Question about Panasonic DMR-ES40V DVD-Video Recorder

2 Answers

HD Plasma TV & Direct TV receiver, DVD ssound, & DVD recorder

I have a Samsung Series 450 Plasma TV. Direct TV HD receiver, A Samsung HT-TZ512 DVD surround sound system, A Panasonic DMR-ES30v DVD recorder. I can record shows off the TV, Both systems will play DVD's on the TV. If I play a non copyrighted DVD in the Samsung Surround sound system, it will play on the TV, the Panasonic will not record it. Anyway to hook this up correct? I could do it before when I did not have HDTV. I think It all went through the DVD recorder, but now that I have a HDTV receiver I cannot run the cable into the DVD recorder. The HDTV Receiver box has 2 cables in from the dish, , the DVD recorder only has 1 in port. ( room for 1 cable not 2 )

    I have home movies that have been dubbed from vhs to dvd. I am trying to make copies of the dvd's for family. The TV play s on HDMI 1, the Suround dvd player plays on HDMI 2, the dvd recorder plays on AV 1, it records from the TV on AV 1. I tried hooking from the suround dvd player to the IN 1 of the dvd recorder this still did not work.

I know you will not accept this and I don't care. Any good person will not answer this question. I don't care if the copying is for family or not. It violates copyright rules. I will not help you do something you should not do, and you should not be paying for others to tell you how to do it. I am very tempted to report this as abuse. Please don't use fixya as a place to find out how to do stuff that you shouldn't.

    Oh and by the way your system is fine as long as you use it for the right stuff. Use it as it is intended and you won't have any problems. Manufacturers do this kind of stuff to discourage hook-ups that can be used improperly.

How do I hook up my new HT-X50 home theater system to my Verizon HD "Motorola" cable box that my sony wega hd tv is hooked up to, so I can get tv shows and dvds to work with my home theater...


Hi evilfan,

If I may add to the postings of Ekse and TampaNative......

Depending on what available cables and connectors that you may have the basic idea is from the cable company in to your Motorola receiver then to your Samsung HT-X50 then to the Sony Wega as below image shows. All other additional devices such as another DVD player or an iPod Nano with Video Dock or anything else would have to be connected to the Samsung.

All external devices would have to be plug in the the different INPUTs as you may decide which is to which. What is important to remember is that everything goes through the Samsung be it incoming or outputs.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Can I use a HD receiver as input for the Toshiba XS35? Will it record HD signals? Will it record anything if the receiver is HD? I want upgrade my exisitng Bell Canada TV receiver box to HD - can I...


Yes you can record any TV show HD or SD, however it depends on what connections you use and what the recorder does with the input signals. You can record HD shows but not in HD resolution if you connect using composite video (yellow RCA cable) you just get a down-converted resolution, probably 480. You must use a HDMI or a component video connection for HD BUT if the recorder cannot record HD video, it should just record it in SD resolution but it should record the input signal. DVD is not HD, you would have to go to Blu-ray for HD and there are not many Blu-ray recorders around. The hard drive has the potential to record in HD but the recorder would have to process HD signals and you would have to connect with HDMI or component video. I would say your Toshiba will record an HD show but in SD resolution. I don't think the recorder has an HDMI input or a component video input. Just composite and S-video inputs. To actually record in HD you should look at another recorder.

Recording with comcast hd box and toshiba VCR/DVD


1st, see if you can get another cable box that offers component as well as RCA outputs on the back. Does your cable box have S Video out and does your toshiba have S Video in? If so, hook up the S Video from cable box to Toshiba. Then hook up R&W audio from Cable Box out to Toshiba In. Set the channel on the cable box to what you want to record. Set Toshiba to record channel 3 or 4, whichever your Toshiba is set on. The cable box controls the channel you are recording. You cannot set the recorder to the channel you want to record. It must be either 3 or 4. Try it. If everything else fails, you have to go cable from wall to cable in on cable box, cable out on cable box to cable in on Toshiba then either cable or RCA out on Toshiba to TV.

How to connect a humax foxsat-hd to a panasonic dmr 75eb recorder,to a panasonic th42px60b plasma tv,also will i get better result using component cable instead of scart lead. please can you...


You plug the humax into the panasonic dvd recorder and then from the outputs of the dvd recorder plug it into the panasonic plasma inputs

Is component video better than RGB? Well, yes and no, RGB provides the widest bandwidth and is the best choice for connecting audio visual devices like a Freeview box, digibox or Sky+ box to your TV, home cinema or home theatre system. DVD is however different, to reduce the amount of storage required DVDs are recorded using component video, it is therefore better to connect a DVD player via a component video cable to your TV, plasma or LCD TV etc.

Thanks if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask

My dvd player will not play HD-DVDs it is an HD DVD player


This dvd player doesnt' play HD DVD's it has a HDD which is short for Hard Drive. Which means you can use it like a DVR (Digital Video Recorder) to record your favorite shows and things like that.

Does this answer your question? If not i'm not sure what you're trying to ask could you be a little more elaborate?

I am having problems hooking it up to an HD Receiver from Direct TV


playback and record are 2 different things. playback, you connect the DVD player audio-video OUT to the audio-video IN of the TV. recording, you connect the DVD player from the audio-video IN to the audio-video OUT of the source (i.e. cable box, set-top box, etc) hope this helps!
