When I bought them yesterday they were 16 bucks a spindle, just checked and they are now up to 29 bucks a spindle. You have to admit what Kelson said earlier, when you see something on Amazon at a...

The sound you are trying to describe is typical of a burned out laser on a Panasonic DVD recorder. I have had this happen to me many times, and Mike (MICKINCT) has always been able to resurrect the...

I have had no problem with my EH50s or my EH55s, EH75s, and the newer ones EH59/69s using 16x Verbatim AZO disks. I "normally" use the 8x T-Y premium -R blanks and have had no problems at all as...

I certainly had no schematics. Removing the power supply board wasn't a problem--just a few screws and block connectors. The bad capacitors were obvious, and I had found some information online...

I have replaced the capacitors in the power supply myself, bringing my EH50 machine back up to life. If you are at all handy with a soldering iron, I say go for it, if not, don't chance it, get Mike...

Boy is THAT correct. Panasonic never fully (properly) supported the + formats, but stuck in a kluge to make them sort of work and then advertised their machines as universally compliant. An...

jjeff is correct. I had an issue with Verbatim +R DL discs and my Panasonic recorders that was really weird. When I made a +R DL disc in my machine, it would start up just fine in the BR player,...

Sad, but hardly unexpected. It was fun while it lasted, but never developed the audience it deserved. Maybe too many people remember Keanu Reeves.

A bit off topic, but I have to agree. The wife and I both really liked Lynley. Eventually, I got a great deal on the (region 2) DVDs and bought them. My wife really identified with Havers for...

I was under the impression that Lewis had ended after series eight, at the request of Kevin Whately (http://us.imdb.com/name/nm0923610/). Apparently someone convinced him to make a ninth series...

I have a wired solution for this that works very well. It does require a bit of soldering and electrical know-how, but not much. It (of course) isn't as inexpensive as the kluge setup, but if you...

I hate to say it because I think that term is very inappropriately and over used, but that whole "stuck on the train" plot line was a genuine jump the shark story line. I don't think the show has...
