    Having recorded a tv/satellite program using a panasonic e55, is it possible to make a copy of it, using another e55 ? If so kindly advice how scart connections are made between the 2 dvd's and the tv. If dvd-r discs are used ,should they be 'finslized' before copying. Are there any other steps that one should take? As a novice your invaluble advice is immensely appreciated.
    Thanks
    Ladislaus

    Try the foll:

    1=e55 player
    2=e55 record

    so: 1 (av1) to 2 (av2); 2 (av1) to tv. Set input/output on both machines to rgb. As long as you play the dvd-r on the machine that it was recorded on then it doesn't need to be finalised. But for simplicity and no other reason, I would just finalise it (unless you want to add further recordings at a later date)

    Thanks for the advice Ben 223.
    Set up as suggested but only the sound comes through but no picture on tv screen. The display on e55(record) shows T3; instead ,as I expected to be AV2. I checked the recording and only the sound is recorded.However when the e55 (record) is switched off, the picture and sound appears.Any further thoughts? Thank you.

    Hmm.. check that all scart plugs are fully engaged in the sockets. It is essential that all scart cables are fully wired too. I have used the same set-up with no probs albeit on an E85 But I wouldn't have thought that would make any difference though.

    Could also be the signal type which they are set to. Make sure that the players AV1 setting is RGB output and the recorders AV2 setting is RGB-input, otherwise the recorder will not be able to recognise the incoming signal.
