PIONEER DVR-540h

They dealt with a lot of plot points in the first episode, which convinced me, that they were telling us, that this series was not going to cover the same ground the film did. Where they are going I...

The Panasonic DMR EH59/69 machines are still available at B&H World-Import and Gandhi Appliances, maybe other places as well, I only checked these three. I have been wondering for a year how much...

Though unpopular here, I have to agree with you on this. I just don't get all the praise for this show.

Asking a collector what he does with his collection is like asking a miser what he does with all that money. I have archived some disks that I have never watched, but always intend to. The problem...

You have already been in contact with Mike. He is the best source for this and if he can't help you, I doubt anyone else here could. :( I would guess that sending it to him for repair would be, um,...

Jeff, I'm sure if he had access to other machines he would have exercised those options, but when you have a choice of one, you just take what you can get. The Panasonic EH59/69s are still available...

If it hasn't already been done, your E85's power supply capacitors have probably failed causing this problem. reformatting the HDD won't hurt it, but if it's the power supply, it won't help it...

Every country it seems is in the same condition DVD recorder-wise. The product seems to be at the end of it's life cycle. Strange considering how many DVDs I'm burning these days.

I recommend you make the DVDs no matter what else you decide to do. Imagine the loss if the HDD should fail. They do that you know. A backup is always a good idea.

I had to laugh at his assistant when he referenced Highlander. It was so perfect for the situation, unless they were in a universe where Highlander was never a show, it was begging to be referenced.

As has been said, Panasonic's prefer -R media over +R. The PLUS media is supported, but the machines definitely prefer the DASH media over the PLUS.
