You most likely will need a set top box connected to this recorder in order to receive digital channels, Assuming the DVD recorder works besides this detail, you should not need to replace the unit. Only replace it if it DOESN'T work.

The DMR-E85H is a 2005 model so it is more than 5 years old.

How do you re-tune the panasonic DMR E85H DVD Recorder. I have done exactly as it says in the manual and still it does not find any channels? Is it digital?


The tuner in the DMR-58H is a NTSC tuner (analog). Unless you have a low power station in your area, you will need a digital-to-analog converter box to record OTA stations. It can record analog cable without a box as well. (Digital cable will require a box.)

The manual for the DMR-E85H is available from Panasonic here: http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/DMRE85H.pdf .

I hope this helps.

(at least in my area there is only one station broadcasting an analog signal; it is a low-power transmitter and thus wasn't required to upgrade to digital with the rest of the stations.)

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 have a Samsung LCD HDMI 37inch TV series 5 do I need a set top box


You have a really nice TV, you have a built in ASTC tuner(digital).
If you want to recieve OTA(over the air) signals, all ypu will need is an antenna.
Visit this site for some great info on digital TV.

That's frustrating huh! I finally found someone at the cable company that knew somthing.. I think it's channel 95 (might be 94), if you tune to that channel, sometimes it get's it immediately, other times it needs some time to download it. But make sure you're tuning to that channel in your line up. In the setup mode you can specify it if it doesn't do it automatically. (just spend some time in setup and you'll see what I mean)
