Panasonic EX75 EX85 and family. V1.16 Software - Possible issue


I've heard a report that after updating to V1.16 software, that teletext now does not work for one user, although subtitles do.

Many may not use this function so may not be aware of this.

Can any users of the above machines who have recently updated to the V1.16 software please determine whether their teletext function is working [ i.e. specifically using the machines own tuner obviously ] and report whether there is any problem please.

Thank you.

Hi Gavin,

On my EZ45V's with the v1.16 update the teletext on BBCi is fine.
Also the sub-titles are working okay.

Teletext doesn't work on the analogue channels 901, 902, 903 etcetera but I'm not sure if it ever did. I don't use this facility.


Many thanks chaps for those reports.


Just to confound me, the user who had the teletext problem says that after a few days it is mysteriously ok again.

[ He had previously tried resets and returned to factory condition to no effect. ]

Hopefully it is safe to conclude that there is no issue here after all.
