DIGITAL ANALOG CONNECTION

Hello from Australia. I've bought a very sophisticated DVD player and recorder by Panasonic. It's the Panasonic DMR-EXS88. Unfortunately I don't have a digital television to go with it but only an analog. It's a Rank Arena model and it's 30 years old. Don't get me wrong as it's set up now the picture quality is very good to excellent but it lacks a little depth. The High Definition channels are not available but I can live with that. The color white, is exaggerated and is very bright. Because of the antiquated TV there's no audio in and video in so I've used a very good LG video player and it's audio and video ins.I've tried to adjust the color and the contrast on the TV but it's difficult to get things just right. Is there a way I can improve the picture quality? Or do I need a new TV? Let me know. Thanks sabojams

    Hello again, we'll take one step at a time and aim for a digital Tv with High Definition.
    The Panasonic DMR-EX78 has a integrated digital tuner that encapsulates SD not HD so you're right about High Def playback. I can view HD channels but not record them in HD. I still would be very happy with the quality compared to what I have now.
    Thanks
    Seb

A new TV should really make things easier and will for sure improve the image quality.

While you are using your old TV, remember that besides adjusting the contrast level, you can also chnage the brightness, tint, and other options to improve your image quality.


Good luck,

Sir,

You are watching analog not digital. That is the problem not the TV. High Definition TV's are for viewing High Definition digital cable and not analog. They make analog (basic cable) look even worse than a basic analog TV... You need to upgrade to digital to get the benefit of having a high definition TV.

DVDs are OK; but to see the full potential of your HDTV you'd want to upgrade to an HD Disc player or a Blue Ray Disc player..

thanks
good luck

    You can not get results from 30 years old technology for today's units that's why you need new model TV to attach Panasonic DMR-EXS88.

How do you re-tune the panasonic DMR E85H DVD Recorder. I have done exactly as it says in the manual and still it does not find any channels? Is it digital?


The tuner in the DMR-58H is a NTSC tuner (analog). Unless you have a low power station in your area, you will need a digital-to-analog converter box to record OTA stations. It can record analog cable without a box as well. (Digital cable will require a box.)

The manual for the DMR-E85H is available from Panasonic here: http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/DMRE85H.pdf .

I hope this helps.

(at least in my area there is only one station broadcasting an analog signal; it is a low-power transmitter and thus wasn't required to upgrade to digital with the rest of the stations.)

Can my Analog reciver Panasonic DMR-EH 75 v be converted to a digital reciever


I bought a set-top converter box from Dish Network, which will operate with the DMR-EH75V through the remote control cable that was provided with the recorder. It tunes in all the available digital channels and uses the RCA A/V cables to connect to IN1 on the back of the recorder. TVGOS is now provided through channel 2.1 (CBS) in our area and it also provides the time signal that keeps the recorder's clock updated. NOTE: ONLY the Dish Network boxes work with these functions. I've had occasional issues with the box after some period - a few weeks - it needs to be rebooted or reset to manual and then back to automatic (which causes it to reboot anyway.) Model no is DTV PAL PLUS.

Can the Panasonic DMR-EH55 be made to receive digital channels? e.g. via a digital capable TV or a set top box? If not, I suspect it will be obsolete when analogue channels cease this year (in Australia)


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.
