Panasonic View TV in Tv Listings


Standard Member
Hi All,

Just a very quick question....

I have a Panasonic Viera (TXP42S21B).

It would appear that I am unable to continue to watch the TV whilst searching the guide??? The screen is full of the listings and the sound vanishes??? On over Tv's that I have owned you are able to maintain watching/hearing the channels - I have searched through the manual to no avail.

One other question - on the guide, there are two boxes to the left hand side that simply say ''Viera'' - are these meant to do anything??? It looks like they should be doing something???

Any help that you can offer is greatly appreciated.

Many thanks for your help in advance and have a great New Year

Exactly the same scenario here on a V20.

I don't think it's a glitch as such,just the way Panasonic,in their infinite wisdom,decided it would be.

Those 2 grey Viera boxes are for advertising,though I've never seen any products mentioned on mine,whereas the EPG used by Pioneer does carry ads.

Personally,I find it irritating that those boxes take up almost 1/3 of the screen estate with nothing useful at all.
