Default Unable to get into Recovery

LG G2 D802 Three (H3G) KK 4.4.2

Hi all, I've checked out this forum and also watched a few videos. I've tried the volume down + power until the LG logo appears and then release and re-press them but all that happens is that the phone powers off after the second press after about 10 seconds. The volumes buttons work fine. There's clearly a trick to this but after about 20 attempts, it has be beaten! Any clues to the magic sequence needed?

TIA

EDIT: Yes, I can get into download mode no problem.
A former band member of IQ gave me permission to use the "Frequency" album cover. I'm hoping the same applies to the "Road of Bones" album cover as well.

Thanks for the reply.
If I just use volume up after the LG logo, the phone reboots normally. If I do a power + volume up after the LG logo, it just powers off after 10 seconds.

In fact every test shows the phone to behave exactly as if the volume up and down buttons have been disabled during boot up.

Tried a few times again - no recovery. Maybe it's something that has been blocked in the stock KK OTA update?

I think what he meant is when phone powered off, press volume down+power and when you see lg logo press volume up+down don't touch power

Update: I can get into recovery using adb. Maybe H3G have disabled getting into recovery via the hardware buttons only leaving download mode available. Bit of an odd thing to do though.

D'oh! That was about the only combo that I didn't try. Yes - it works. Many thanks to both for the help. Just curious: this alternative key combo I didn't find anywhere; is it something some carriers have done to their phone? (Or did I just not search hard enough? )

lg changed the combination when they started releasing the knock code update, I have no idea why but now it just means some people need to use volume down+power while others have to use volume up+down it just creates more trouble for us(people who help others) because if people don't mention whether they have knock code update or not we just have to guess what update they are on
