    Hi

    My Panasonic e60 has been playing up this week, it stopped recording twice and then went into 'recover' mode while trying to delete a program from a DVD-Ram disk. Now it won't access any of my unfinished dvd-r's (which it could do quite happily before) and asks me to format the disk! It also gives me very bad feedback from the aerial, despite removing all the sources that I can think of and changing the RF settings.

    I bought it from Richer Sounds, so I'm strongly considering taking it back and getting my money back as they don't seem to stock the e60 anymore.

    The questions is, do I go for another e60 or has something come out in the last 6 months? The Toshiba dr1 has had good reviews, should I get that instead?

    I use the e60 for DV archiving, so a front dv input is a must, Telewest digital and archicing my video tapes. I'd like to stick with -r as I bought loads of media for it.

    Any thoughts appreciated.

    Cheers

    Dude

    Before you give up try playing a commercial dvd, this sometimes sorts the machine out and resets it

    No idea, just playing a different type of media can reset the machine and the fault goes away
