Question about Panasonic DMR-EZ47V DVD Recorder/VCR

1 Answer

Watching digital tv using a Panasonic DMR-EZ47VEB

My eldelly mother-in-law has just purchased the above equipment.  When we use the TV guide to select a programme to watch when we press ok the picture just returns to the channel we were previously watching ie BBC 1, BBC2, ITV1, Channel 4 or Five.  If I press the  function view button then the Freeview digital channel appears but it is pbscured by a dialogue box.  I feel we are suffering from the combination of an elderly relative and a totallly useless installation engineer, rather than faulty equipment.  Can you help please

    We have the same problem as bcfcok. We can record the channel that is displayed, but we cant watch the channel. Is there anybody else out there that has the same problem and possibly solution? Please help...frustrating doesn't even begin to explain the feeling...

PLEASE NOTE THIS INFORMATION COVERS PROBLEMS FOR ALL DEVICES CONNECTED UP BY STUPID scart LEADS. I HOPE IT HELPS EVERYONE.

This is a common problem, the problem is caused by the fact your device is connected to the TV via a scart lead. The way it works is this: If you press the AV button on your TV remote your TV will turn over to the first scart channel. If you actively do something on the device connected via scart in this case the dvd player, (this includes things like playing a DVD or Video, or going into a menu), the device sends a signal down pin 8 of the scart lead and turns the TV over automatically to the AV channel, BUT as soon as you come out of the menu or stop the DVD/Video the signal stops and the TV will revert back to the channel it was on.
So you have 3 choices......maybe 4...
1. press the AV button on your TV remote directly.
2. Buy yourself and HDMI lead IF your TV supports it (note: you will have to select the HDMI channel on your TV remote because the auto thing is only on scart leads).
3. ONLY DO THIS IF YOU HAVE A SPARE LEAD look up a diagram of a scart lead on Google so you can find pin 8 and cut it out with a pair of wire cutters. YOU will have to still press the AV button on your TV remote to go to the channel though,
4. Connect your TV and DVD with an aerial lead and tune channel 6 on your TV into the DVD player. ps then disconnect the scart lead.
(Go for choice number one!)

First of all you have to connect only one SCART cable ( one end to TV and the other to DMR ).When you are watching a program on TV select the DMR source ( input selector ) to SCART. Just press the record button with a blank DVD inside and it will record. Some Digital broadcast might have copy protect content which will prevent the recording from happening.

Try running the audio from each video source (NOT the TV, which is an output, not a source) to the HTR digitally so you'll get the best mutichannel sound possible. Then you can turn the TV speakers (assuming it has them) off for hi-end watching.
