I would like to add a E85 to my system and use in tandem with my existing E80, but I am not entirely convinced there would not be problems with the remote actuating both when I just want to control one. I know you can set the remote code selection to 1,2,3, etch, but since the remote has to control all selections I don't see how it can control one without affecting the other.


Has anyone tried this? The same question would apply if I wanted to add a separate Panasonic DVD player, which apparently use the same command codes. Is anyone using a Panasonic DVD player in the same system with a E80/85?


Thanks.

I have 2 sets of Panny recorder/players (an E80 and RP82 in one room and an E30 and S47 in another). No problems to report with the remote codes. The recorder just flashes CHK REMOTE whenever a player command is issued. This doesn't have any affect on record/playback when the recorder is operational.


I've never had the 2 recorders in the same room. So I can't comment on that.

I have two e-80's and an e-85 in the same rack with one remote set to code 1 the other set to 2 and the last set to 3. No interference at all some times it is a little confusing in that the recorders not in use will flash their remote codes on the recorder's front panel display. When I am using two or all of the units there is no interference.

Thanks all. That is what I needed to hear.

I have two E-80's and a Panny player. Once you ignore the flashing, as Macsog mentioned, another problems is remembering which remote goes with which device. I find that decorating the remote with stickers, colored tape, or Sharpies can help make the remotes identifiable for quick and hurried grabbing.

Also, HoustonGuy suggested once that re-inserting the remote in the plastic bag that it comes in will protect it from spills. Doing so also enables the above identification methods without ruining the remote.

I discovered my E100 remote will open the tray on my E85. The E85 remote does not have an "open-close" button.


Since the DVRs are not in the same building, I've not needed to change the remote codes.

That's true for lots of devices, e.g. VCRs too. Often the lower end models have the same internal firmware, but have a remote with fewer functions.

Stickers, colored tape and sharpies? :confused: Bro, you really need a universal remote.
