    hello all -

    i've just purchased a Panasonic DMR-EH50 & have modified it using http://www.multiregionupgrades.com/ so it'll play region 1 discs :thumbsup:

    now it'll play region 1 discs fine, except when i'm recording a broadcast onto the hdd...so in effect i cant watch a region 1 disc whilst recording at the same time. with region 2 discs all is fine :thumbsdow

    any clues?

    Probably something to do with PAL/NTSC standards. When you're playing a Region 2 disk you're outputting a PAL signal to your TV while inputting a PAL signal to your DVR's Hard Disk. When you play a Region 1 disk you're outputting an NTSC signal to your TV while still trying to input a PAL signal to the Hard Disk. Looks like the DVR can't process 2 signal streams for different TV standards at the same time.
