Over two months ago i had two panny complete combos. With "secret" help of unknown AVS conspirator i know have this:
1) $1,200 loss
2) 3 STBS of questionable performance but only one recorder!!
3) No replies from panasonic.
4) One recorder sitting in IL. Panasonic is sitting on it for two months but refuses to do any work on it?
5) I refuse to return advanced exchange which was recieved 4 weeks late! Call this communication skills on my end!
6) All this gear and i can not record jack! I can only play back on ONE of the three STB's!
7) Sure i could fix MYSELF one of the STBs which has broken firewire connector. Lets say i suceed. Why bother? A panny combo is only a true combo with recorder!!
