Found my problem - it wasn't the remote but the firewire connection. It appears that the latest firmware causes the dvr to reboot sometimes when the firewire connection activates or goes to sleep.
I have a strange problem - when I click the Apple Remote that I use with my Mac Mini (which is connected to my tv), it sometimes causes my Motorola 3416 DVR to reboot. The lights go off and a restart happens, just like when you pull the power cord. I now know its not a defective DVR - Shaw (my cable provider) swapped it out for me after the tech they sent witnessed the problem. It only seems to happen after I've been watching the 3416 for a while and then click the...
I just got a cheap fixture from Home Depot and had a lighting place special order the daylight (6500K) lamps for me...works great. Then I used black electrical tape to mask off most of the lens so that the backlight matched the reference screen in DVE.
Uh, excuse my ignorance, but what is a white scroll bar?
I also noticed that my brightness setting had to be much higher with this player. The pluge on DVE on my old Toshiba allowed for a brightness setting of 32 on my Panasonic 47x54, but with the 775 dvd, I had to set it to 42. That seems quite high - well over the 50% mark.
After reviewing the preceding 50 pages, I have attempted to convert the saved files on my Motorola 6412 PVR to DVD using the collective knowledge found there. I was able to successfully capture the .ts files from the PVR to my Powerbook using iRecord. This worked great once I got EyeTV uninstalled (which I tried as a viewer, as suggested in an earlier post) - everytime I plugged the firewire cable in, it launched EyeTV. I then used MPEG Streamclip to convert the files into...
So all DVD is 480i and the progressive players are simply providing the same service as my tv: deinterlace the 480i signal. This would imply that if you have a good tv and a mediocre dvd player, then you can expect a better image if you turn off the progressive (deinterlace) in the dvd player and let the tv do it. Do I have it right? The reason I ask is that I bought a new HDTV and my old DVD player (Toshiba SD-1500) only outputs 480i. I had borrowed a progressive dvd...
I tried messing around with the convergence last night and found that the default service menu shows resolution as 480i, which I assume is because the input is set for tuner after setting it to channel 124. When I switch to Component Video 1 which is my DVD player, it shows 480i selected with 480p and 1080i greyed out. I would have expected at least 480p to be selected and that 540p would be listed. Has anyone discovered if there are different settings for each input? Or...
I've been trying to figure out the various display modes of the x54 models by reading this and other forums, as well as the Panasonic specs. I think I have most of it, but I'm sure that there are HD gooroos here who can confirm my speculation. As far as I can tell, there are 3 display modes: 480p, 540p and 1080i. Here is how I think it all works: 1. Standard composite video input (480i): a signal received at the coax or composite video inputs is line doubled by the...
The only reason I want to find this code is that is "should" be there...its like why climb a mountain - because its there Actually, sending the "Back" command works quite well - it sets the TV input and returns to the channel that was selected before the input change. And it has a nice feel to it...go ''back" to TV.
