Panasonic Plasma with C.A.T.S Feature is Causing IR sensor issue

I'm a Comcast Cable Tech. I was sent to a customers home to check a DVR/Remote issue. after about an hour of troubleshooting, swapping the DVR and several remotes, I realized that the problem was caused by Pannosonic Plasma's C.A.T.S feature. The problem the customer was experiencing was our DVR remote would intermittently opporate the set top box. When I turned the TV off, but left the set top box on, the remote keys worked without a problem. What I discovered was when C.A.T.S. is disabled, we experience the IR issue, when C.A.T.S. is enabled the problem goes away, but it resulted in a much dimmer resolution on standard deffinition channels. Another Tech experienced the same issue with a SHARP AQUOS wich has a similar feature (OPC). The strange thing about his issue was IR interference occurred when OPC is enabled but no IR issues when disabled. Sharp is aware of their issue but I have not been able to find any answers from Pannosonic. Any info you might have would be greatly appriciated.

Thank you,

Joe

SOURCE: Viera Link not work between two brand new Panasonic devices

You need to select setup from the TV menu then switch the Viera link on. I think retuning must have switched it off.
This worked for me

How do I download a quick guide start up manual?Pan


All cable company's have a remote that can also control your TV. Flip your cable remote over and find the part number on it. On rare occasions, it might be inside the battery department instead of the back. Type that part number into your internet browser with the words guide or manual and you should find the manual u need to program your TV into your cable remote. If all else fails, call your cable provider.

Yo yo, checkidee check this out, before you wreck yourself, cuz big D's in your.... I have Comcast (they named themselves Xfinity without adding any value to the product). Anyways, I have a little stupid set top box from them, and a remote from Comcast. On the friggen bottom of the remote is a stupid little button called "LANG". I press it, and it says ENG or SPA on the bottom left of my TV screen. When it's showing SPA, the annoying narration happens. Sheesh, it annoyed the hell out of me for the longest time.

Most likelly it is your DVR that has a problem. Their are a lot of issues with those DVR's from the cable or satellite companies. I would recomend swapping it out.

I've a Panasonic 42' Plasma tv purchased recently and when I connect my Comcast DVR box via Composite A/V connection, I see only black n white images..


Be sure the 3 video wires are color matched on both ends. Try a different cable. Connect another device like dvd player to that same Component input if it's ok then cable box is the problem. If still B/W then replaced a/v or main board.

Remote control does not work altho tested ok


There are two parts in the TV that could be causing this issue. It is either a defective IR board in the TV or defective main board. The IR sensor on the IR board picks up the signal from the TV and sends it to the main board that decodes it.

It is also possible there is a loose connection form the IR board and main board. The only way to check which of the above mention failures is causing the remote control not to work is to check the voltages along the line with a digital multimeter to match the ones in the service manual.

Panasonic 42" connected to comcast dvr, and dvd player


To solve need more info if this is still a problem.
Is your comcast dvr connected directly to the tv, and also the DVD connected directly to the TV?
If so then you will need to change the input selection on your tv remote to determine which inputs these devices are connected to.
If you are connected differently, please post how your devices are connected.
