the remote it says "not available" The TV is Samsung model UA40EH6000M and the BD-HDD Combo is model BD-E8500A.

Also when I select Smart Hub on DVD remore, only get options, Channel list, Guide, Media Player, Schedule manager and Source.

Should I reset both back to factory settings and start again or is it more easier that that to solve.

Thank you for your help.
