If you receive your channels through your local cable company, nothing will change. The DMR-EH55 will continue to work normally. If you receive your channels with your rooftop antenna you'll need a Digital to Analog TV Converter Box. The unit itself will not receive digital signals directly.
The Panasonic DMR-EH50 can be reset like it was brand new. I assume the DMR-EH55 can be also. The up and down channel buttons are located on the front of the unit behind the small door in the center. With the unit on press and hold these two buttons for atleast 10 seconds. This will restore the unit like it was new and you will need to go thru set up procedure. The above action will put the unit in the off position. When you turn it on it will guide you thru the set up procedure. Once this is complete you can press the setup button and manually set the clock, however, the unit will need to be shut down for 24 hours to allow the tv stations line-up to be restored.
Do you mean you want to replace the hard drive in the unit? If so, I have one of these units and I installed a new PATA hard drive and then "prepared" it with a firmware update that is available from Panasonic's website. I tried to increase the capacity by installing a 500GB hard drive, and also a 300GB hard drive, but no matter what size I put in, after I initialized the new hard drive with the firmware disc I always only had 92 hours available to me. In fact there was never anything wrong with my unit, I was only trying to increase the capacity for recording - which I was never able to do. I did find that another 200GB hard drive I tried didn't actually work for some unknown reason, but the 500GB, the original 200GB and a 300GB hard drive worked no problem every time I swapped them around. Let me know if you need the link to Panasonic's download - it's easy to find.
Have you checked your cables? Start resetting one unit at a time until you isolate the culprit. Don't forget the simple unplug all units to let them reset. .

You think I have fun when something hiccups? A software snaffu? Bad a/v cable? Loose speaker wire? By the way-my online support is getting better and better. Charter cable has live chat, as does Sony and Motorola. Good luck. Also, I can't think of a single setting I've changed with the Panny. other than assigning digital audio out settings. DEcoder setting? Your Panny?
