    I recently got the above box for my father. The subtitles lag behind the dialogue by a long way. It seems to improve a bit when the set has been on for a while. Is this a fault or the norm?
    Also, I have difficulty getting teletext. It doesn't appear when the text button is pressed.
    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    No more updates from Panasonic so i'm afraid to say the receiver will have to operate with a few extra bugs and no 7 Day EPG.

    Expect to see the new Panasonic TUCT30 in 2004.

    Thanks for replying.
    Will the software updates that can be downloaded eventually enable 7 Day EPG?
    Or is this not possible wthout a new converter?

    I'm afraid Panasonic announced they will not be updating the TUCT20 however this may change when other manufacturers begin adding the new 7-day EPG in January.

    Samsung have also abandoned updates on their receivers but as far as i can tell the new TUCT30 when released next year will work with the 7-day EPG.

    Can i recommend calling the Panasonic helpline they should be able to tell you more.

    Rang Panasonic helpline. The 7 day EPG should be available by January and a software upgrade will be downloadable for the TUCT20.

    Well, that is a strange dilemma, a member of my family owns the receiver and called them 2 months back and was informed the box would no longer get updates. I shall have to inform him of the news.
