I purchased a Panasonic DVD player/recorder DMR-E55 this week online. Since setting it up at home I've had problems with the sound on the internal tuner of the device. Essentially the machine tunes all the terrestrial channels successfully from a picture point of view, but the audio doesn't seem to tune in with it, I simply get a static noise instead for each channel that it picks up, despite the rock steady picture. I have a Freeview box attached to the player via SCART, and the sound that comes in through that device is fine, playing through the machine without any problems. However this obviously means that I can only record whatever the Freeview box is outputting if I want audio. Bought/rented/burnt DVD's also play normally with no ill effects to the sound. I've tried connecting it to different televisions, removing the Freeview box from the setup, and tried several sets of cables and nothing has resolved the situation. I'm left to conclude that possibly I need to change a setting somewhere in the devices setup so that I hear the audio as intended through the internal tuner, or that perhaps the device is faulty. As I want to be sure it's not something I'm doing wrong before I go to the trouble and expense of returning the product, I wondered if someone there could shed some light on the particular problem I'm having. Have I missed something obvious? The machine has come from Pixmania who are in France - could the machine need a setting changing to make it UK friendly maybe? Pretty sure I've checked everything through, but you neve know. Thanks in advance. r.
