No, this set does not have a digital tuner. The TV must be an HDTV in order to have a digital tuner built in.

Hr836t how do i watch different channel to one recording


This unit has only one tuner, meaning you can only watch or record one thing at a time. Depending on your TV and how your equipment is installed, you may be able to split your antenna/ cable line and record on your DVD and use your TV tuner to watch another program.

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.)

If ut is not a digital tuner then you will not pick up any stations. Look at your owners manual to see if the tuner is digital. If its not then you will have to buy a digital converter box.

Loss of TVGOS signal ...


In most cases, you won't have to get a digital antenna, since the "digital switch" just changes the frequencies on which the networks broadcast. Spend the $50 to get a converter box and hook it up between your antenna and the DVR. If you still don't get the TVGOS signal, then you will have to get the antenna.

No antenna signal nor found channels for my area.


You'll need a better antenna to solve your problem. With the new digital broadcasting, signal strength is everything. With analog, a weak signal would give you a watchable but fuzzy picture. A weak signal with digital gives you nothing, or possibly a picture that freezes up or breaks into blocks (pixellation). The only cure is a better antenna, either an amplified indoor antenna or something outside.

Sad to say, there's no guarantee that will work. If you live too far from the station, or have hills, buildings or other obstructions that block the signal, you just may not be able to pick up some channels. In some areas people have found they get no reception at all.

At www.antennaweb.org there's a tool that will tell you what stations are around your area and how far. It's designed to help you figure out what kind of antenna you might need.

Lost digital signal on analog TV


You do not need to use an RF modulator if you have a LG DR787T. It will output the program on channel 3 or channel 4. If you have another recording machine, I think you may need to re-scan for the stations.
It is also possible that you need to use the remote to switch from the analog (66 only?) stations to the digital stations.
If using a 787, press HOME, select TV & press ENTER, the channel list menu appears. With the highlight on the top of the list, use the < and > arrow keys to select from: TV, DTV, Favorite, or ALL. This lets your pick whether you want to see digital, analog, favorites with the "HEAR" symbol, or all stations.

THIBSRUS:
I think that there is a selection on the Panny that works much like the TV/VCR selection on a videotape recorder. Your machine is receiving and decoding digital stations, as you stated you can see them on the menu screen, but is not passing them through to your TV set for viewing. To use the Panny as a tuner for live TV shows, or actually, programs currently airing, you have to tune the TV to channel 3 or 4, or, if using the Red/White/Yellow connectors, the proper video input selection, AND turn the Panasonic on, and have it sending the programs it is receiving out on the antenna connection or the video/audio out (RWYellow) connections. It is really a matter of selecting, on the Panasonic, whether it passes through the antenna signals, or the digital signals that is is receiving.

Error message


Hi

This is not an error code!
RF CH21 simply refers to a channel that the recorder is set to and is the first channel it will display. For example, there is no CH20. Your recorder is trying to find stations on all its channels from CH21 through to around CH70 and when it gets to the end if it doesn't find any stations, it starts the process again. This will often happen when you first unpack the unit from new until it has been set up.

Firstly, make sure you have a TV antenna connected, even if you use a satelite receiver. If no antenna is connected, your poor old set will keep on searching until you tell it to stop. Incidentally, connecting an antenna will allow the machine to set the clock automatically too. Next, go into the menu options, this is incredibly easy, just follow the on screen prompt.

Find "Tuning Set Up" and make sure that it is not set to auto. If the recorder still continues to show CH21, you will need to switch the unit off from the power socket and leave it for at least 15 minutes before switching back on. Then repeat the above.

I am almost certain you'll fix this, because it sounds as though the machine is doing what it is supposed to. If it still doesn't work please give me a few more details.
Best wishes.....

TV Converter Box


Yes, you will need one if you watch any TV from an antenna. If you use satelite or cable to get your local TV stations, then you are good.
