Question about Panasonic DMR-ES20EG DVD Recorder
I have a new HD TV and have connected the dmr-es20 to it, but am not hooking it up to the cable box. The DVD wants to reinitialize, but of course can't "find" channels. I just want to use it now for playing DVD's. When I try I get a "can't read this region" error message (and I'm using a Region 1 DVD from the local library!)
This error was coming up quite often. If you haven't done so already, you should install the latest firmware for your recorder. This is the URL for the webpage:
Download and install the latest driver. Also, per page 32 of the manual, go to the setup menu and choose Restore Default Settings. This worked for a lot of people as well.
The Restore Default Settings fix seemed to help a lot of people fix this issue. For some reason a lot of people had this same issue with your model, but were able to do the restore. Good luck and I hope it works for you. If not let us know and we can provide further support.
