Question about Panasonic DMR-E85H DVD Recorder
My Panasonic DMR-E85 DVD recorder often loses the TV Guide channel line-up.
I have Comcast cable, no converter box. Just this past week, I've had to
manually set up the TV Guide channel line-up FOUR days in a row.
Of course, Comcast says it's not their 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!

I have had this problem for months, and still have no listings. It appears to be the transition from analog to digital has screwed things up. Please contact Michale Finney of ABC news.com 7 on your side. If he
hears from enough people he will get the transmissions fixed. copy and

For the person who said they needed the manual, it can be found here:
I still have my manual for what it good it has done in order to get the TV listings downloaded. Would you believe I've had it for five years and never have been able to download TVGOS programming using either a cable box or antenna. Sucks.

I had a problem with bad programming info, a similar problem. I fixed it by buying a signal amplifier from Radio Shack. Apparently, the problem was a weak signal. Picture looked fine, though.

Unit must get the TV guide from an analog station. If cable company goes digital you loose the data. If the station that hosted TV guide goes digital you loose the data. This unit does not have a digital ATSC tuner only analog NTSC tuner. If you are still getting analog data there are a few capacitors on the power supply under the hard drive that bulge up and cause problems. They should be replaced with higher voltage rating types.
