I can't quite believe that my new Panasonic TX-L32D28BS LCD TV with HD satellite and HD terrestrial built-in "tuners" has a Timer Programming limit of just 15 events. [I connected a 1Tb drive via USB to the back.]

Panasonic's response to my complaint and suggestion they increase this limit to (say) 45 via software upgrade was "tough titty" and "we have no intention of doing anything about it" and "nobody else has complained".

I programmed in a number of regular events I want to record week-in, week-out. [I'm a fan of Sky News and BBC News newspaper reviews so we are talking a number of short ones every day.] Add in a couple of weekly programmes going on at the moment and I rapidly ran out of available slots.

(a) Surely I'm not really the only one left bumping up against this absurdly inadequate limit of 15 as Panasonic claims and also (b) I presume this is a common limit across the Panasonic range?

It's a TV which becomes a PVR also - if you attach a hard drive to it. I've had a number of general satellite receivers going back years which were satellite receivers but added the PVR function if you added a hard drive.

If I had known how useless it would be I wouldn't have bought the 1Gb drive in the first place.

Why this ridiculous event limit? What's the point?

Considering the fact that the overwhelming majority of posters here are from the USA and Canada, you most likely are.

No. I don't mean the only one here; I mean the only one period - as Panasonic is claiming.
