Is it possible to AUTOMATICALLY record a sequence of Freeview programmes from a Sony VTX-D800U STB (or any other STB) to a Panasonic DMRE95 DVD/HDD recorder? I asked Panasonic generally about timer recording of digital Freeview since this seemed to be a bit of a gap in the functionality of the recorder (and other recorders in their range). I noted that the US version has an IR blaster but the UK version does not. The only way according to Panasonic is to use the Q-Link function and to rely on the timer function of a STB that supports Q-Link to automatically switch the DVD recorder on and start recording. But other than that they didn't make a recommendation. Does this Q-Link function actually work? Has anybody successfully managed to properly record a sequence of different programmes on different channels at different times from a Sony VTX-D800U (or other STB) to the Panasonic? My initial motivation for purchasing a DVD recorder was to transfer old archived 8mm and later digital video to DVD. However, it also seemed a great way to replace an aging VCR, more convenient (with a HDD) and better quality. But to replace the VCR, it really has to be able to record all TV broadcasts properly and that today must also mean digital broadcasts. The recorder comes with an analogue tuner but surely today there ought to be an easy digital capability? Help please.
