I am contemplating the purchase of a Panasonic DMR-E500HS PVR with DVD recorder. According to the information on the Panasonic web site:

"To use this function, your DVD recorder must be connected to a TV antenna and able to receive a terrestrial broadcast that includes EPG data in the transmission. VCR Plus+ will not be available unless the DVD recorder has retrieved EPG program listings. "

Is the EPG transmission part of normal cable transmissions? I am subscribe to analog Time Warner cable in Dayton, OH and do not have an antenna.

Any inputs would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

Don

Hi Don,

We have the Panasonic DMR E95 and analog cable. Apparently the listings are transmitted through cable as well as antenna.

We love the 95.

I have the E85, and digital cable from Time Warner. I could not get the program guide, and after much telephoning discovered that Time Warner is "having technical problems" with the program guide, but is working to correct the problem. I am staying tuned. Attempts to get it through rabbit ears anteta failed.
