Last weekend I added a Panasonic DMR-EX25 to compliment my existing DMR-EH60D recorder. The object, to replace a very tempermental and aged Pioneer player which I had been using in my bedroom. I was going to get an S52 (as it also played RAM discs) but have found myself in the position of occasionally still needing to record two things at once so I splashed out on the EZ25. I wasn't 100% sure how things were going to work out with it as the RF feed into my bedroom is actually from the RF2 socket of my Sky digibox (with a TV-Link controller plugged into the end of it) not from the aerial on my roof (which connects into the RF-in on the sky box) and was bracing myself for the possibility that I wouldn't actually get any Freeview channels (at which point I would have probably been better off with the DMR-ES15). But, I was more than pleasantly surprised. The recorder went through it's setup process without so much as a hint of complaint and I found myself looking at a full compliment of digital channels, analogue channels and it had even tuned in a channel for the RF feed from my digibox - fantastic! Better still, the TV-Link still works as well. So all in all I was pretty chuffed. The recorder is also connected via scart, so as soon as I swich it on the TV automatically switches to the appropriate AV channel. It was only while performing a test recording that I came across this gremlin... Wishing to watch something different from the programme I was recording (and as I was recording from one of the freeview channels), I swtiched my TV to channel 6 (the RF feed from the Sky box) and was about to hit the TV guide button to find the other programme I intended to watch. What I saw on the TV screen confused me for a moment, so I tried TV channel 1, channel 2, channel 3, etc... and remained confused. With the recorder switched on I can't seem to watch anything using my TV tuner (including the RF feed from my Sky box). I can hear what is supposed to be on that channel, but the picture I am presented with is a horizontally scrolling version of whatever the recorder is tuned to at that point in time. As soon as the recorder is swiched off, normal TV service is resumed. This evening I've taken a look through the recorder's settings, but can't see anything which I could potentially attribute to these symptoms. Any thoughts?
