I picked up an open box Showstopper PVHS1000 recently from a store that was going out of business. When I hook it up to the TV, all it does is a constant demo loop explaining the joys of using ReplayTV. Obviously, this was a store demo unit.


Does anyone know how to do a factory reset on this model? I may have to send it in to Panasonic to get a new image on it anyway as I've heard that the latest software can't be downloaded to the older PVHS1000 units.


I could open it up, but then I'd void my warranty. I'm not afraid of opening it, but I'd like to make sure it isn't a complete lemon before I go tweaking it.


Thanks!

Try this:


Press 7-7-7 then the Replay Zones button. Follow the on-screen instructions.

I assume that unit has never connected to replay servers. If so the operating system will be version 2.0 which is no longer capable of connecting to replay servers. You will need to either send the recorder to Panasonic for the (possibly free) software upgrade or you can do the upgrade yourself http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...58#post1339558
