Question about Panasonic DMR-EZ47V DVD Recorder/VCR
I have a DMR-EZ48VEB recorder and a TX-26LMD70 TV.
I have to switch the recorder on in order to watch digital TV.
If I set a timer recording I take care to switch the recorder off when I've done so but have to switch it on again when I want to watch digital TV. If I'm watching a channel other than the one I've set to record, a warning notice appears, the TV is automatically switched to the recorded channel and I am unable to select any other channel until the recording is complete.
What am I doing wrong?
You are not doing anything wrong. The unit is your tuner and it has to be tuned to the channel it is recording. You simply cannot tune to one channel whilst recording another. I see that others are having similar problems and that is the only one they tend to mention in reviews of this product.
" Downside is slow operation, plus using EPG exits programme you are viewing, but this won't matter if you have a digital tv, as you'd have two tuners to choose from - one (tv) to view and one to record from."
When we used to timer record on a VCR decades ago we would not be able to use it to tune a program for viewing at the same time and this is the same idea. We would have to use our television's tuner to view a different program. As the reviewer stated you would have to view a different program from a television having a digital tuner whilst recording on this unit.
