Question about Panasonic Televison & Video
This DVD recorder only has an SD tuner. Thus it can't interpret HD signals. The only way to record HD content would be to use a set top box with an HD tuner. Connect this to the video input on the front of the unit. (The set top box output will need to be composite video (SD) or S-video.)
The manual for the European model is available here: http://safemanuals.com/user-guide-instructions-owner-manual/PANASONIC/DMREX78-_E . You will need to review the Panasonic DMR EX78 or enter a security code.
I hope this helps.

How to Record TV Shows to a DVD Disc
things you'll need:
* DVD recorder
* Blank recordable DVDs
* Audio/video cables (composite plus S-Video, component and/or HDMI)
DVD box sets of TV series are a popular item for collectors, giving them a chance to own and view single and combined seasons of their favorite shows whenever they choose. However, the costs of purchasing these box sets can add up, and for those looking for a different way to compile a collection, it is possible to record these shows (and movies and other programs) onto DVD, with a properly
Purchase a DVD recorder with a digital TV tuner, such as the Panasonic DMR-EZ28K. Using a direct connection from the cable outlet to the DVD recorder to the TV will be the method of choice when no cable or satellite receiver box is also in use. By connecting this way, usage will be very similar to how a VCR is used to record shows off TV.
Connect a coaxial cable from the wall outlet to the coaxial input on the rear of the DVD recorder.
Determine which type of cable you wish to use to connect the DVD recorder to the TV, based on the types of inputs available on your TV. This can be either coaxial, composite or S-Video for standard-definition video, or component or HDMI for HDTVs.
Connect the selected cable from that output on the rear of the DVD recorder to the corresponding input on the TV.
Turn the TV and DVD recorder on and use the recorder's remote control to select the channel to be viewed and recorded. Open the tray and insert a blank DVD.
Select the recording mode if your DVD recorder offers that option. Press "Record" when you want recording to begin, and press "Stop" when reaching the end of the program.
Use a peripheral method of connecting the DVD recorder when a cable or satellite set-top box is in use and when you wish to receive optimal HD video when not using the DVD recorder. Start by connecting a component or HDMI cable (or coaxial, for non-HDTVs) from the output of the receiver box to the corresponding input on the TV.
Connect a composite audio/video cable (red and white plugs for audio, yellow for video) from the output on the receiver box to the composite input on the DVD recorder. You may also choose to use S-Video instead of the yellow composite cable if your devices offer this. Connect similar cables (or use component or HDMI cables for higher quality video when viewing DVDs) from the recorder's output to an input on the TV.
Select the channel or program you wish to record using your cable or satellite set-top box (or DVR, when available).
Load a blank DVD into the recorder, set the recording mode and press "Record" when the program you want to record begins, and press "Stop" when finished.
Tips & Warnings
DVD recorders with a TV tuner can also be programmed to record at a selected time, much like a VCR.
Consult the owner's manual of your particular DVD recorder for further operating instructions.

Hi, this problem can most likely be sorted out by obtaining and installing HDTV or H.264/MPEG CODECs. OR Whatever the CODEC you need is. To find out, simply discover what the "Format" that the TV station sends it's Pictures in, this can be say, MPEG2 MPEG4 DivX, AAC, H.264
If these CODECs cannot be, selected, used & loaded or upgraded then it may simply not be possible to use it. Not ALL DVR's will decode and record ALL TV transmissions, the receiving/recording device
Also this message will appear if the station trying to be viewed is a pay-per-view, and one doesn't have a subscription etc.
If you could once record, and now it will not, then perhaps try to reset the device back to Factory settings, and then simply trying to reset it all up again.
Now if this doesn't seem to help, then it's possible that there is an internal fault? if this is suspected then the best thing to do, will be to contact a Panasonic local or head office and ask them for a referral to an authorsied service center, when you make contact here, ask first for a "Quote" as to the cost of the repairs, and then you can make an informed decision as to what to do, repair or replace.
