    I've just purchased my first tabletop DVD Recorder - the Panasonic DMR-E55.

    I've been doing lots of VHS-to-DVD transfers using my PC but this has been very time-consuming. So I've decided free up my PC and bought the DMR-E55 instead... Yesterday, I transfered an E-240 (a little more than 4 hrs) VHS to DVD-R without any fuss. The DVD plays ok on the Panny.

    The problem is - it doesn't play in my other DVD players... I have the Pioneer575 and Samsung745. Both players play all sorts of DVD variants without any problems, except this one DVD copy from the DMR-E55.

    And the DVD doesn't play on my PC, too !

    Can anyone please please tell me what the problem is? Thanks.

    You must finalise the DVD after you've recorded to it, otherwise it won't play on any other machine.

    I also have this DVD recorder, is it easy to set it up for recording off VHS?

    Could you maybe post the way to set it up or the best way to set it up

    Yes, piece of cake.
    two choices:-

    1/ Connect RF lead from VCR to E55, set Ch6 on DVD to the same as on VCR.
    2/ Connect SCART lead from 'out' of VCR to 'AV2' on E55
