You can try changing the command mode of the (genuine Panasonic) remote itself, press and hold [ ENTER/OK ] and the number [ 3 ] button together for 5 - 10 seconds, then release. Then try the remote with the unit. If it still shows DVD 3 on its display, no matter which button is pressed, reset the main unit to factory default as outlined in the user manual (assuming this model recorder has a tuner, there would be channel buttons on the front - try pressing and holding [ CH/UP ] and [ CH/DOWN ] together - for 5 - 10 seconds, until 'SETUP' appears, then release). This may or may not restore your DVD unit to the default (DVD 1) command mode. (Don't forget to reset the remote back to DVD 1 if you do reset the main unit - press and hold [ ENTER/OK ] + the number [ 1 ] button together as above).
Your new remote may be set to DVD 1 by default while your unit is DVD 3 = different remote command modes.
Check the HDMI settings and your TV specifications. Press Functions on your remote and go to Display (up/down arrows). Press Enter. Go to Connections and again Enter. Then HDMI settings and Enter. Look for HDMI video settings. If the setting is automatic, the unit sends the output it believes is best for the TV. You will notice that the compatible video outputs are the only ones available for selection. (A new cable may be worth testing.)
According to page 15 of the manual, you should "Press and hold [ENTER] and the indicated number button at the same time for more than 2 seconds" This will work for SET 1, SET 2, etc. If you have lost the manual for the DVR/Remote you can download a copy at http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/DMRES15-MULTI.pdf
