    Hello all,
    I've just bought a Panasonic DMR-E55 DVD recorder. I've connected it up to my Sky box and TV okay but am having problems with tuning in the TV stations through the standard TV RF aerial. The auto-tune picks up BBC1, BBC2, ITV1 but cannot find Channel 4. When I try manual tuning to "Channel 21" (where Channel 4 is located on all my other bits (tv/portable/vhs etc) I just get an incredibly ghosty image that keeps cutting out to a "no signal" message and back again. If I connect the RF aerial straight into the back of my TV then channel 4 is there perfectly.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?
    Thanks,
    Graham.

    I think that is the rf channel used by the e55 by default. Hold the function button down for 5 seconds and if it works the same as the hs2 you get a menu to alter the rf output channel.
