Panasonic DMR-EX77EB record mode settings


Standard Member
I have owned my EX77 for nearly 2 years now, and all that time off-air recording from Freeview has defaulted to SP mode - the way I like it.

About a week ago I connected my old VCR to the device (via SCART) to copy a tape to DVD via the HD. When it had finished I noticed that the recording was in LP mode, but this doesn't seem to have been detrimental.

However, ever since, recording from Freeview defaults to LP and I can't find the setting that will change the default back to SP. It's got to be there somewhere, but after 20 minutes on-screen and with the manual I'm d####d if I can find it.:confused:

On the remote control, below the Green button you will find the Rec Mode button for you to choose between the various modes as indicated on the EX-77's display. You may also alter this mode for each individual recording on the Timer recording screen as shown on Page 17...Box 4.
