    Hi all,

    I just bought this DVD Recorder and something has really bothered me since figuring out how to use it.

    If you set it to record using the 'timer' the DVD Recorder goes into a standby mode, which is forcing me to lose my tv upstairs.......as soon as you press the 'timer' button the machine stops sending a signal via RF upstairs to my bedrooms, :suicide:

    If I just sit here and press record then its fine as that doesnt put the machine into standby but by pressing that darn 'timer' button it must put the machine into 'standby' and therefore not able to send RF/UHF signals. I still have picture in living room as its scarted but for all other tv's in house I have nothing.

    Doesnt the above seem kinda rediculous - why must a DVD Recorder go into 'standby' just to record a timed recording!? Are all DVD Recorders like this???

    Nick

    Not quite sure what you mean - split it where? Bear in mind that the NTSC feed going into the Pani doesnt have a UHF Signal so it relies on the Pani to send the signal???

    In which case I guess you are stuck with it then. Panasonics new models don't have to be be placed in timer setting. So they have caught on to this but rather late.

    I had assumed you were feeding the normal RF aerial via the loop-thru.

    So the new RX75 (think thats the new model) wont have to be put in 'timer' mode??

    If what you say is correct then I will take this back and wait for the new models to come out!!!
