You have switched machine onto external link mode
Either press external link on remote or find it under the flap.
Has a small child been playing with the remote?

    Thanks a lot, yes small children and lost manuals add up too many a mysterious mode. Your tip was great. Now we can all watch the sound of music again for the 100th time :)

I have the same problem. I switched off the EXT-L button (which had engaged itself spontaneously) but I cannot get the channels to change, nor tv guide nor function menus to engage. I can sometimes short cut this by pressing play which allows me into the system and gives me access to the tuner and other controls, but not always. Help!!!!

Can I watch tv with the timer on the dvd recorder turned on?


Hook up the cable wire that comes directly from the wall to the dvd recorder's in connection, then get a 3 ft cable cord and connect from the out of the dvd recorder to the in on the tv. You should be able to set the dvd recorder channel and timer and leave it off. you then should be able to have your tv on and watch any station but to watch the tv with dvd recorder on, your tv should be set to either channel 3 or 4 depending on the switch on back of dvd recorder. I hope this solves your problem. Foxpaw13

Panasonic DVD Recorder DMR-EX77EB says no signal but no problem with aerial TV says signal strength 5 no problem for over a year since bought new until now


I restarted 'Auto setup' this deletes the channel settings (which had presumably been corrupted) and re-installed them from the incoming signal.

Connecting my DVD Recorder to Dish Network so I can record


If it is hooked up right to record as the program is on. Then make sure the input is set correctly, the tv should show pic from ext-1 the e-55 should be on channel 3. This should solve ur problem.

Is there a solution?


I have a similar setup. Your problem is because you are selecting the recording on the digital tuner of the TV. When you do this you need to keep the TV on and canot switch channel.

You should make sure you use the digital tuner on the DMR-EX77 recorder and then you can use the TV as you like.
