I recently connected a Panasonic EH50 to my cable box to record TV shows. I had been using it just for transferring VHS tapes to DVD’s for the last few years so it’s been awhile since I used it this way. I went through the TV Guide setup and I can control the cable box and record shows, but for some reason when I go to enter a channel number above 2 digits it will not change properly. For example if I hit 253, it quickly changes to channel 25 and then to 3 right afterwards. If I set the timer to record that channel it will change properly, but I can’t do it manually.
I seem to recall during a previous setup procedure where it asked how I enter channels for my cable box, like 9 would be “09”, etc… up to 4 digits, but I did not get that this time. Am I missing something obvious here? I have another EH50 that works the way I want it to, but don’t see anything different on that one and can’t find anything about it in the manual.
I’m sure one of the fine folks here must remember how to do it, please help.
