DVD Recorder Is Unable To Find Digital Channels

I own a Panasonic DMR-EZ27 DVD recorder. Using an over the air antenna I have in the past successfully set up the analog and digital channels on the machine. Starting 2 days ago, the recorder has set up the analog stations but when it switches to encoding the digital channels, it fails to successfully encode even a single digital station (in fact, unless the process is aborted, it continues to search indefinitely).

Does anyone have a solution to this problem?

Will the Panasonic DMR-E30 DVD Recorder replace my STB to receive the digital free to air stations on my tv?

Only if it has a built in digital tuner, and, if it does, the digital is only SD (standard definition). If not, you would still need the set top box to receive HD (you could connect the box to the DVD recorder (for HD and/or SD) as required if you wish to record channels). Most set top boxes have both SD and HD channels in their tuners, so it would most likely be the next best option if your DVD recorder does not have a built in digital tuner. You can check your DVD recorder's on screen setup menu to see if digital services exist within it. Either way, keep your set top box just in case.

White colour displaying as pink on DVD recorder DMR-EX77EB, problem just started a few weeks ago.

Very similar problem with my DMR-EZ27. About 10 minutes into playing back a DVD the color starts going away until I only see a black/white movie. Sometimes color comes back in partially then back to b/w

Can the Panasonic DMR-EH55 be made to receive digital channels? e.g. via a digital capable TV or a set top box? If not, I suspect it will be obsolete when analogue channels cease this year (in Australia)

If you receive your channels through your local cable company, nothing will change. The DMR-EH55 will continue to work normally.
If you receive your channels with your rooftop antenna you'll need a Digital to Analog TV Converter Box. The unit itself will not receive digital signals directly.

I had the same problem with my first unit, took it back they had to unscrew it all to get me back my DVD. They gave me a new machine. Checked it out seems it's a Auto Tuning problem, i went into the menu and restricted the auto tuning, problem is now, every time i switch it on it wants to update the tuning!! Pain in the ass. Contemplating taking it back again. Panasonic said it must be a one off, they hadn't had any other complaints!! Yeah right.
