Firstly, I have found this to be a great unit, no complaints, very useable and user friendly in general. You soon get use to the 40 second startup and its not really a major. Also record quality is fine (mostly use LP) for TV and haven't any problems. Anyway some queries: 1. I have two programs (two titles) on my recorder that I want to make into one. While you can combine, or split chapters, there appears to be no way of combining two titles? Can anyone help! 2. The One Touch Record appears to only work if you press the 'Record' button on the main unit and not the remote. Have others found the same thing and what do the other Panasonic do? 3. When the unit turns off there is nothing on the display, not even a clock. Is this normal and can it be changed? If so how? Lastly here is something that I found, that is really quite good. I have my Sky Box plugged into the recorder via a 21pin SCART to SCART Cable and I have another TV in another room which has an aerial connection that has been split from that main room. Whenever you play something on the DVD recorder the signal is sent through the SCART cable to the Sky Box, which in turns sends it out via the Aerial. This means I can watch my HDD Recorder from my bedroom and the plus is that Sky can still be recorded on the recorder even though you are watching something in this way. Panasonic or the TV Tech I spoke to had no idea it would work like this but trust me it does. Cheers, Jeff.
