    Hi all,

    Is it not possible to use the remote control of tha Panasonic E55 dvd recorder to also switch on/off the PW7 plasma TV ?

    I assumed it would work, provided the E55 remote has TV controls and seen both are Panasonic, recent releases, it seemed logical to me this wold work, but nothing really happens if I'd push the TV controls on the E55 remote...

    Any idea if something has to be configured or this just not possible ?

    Works fine with my E65 and PW7. The TV button on the E65 remote switches the panel on and off. Worked like this out of the box.

    Ha, the power button on the DVD remote does nothing to my PW7. No reaction at all. Also the plasma has this little led which flashes when it receives signals from it's own remote, but it doesn't when I push the so called TV buttons on the E55..

    Anyone with an E55 tried this ?

    My E55 TV power button works okay on my PHD7.

    Good luck finding the answer to your problem :)

    yes, they are the ones...i'm just wondering if your remotes are using different codes as the e55 and pw7 were bought in different countries?

    My E55 remote will turn off my PW6 (as will the remote of my Panny TUCT20) and as the PW7 is more up to date, you would have thought it would. I think there's a section in the E55 instruction booklet on how to make the TV button command other remotes. I can't recall whether mine worked without any code or I had to programme it.

    Aye, that's true... the plasma's from germany and the dvd I bought locally here in Belgium. That would be real dumb if those are incompatible because of this. May be I should call panasonic about this..

    i agree it would be, but a lot of screens / TVs have multiple code options and you have to select the right one.
