DVR was the only thing I really missed after cutting my Prism Cable two years ago. Especially 'Pause' Live TV,
Panasonic does the best that can be done on DVD Recording.
I want to thank all the great posters on this Thread, I did searches on subjects of interest and then read half of 2014 and June to present (delivery was three days early).
Arrived Friday (four days free shipping to Florida) and I am really impressed with its quality and function.
It's running on 115R and don't know if I want 124R to change Remote functions.
Based on posts, I had already received my WiFi Ethernet Adapter
. I then went into my Router and placed the suggested 'blocks' on that Adapter, 192.168.0.5 but to my surprise my DVR+ now wants to load 124R
. Found DVR+ is 192.168.0.8 so I guess I won't be getting any FTP's loaded from Netgear.
I had previously downloaded 111R & 114R (and 124R) in preparation for Firmware issues, amazing that you can roll them back.
It was stated that a Factory Reset would roll it back to original FW if it forces 124R but it was apparently already there (I denied update) before I could place a block on 192.168.0.8. I know I could force it back to 114R, but mine came with 115R which must be an unreleased Flash. Would hate to lose it since everything (so far) works so perfectly
I know that Sammy TV's update on Factory Reset because their default is to 'Auto-Update'.
It did not come with that new Remote and I won't be buying one either, but 124R looks like firmware for using that Hershey Bar. The existing remote works great and before spending $15 on batteries for it, I will program my old Sony RM-VLZ620
w/48 buttons to teach, but it has its DVR buttons near the top. Even does Macros for $16.28!
DVR+ installed smoothly, found the same 24 Channels as my Sammy & Sony's. I have (several) Samsung 1 TB Drive's that had 4K Movies and Documentaries. DVR+ formatted one and is happy with it.
I have a pretty full (see sig) stack on perforated metal Cheetah (5) shelving
below wall mounted 8550 and there was just 3/4 inch high space below Center Speaker shelf.
Its just above that Panny DVD that others also like, and the BlueRay. DVD+ Remote works at least as good as theirs did. Love the Bluetooth Remote w/TV but have not got it to control the Channel Master yet. It controls basics for DVD & BD so I have hope.
So my big question of the moment is will doing a Factory Reset, keep it on 115R and lose that 124R that seems to be lurking on my DVR+ or might it Force an update?
