We have had a Panasonic DMREH50S since last July, and have been very pleased with it in all respects. However, now we are having a "problem" and I would appreciate any comments, suggestions, feedback, etc. Perhaps it is something obvious which I am overlooking, but I don't think so.
For the last few months, my wife has had the DVR record "Young & Restless" on Channel 2 each weekday at 12:30-1:30 PM and it has worked fine.
However, since sometime during the week preceding Christmas (I don't know exactly when since we were out of town for the week) it appears to have stopped automatically making the recording each day. The schedule entry was, as far as I can tell, unchanged from what had been working fine or at least that is how it appears to me. I tried deleting it and adding it again (totally manually, using VCR Plus, using TV Guide, whatever) but no luck.....12:30 PM would arrive but recording wouldn't start.
Did some further experimenting, and this is what appears to be the case: scheduled recordings on any channel but 2 (I tried several others) seem to work entirely as intended. However, if you schedule a recording from Channel 2 and the machine's power is off when the start time arrives, it never goes into record. If you happen to be standing there and manually turn the power on during the desired show, it starts recording from that point. On the other hand, recordings of programs on Channel 2 automatically begin just fine **if** the DVR's power has been left on.
Does this sound familiar to anyone ???
Thank you in advance ! Will watch this forum for replies.
