Panasonic DVD HD recorder

by goldmankind / July 26, 2009 4:31 AM PDT

Ok here is the problem Im in the Uk I have a Philips LCD tv with a freeview tuner built in and a Panasonic DVD DMR EX75 Recorder with Hard disk with built in freeview Tuner. So I Can normally record different to what im watching recored and play at the same time do time slip and such things. Normally in the past when I play back a recording and at the same time happen to be recording at the same time i would only have the playback sound now im getting sound from the playback and the recording at the same time because im obviously playing back through the EXT 1 DVD channel. Or if the DVD as been left on tuned to a receiving channel i will Have both sounds. So im now at the position where I cant record and play at the same time which is how analogue VCR's were.

Anything changed?
by WildClay / July 27, 2009 9:27 AM PDT

Did you change anything before this started happening? Anything, like add an A/V receiver, mess with the cables, added an input to the DVD recorder.

If not then it sounds like (no pun intended) you have a problem with the DVD recorder. I have 2 panni DVD Recorders and both support playback of something recorded while recording something else at the same time and like you did before, I only get the playback sound.

Now on mine I have each recorder hooked both directly to the TV and to my A/V receiver as many times I don't turn on the home theater to watch say the news. But since I am hooked up that way, if my TV is selected to DVR and my A/V receiver to the Cable Box then I will hear the DVR from the TV speakers and the Cable Box channel from the home theater speakers.

I suspect something is wrong with your DVR though, I have never had it literally record both the sound from what I was playing and recording on a single recording so when I played it back both were there. I also can't imagine how you could even get it to do that if you wanted to unless everything was hooked to your A/V receiver and it has some kind of mixer function.

Sounds like it time for a trip to the repair shop. One thing you might try first is unplugging your DVD for a couple of days and then plug it back in and see if the problem goes away on its own.

Good Luck!

No nothing as changed its just a simple set up with R/f cables and Scart Lead Ive tried it in every combination of euroconnecter sockets also put TV an DVD back to shipping conditions and re downloaded stations again but its the same. Im Convinced its a DVD problem but Panasonic have been less than helpful. I may Purchase a Humax Digital TV Recorder and Connect the Panasonic one up on another scart lead just for play back from the Discs.
