I've bought a Panasonic DVD recorder (DMR ES20D) today since I'd read a professional view that it is an ideal machine for archiving PVR recordings to DVD. It also has an inbuilt tuner, which I thought would serve as a back-up if (when?) something happened to my Humax 9200. I can record/playback DVDs OK but only programmes rec'd via the Panasonic's own tuner. This happens even if I first use the Panasonic's AVR button to switch to AV2 (which displays the Humax's output on the TV). I've tried many combinations of scart connections but to no avail. I'm now wondering if, like the Humax 9200, the Panasonic will only record from its own tuner. The Panasonic manual suggests it will record from "external devices" but just gives a camcorder as an example. Can anyone help on this matter, please? (I'll give details of my connections, if this will help.) I had helpful advice recently from this forum on a similar matter so I'm hoping you can come up trumps again!
