I have had this same problem with many of my customers of late...have not found and hard and fast solution however try retuning the tv or upgrading the firmware. I think you may have to contact LG regarding a firmware upgrade as this tv has no network connections or usb ports. i had to replace a set top box for a newer model for this same reason.

I don't know how to tune the digital channels in my vcr. I can automatically tune channel 2, 9, 10, etc but not 7mate, 99Go etc


If your unit does not state DVB anywhere, either in the manual, or on the unit itself, and there are no options to tune in digital services via the menu on screen (as well as no EPG), chances are the tuner in it is analogue only, hence why you cannot tune digital channels in it. To receive all SD/HD digital channels, you would need to connect an external set top box to the recorder's AV inputs, and record/view them that way. (Set top boxes are cheaper than upgrading TVs and DVD equipment in many cases).

The only positive point here is it didn't cost you a workshop repair fee or a new unit - the user manual as a pdf for this model is available on FixYa if needed.

When connected to the Panasonic DVD player I get a message when on One HD and any channel above that - "Unable to decode HD". How can I connect to these channels through the player?


You can't, without an external HD set top box connected via the recorder's inputs. HD is not a standard digital tuner format for this or any model Panasonic DVD recorder that I am aware of. Panasonic do not offer a way for the user/owner to skip the HD channels (which cannot be decoded) in these units. You can only skip analogue channels in VCRs/DVD recorders (which feature an integrated SD digital/analogue tuning system) - stupid really. It just means you need a separate box to get all the available HD channels through the unit.

Yes, 7mate (channel 73) is HD (but it isn't specified on their website or in the EPG) as is Gem ( channel 90) and of course One HD.

I assume your machine has a built in SD digital tuner.

Hi, I am in Melbourne Australia. Can I receive gem hd channel thru my dmr-ez48v. I haven't tried but I do have a hd monitor screen that I can plug the unit into. Also what does the hdmi on the unit do....


HDMI means high definition multimedia interface.

When connected to an HDMI compatible unit, an uncompressed digital audio and video signal is transmitted, enabling you to enjoy high quality digital video and audio with just one cable. When connecting to an HDMIcompatible HDTV, the output can be switched to 1080p, 1080i or 720p HD video.

Panasonic uses Viera link option between their video products.

When connecting with a Panasonic TV (VIERA) or a receiver equipped with 'HDAVI Control' function, linked operations are possible. [Linked Operations with the TV (VIERA LinkTM HDAVI ControlTM)]

Please use HIGH SPEED HDMI cables that have the HDMI logo (as shown on the cover).
It is recommended that you use Panasonic's HDMI cable.
Recommended part number: RP-CDHG10 (1.0 m/3.3 ft.), RP-CDHG15 (1.5 m/4.9 ft.), RP-CDHG20
(2.0 m/6.6 ft.), RP-CDHG30 (3.0 m/9.8 ft.), RP-CDHG50 (5.0 m/16.4 ft.), etc.
Non-HDMI-compliant cables cannot be used.

(the above is from the owner's manual of this model - page 40 tells you about linked operation using HDMI HDAVI control and how to set it up)

As for Gem HD, this unit has an SD (standard definition) digital tuner - it will not decode/receive HD channels. I should point out that 7mate also is a HD channel but is not specified as such in any menu or even their website. (I found this out by accident when I tried to record on timer 7mate one day and all I got was 'unable to decode HD channel' banner at the bottom of a blank screen)

Channel 11 is a SD channel - so this will work with your DMR-EZ48 as will all the other relevant main free to air channels (ABC/7/9/10/SBS). GO! is also a SD channel.

To be able to record HD to this combo unit you will need a HD set top box connected via its AV inputs. HDMI simply means you will get HD video quality from the combo to the TV, you will not receive HD channels from your HDTV to your DMR-EZ48 unit via this method.

I cannot get the new digital channels throught my Panasonic DMR-EX87, that have become available of late, (GEM, 7MATE and ABC News24, I am in Australia). I have performed a system update and...


The tuner in this DVD recorder is a DVB-T SD tuner; it will also tune in the analog signals if you have any analog stations in the area. You will need a separate HD tuner (set-top box) to provide the HD content. I'm not sure if you can record from a set-top box with the recorder set to Line In or Input. The only input jacks are the A/V (composite) jacks.

I wish that I had better news.

I get no sound or picture on channels 90 (GEM) and 73 (7mate) but i do get their guide. Every other channel is fine. I have done auto channel search a few times and nothing has helped.


I ended up ringing LG who we got our plasma tv with and they sent me out a usb device that I plugged into my tv and now I get sound!

In my tv i have connected set top box to av3 i can see the pictures but no volume. i have have a dvd payer connected to HDMI1 and it is working ok. it used to work ok but some how there is no volume...


When it is certain that the volume on the TV functions properly try to ensure also that the set top box also produces volume. This you can do by connecting the set top box directly to your DVD auxillary channel. If any volume comes out of that then you can be sure the fault is from your connection. But if on the other hand the the box does not produce any volume then the set top box is faulty. Therefore you have to send it back to your supplier.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

Trouble with volume on certain channnels


If you get good audio on most and then low or very low audio on certain channels then call you cable company and have them inspect this problem. It is their business to get both good video and audio to you.
