Question about Panasonic DMR-E80H DVD Recorder

1 Answer

Remote not connecting

I am using a Universal R5 remote. It worked fine with "1 CHK REMOTE" but I moved to "2 CHK REMOTE" and now the Universal will not interface except to bring up the "2CHK REMOTE" every time. I cannot change the R5 to "2" or bring up the menu to change back to "1" Is there a switch inside the case of the recorder? Could the remote bring up a menu if I plugged in a VCR? then change it back that way? Thank you out there..... A

If you still have the original remote for the DMR-E80H, you can switch it back to operate with "1 CHK REMOTE" codes by holding down the "Enter" button on the remote and then press the "1" key.

If you don't still have the original remote, you can try the same steps on your universal remote (assuming it also has an "enter" key that worked with your recorder) and it could work.

It sounds like this is TV 1 that you are having this problem with the remote, is that correct? What has changed from when the remote was working till now? Was anything moved like the TV/receiver? You may have some type of interference with the UHF signal. Without getting more specific information, I'm generalizing the trouble shooting steps. Would you clarify if it's TV 1 or TV2. Please post to this site and I will respond back to you.

Harmony One USB Connection Problem on Vista PC

HI. So there are a couple of things you will have to ensure for the connectivity to be successful.

1. You are not connected to the internet via a router

2. You are not on a wireless network

3. Any firewalls on your computer are disabled

4. Your USB cable and port are good, and the remote is not connected to a USB hub but right into the compter.

Now, please do the following:

1. Uninstall the software

2. Download it again at
3. Install
4. In your computer's add/remove programs, uninstall the Logitech Desktop Messenger

5. Take out the battery, press and hold the "OFF" button, and re-insert it. The remote will display "Safe Mode"

6. Connect your remote and log in to your account

7. Click "Downloads" at the top and select "Firmware". The firmware on the remote will update.

8. Click "Replace Remote" to conduct a connectivity check.

9. Update the remote.

That should get the remote working. :)

Universal Remote says ''RC2'' for DMR-EZ27

Question (s): The remote control for my DVD recorder has stopped working. Every time I press a button, the display says "CHK REMOTE 1", "RC1" or "SET1". What is wrong? Answer/Comments: Your DVD recorder remote control can be programmed (with different codes), so it can be used with multiple Panasonic DVD players. When you press a button and the display shows [CHK REMOTE #] or [RC#] or [SET#] it means that the DVD recorder and the remote control are not set to the same code.To set the remote control code to that of the DVD recorder, press and hold [ENTER] as well as the corresponding code number on the display (1, 2 or 3) at the same time for more than 2 seconds.
