That's frustrating huh! I finally found someone at the cable company that knew somthing.. I think it's channel 95 (might be 94), if you tune to that channel, sometimes it get's it immediately, other times it needs some time to download it. But make sure you're tuning to that channel in your line up. In the setup mode you can specify it if it doesn't do it automatically. (just spend some time in setup and you'll see what I mean)

Why won't dmr e85h pick up all the digital channels the tv attached to it will? Is it outdated technology? Do you need a digital set top box or completely replace the unit? Anyone...?


You most likely will need a set top box connected to this recorder in order to receive digital channels, Assuming the DVD recorder works besides this detail, you should not need to replace the unit. Only replace it if it DOESN'T work.

The DMR-E85H is a 2005 model so it is more than 5 years old.

I can't get the recorder to keep my guide.


There might be a TV Guide issue located in your area, since the transition to digital, TV Guide have been updating there broadcast frequency which is know been done by CBS. Have unit reset by holding down channel up and down button for 15 second on the unit itself until 12 flashes on display, then power on unit and setup TV Guide, then have unit off for 24 hours especially between 11pm to 6am for listing. If issue still exist contact Panasonic to have issue send to TV Guide.

No TV Guide On Screen and no clock adjustment


I have two Panasonic DMR-EH50s and one DMR-E85H. I also have a Sony DHG-HDD250 which also uses TVGOS, but it is a HD recorder (that means full DIGITAL capabilities, including the TVGOS ) My TVGOS went out in the middle of April. I messed around on the support sites for about two weeks and found little real info.

The bottom line: I live in Madison, WI & have Charter Cable. None of my DVRs were receiving the TVGOS. Charter was not processing and/or transmitting the TVGOS properly (doesn't really matter the DVRs couldn't receive them), so I called them up, got to their "Level 3 Technical Support" and explained to them that I could not receive the TVGOS digitally or analog (converted digital) on any of my DVRs. They called me back a week later and told me to try it again....

So, all you need to do (if your local Cable Company is sending it properly):

WARNING - All SCHEDULED programs that you have previously scheduled by using the TVGOS will be deleted (NOTE: not the programs that are already recorded on your hard drive, they will NOT be deleted)

Turn the unit off.

Press the up channel & down channel (on the box, not on your remote control) at the same time & hold them for at least 10 seconds. This will reset the entire TVGOS system back to the default settings that were present when you first plugged in your DVR. This erases all previous info that your DVR had about what station it used to get the signal from and forces it to scan all the channels looking for the new channel. This is the only way to force this to occur.

When you turn on the unit, it will run you through the setup like it did when you plugged it in for the first time. Enter your zip code, etc. and when you are done, turn it off & leave it off overnight.

If your TVGOS has the Station Grid but no listings, be patient, TVGO updates its own firmware on your DVR automatically, and that may be all that happens the first night. It should start updating the listings the following night.

If it found the station grid, this is a great sign!!!! This means that your cable company is working on it!!!! It took my local Cable Company about 7 or 8 days to get it working properly, but now my 3 Panasonics and my HD Sony are all receiving full listings!!!!

If you are still getting nothing, complain to your LOCAL Cable Company. It is up to them to ensure that the signal is converted to analog & sent out over cable.

Panasonic DMR-E85H


No VCR required - A VCR is a video cassette recorder, which requires a video cassette in order to record source material. A DVD recorder, requires DVD discs and this model in particular has a built in hard drive so you don't even need discs either, unless you plan to share recordings with others. All you need is a 'feed' / 'source' from an external aerial like Cable or Sky etc.
Does that help?

DMR-E85H works fine after replacing IC but ......


Quite many possibilities. Since you replaced the IC, I'd figure you have a little understanding of electronics and ESD procedures. You now need to troubleshoot the driver for the display. Do a little research with your DVM... make sure the display is getting V. Should the unit be a uP type system, you are probably looking at the uP display driver circuitry [all in one] being bad and no way around the replacement should you desire a display. Should the unit be slightly older, you may get lucky with finding a cap or transistor problem for the driver. Moreso trans than cap.

Wish it were here.. always easier to take a peak and find the problem when it is in front of me.

Is it possible to tune Hd or Sd channels on the DMR-E85H. I can only tune in analogue stations


Unfortunately no, it is not possible to tune Hd / Sd channels on the Panasonic DMR-E85H, because it only has an analogue TV tuner.

For Sd, you could insert a 'digibox' between the RF aerial input and the DVD, but you won't be able to get Hd currently unless you subscribe to a cable or satellite provider.

Panasonic DMR-E85 DVD recorder TV Guide problem


Try unplugging the DMR-E85 power cord. It is important that you unplug it from the back of the recorder, not the wall. Leave it unplugged for 10 or 15 minutes. For good measure disconnect the cable 'in' connection as well. Once both lines are plugged back in it will go through its self-check diagnostics. Leave it alone for awhile (give it time to consider the error of it's ways). If you are lucky, when you turn it back on it will ask you to verify the channel lineup. If this does work, and all the channel info is correct, press 'enter' (lineup 1 highlighted). Good luck! This is an awesome machine, WHEN IT WORKS!
