Just bought a Panasonic DMR-E85HEBS Multiregion. Anyone know IF you can somehow program Sky to change channels when you set the DVD recorder up to record?
Thanks

In a word... no! You have to do it using the Personal Planner.

The only thing I can suggest is you use the Sky "Autoview" feature (not available on Sky+) to switch it to a particular programme/Channel at the preset time.

The sky personnal planner, using autoview, works fine.
Scart skybox vcr out to E85AV2 then use "ext link"
The only downer is that you must use the sky vcr out as it sends the "wake up" signal. But it cannot output RGB so you record composite.

Agree with happyh - I have no problems with this method of recording, in fact it couldn't be easier, no messing around with timers or videoplus numbers and if you leave the recorder in 'Ext-link' mode when not editing or dubbing etc. it will record everything in the Personal Planner. I also don't notice much difference in PQ despite not being RGB.

I have seen a device mentioned on here which connects to both your TV and VCR out on the Sky box so as to retain the 'ext link' function with RGB output. Try doing a search on here or google.

I notice a huge difference between RGB and composite on my E85. Autoview can often chop of the start of a programme too.

Interesting point - does this happen on Sky+?
