Hi,

From your description, the problem is that the quality settings for recording are too low. Low quality recording uses less space but also displays compression artifacts (aka mosaic) which are more prominent in HD.

Solution: Increase the recording quality and you will see better results. Nothing seems wrong with the equipment.

I've never used one of these devices, but I read on a web blog that recording to the hard drive at 8x instead of 4x will cause some mosaic playback.
That's all I could find about the problem, and hope this helps.

I guess you mean a Set Top Box to convert digital TV transmission to old analog TV. Choose the correct video format for your screen.
Ah... Perhaps Your recording at an old standard & passing it to a modern TV or HD TV with the digital output from 1080 HD to 720 or lower still.
OR
Get a Digital Hard Drive recorder.....

The modern way to Record video is to use a Hard Disk Drive Recorder rather than a VCR. They have a built in tuner and can record 2 stations at once and have a built in Electronic Program Guide. The EPG info is transmitted with the Digital TV transmission from the broadcaster.
I bought one 2 weeks ago for an old 85yo friend so he could record late night stuff and play back later. He still uses the VCR but only for old VHS Tape playback. It was a TEAC HDR9650TS Digital Video Recorder and I picked it up new for Aus$188.
Here are the unit features
Main Features:
DVB-T Twin Digital Turners
DVR Recording: Record three channels while watching a 4th from same network Smart Series Record feature to record a whole series at a touch of a button
2.5" Sata Hard disk: 500GB
Time Shift Function (Pause live TV)
HDMI Digital Output
Digital Audio Output
CVBS/YPbPr/SPDIF connectors
Supports TV formats 4:3 and 16:9
Electronic Program Guide (EPG) up to 7 days in advance
EPG searching and auto download
Recorded program edit
Parental Control
Copy files from internal HDD to external HDD
Built-in WiFi
Network Playback
USB 2.0 Interface

How to reset the pin for Panasonic DMR-HW120EBK 500GB HDD Recorder with Twin Freeview +HD Tuners (2012)


This is the definitive answer from Panasonic Customer Services. It worked for me.

In response to your enquiry, I am writing to inform you that you can reset the PIN number to the default 0000 and then change it, based on your preference. In order to reset the PIN, please follow the next steps:
1. Switch ON the unit;
2. Press and hold the OK, YELLOW and BLUE buttons, at the same time, until you see 00 RET displayed on the unit;
3. Press, repeatedly, the RIGHT ARROW buton until you see 03 VL;
4. Press OK and you should see "INIT" displayed on the unit.
This will reset the PIN number to the 0000 factory preset.
Furthermore, you should also be able to remove the message that is asking you for the child lock PIN while attempting to play back a recording. In order to do this, please follow the next steps:
1. Press SETUP;
2. Choose HDD/USB HDD;
3. Select CHILD LOCK FOR PLAYBACK;
4. Input the default 0000 code;
5. Switch it to OFF.
After performing these steps, the recorder should no longer ask you for the PIN when trying to playback a recording.
I trust that the above information will be of assistance to you. However, of course, if you should have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Kind Regards,
George

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.

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.

I have DMEZ 47V DVD recorder/VCR combo and panasonic digital/ HD tv...when I set up to pre record the equipment seems to accept the information ok but when i try to playback all i get is ..."cannot...


The reason for this is simple; the built-in digital tuner does not support HD, only SD. You cannot fix it, at least not economically where the recorder combo is concerned. But you can obtain a separate HD set top box, and connect the outputs of it to the inputs of your combo if you really want to record HD channels. It's crude, but cheaper and easier in the long term, and it doesn't damage your machine.

Message appears unable to decode HD channels


DMR-EZ47V and EZ48V models do not feature a built in HD digital tuner - it is only SD - hence the reason it cannot decode HD. It is a model/design limitation; not a fault.

DMR E55 timer recording won't work


Your recorder doesn´t have a digital tuner, let alone an HD one. You can record digital programs via your TV tuner if it gives a signal out. Connect your TV to AV1 or AV2 on your recorder and program the recorder to record from the one you chose. You must program the TV separately (I don´t know if this is possible on your TV) or leave it on and on the channel you want to record.

Panasonic DMR-ERS30V recorder


not unless you have an ATSC tuner built into the VCR. you can get an external tuner but youll have to set up timed recordings off "line in" and have the tuner set to change to the channel when the program comes online. Some remotes can do this, like the old Gemstar.

Is there a solution?


I have a similar setup. Your problem is because you are selecting the recording on the digital tuner of the TV. When you do this you need to keep the TV on and canot switch channel.

You should make sure you use the digital tuner on the DMR-EX77 recorder and then you can use the TV as you like.
