have you tried a different HDMI cable?

try the settings on the panny aty maybe bog standard just to see if that produces a pic?

i take it the dvd recorder is set to HDMI output?

Sounds like a handshake error to me. Try turning off both the TV and the DVD recorder, and then turning the TV back on first, then the DVDR. If that doesn't work try turning them both off and then turning the DVDR on first and then the TV on.

If none of that works have a beer.
