I had to have one of my Panasonic DVR's worked on. On the bench for less that 24 hours, and Rocky TV Electronics on West Charleston had it ready for me. This repair shop is top notch. A small diagnostics fee goes towards final repair. They'll let you know ahead of time of what needs to be done to your equipment. I'm a happy camper, having used Rock Top for nearly 15 years. They have a website.

After a week of being frozen, Majistad, KEGS 30.1, came back to life today. GET TV, KNBX 31.2, continues to freeze up for about 35 minutes each morning about 5:30 am. HOT, KNBX 31.4, is still not showing up as hoped. Old School, KHMP 18.3, is still airing the slide show without R&B music. 3ABN, K43FO-43, is still not generating a signal.....since the end of July. STZ TV, KHMP 18.5, is still a no-show.

What DVR is THAT? Other than the Panasonic-branded ones that were made by Replay (of which I still have 3 sitting on a shelf) what other DVR's did they make?

This unit was a Panasonic DME EH85, Manufactured in 2004 I believe. Rocky Top states that parts are not available any more for these models. But if it's just a simple repair, they do a good job. I'm not sure how many other models were made under the Panasonic label. Panasonic is rolling out BluRay hard drive recorders in other parts of the world. So, I'm expecting Panasonic will favor the North American market in time for Christmas or next Spring with a model.

Well I googled it & I now understand...it's really more of a DVD recorder with a HDD in it, that also does DVR functions with it. I did not know that Panasonic made such a unit, though.
The units I'm talking about were dedicated true DVR's only, that had a dedicated EPG service that updated over dial-up; later models could connect to broadband. They had built-in analog tuners, but also had (2) A/V inputs, that could control cable &/or satellite boxes, via IR blasters:
https://www.crutchfield.com/S-GyHvpG...owStopper.html

There were a couple other brands that either made &/or are still making similar devices as yours - Toshiba & Philips/Magnavox come to mind.
Magnavox actually still makes one, that has dual digital tuners - unfortunately, it seems to have some reliability issues, judging from some of the reviews:
https://www.walmart.com/ip/Magnavox-...Tuner/46444956

I had a Philips one myself from about 7-8 years ago...after only using it 1/2 dozen times, it started having issues booting up & became useless; I gave up on it...

Similar to yesterday, Moxie & Oldie on 2.5/2.6 are dark again. 2.3 youtoo is fairly scrambled again. Hot on 31.4 still missing. At midnight Sunday evening all the 31' s went over to Almount 31.1 programming. 31.1 thru 31.7. After a short time all returned to normal.

The mastermind behind RabbitEars.info informs me that K43FO's transmitter failed a few weeks ago. Their absence from Vegas airwaves may continue until a new transmitter tuned for their Repack rf frequency of channel 36 arrives and is ready to fire up.

KMCC-34 went into missing land Tuesday, taking Action and Heartland subs with them.

They're back Wednesday morning.

On a related note, KMCC filed yesterday to relocate its Las Vegas transmitter to the KINC tower.

I received an e-mail form an informed sourse that the guy behind MAKO Broadcasting, (KVPX-28, KEGS-30, and KNBX-31 Las Vegas) is leaving the country for China. The fate of his US broadcast stations, of which there's many, is not known.

Oldie Goldie 2.6 and Moxie 2.5 frequently has gone dark the past few days. Started showing programs (2.6) that first aired when it began operation in Vegas. Then 2.6 had no audio and now it's color saturated again.

That's about the normal for Oldie Goldie on KPVT 2.6. and sister sub 2.5.

I noticed Friday that KMCC-34 was once again absent. Also noticed that LATV, KINC 15.2, is broadcasting with sporadic interference. And QVC Plus, KGNG 47.8, is broadcasting in colorized lateral herringbone. This market could certainly use some additional tv engineers.

Last night at midnight i surfed the channels before retiring for the night. I stopped on 31.1 Armount and GOT was airing. And as rdvegas noted in an earlier post, i was rewarded, i mean surprised, when this poor guy was being tortured by two ladies. Full frontal nudity with one of them exercising performing squats on top of the poor captive.
Saturday morning still finds 2.6 Oldie color saturated.

While scenes from Game Of Thornes linger in CigarTimeRon's head, he also told me that KVCW 33.1 aired an episode Friday evening of Two & A Half Men with dual simul audio. Both English and Spanish airing. Now, that's a distraction.

Why is Stadium showing the same game on both KSNV 3.4 and KVCW 33.2? Makes no sense.

SNAFU seems to linger. Now 2.5 swapped with 2.6 for being washed out by excessive colors.

Sometime before 11 am Monday KMCC came back to life. K43FO is atill missing, as is Majistad on KEGS 30.1. QVC+, KGNG 47.8, seems to have cured their herringbone issue, but lost the sound in the process. Analog KGNG-47 is also still missing, and may not ever return. Old School, KHMP 18.3, is frozen on a single picture but has sound.
