    I am sure this is possible but last night found a glitch on my panny 85.
    Was trying to record TV to the hard disk while playing a DVD and got a message telling that it wasn't going to work.
    Thing was it was a region 1 DVD (Law and Order - Criminal Intent series 3 in case is dvd specific, which I doubt).
    Anyone else tried this ?

    That's a standard trait of Panny's... you cannot record a PAL signal whilst simultaneously watch an NTSC disc. It should be in the manual for your recorder.

    Thanks for that. manual for the 85 not a jolly read I must say. Are there other manuals as bad I wonder.i
    Tis verily a bummer.

    Apart from that v.happy with the box though. picture much better than my expensive but now obviously too aged pioneer player.

    Just in case anyone is in doubt, I can confirm that the manual for the E95 was also written by someone with a Master's degree in "Providing Comprehensive Information But In A Way That Nobody Will Understand". And it can't record PAL while playing back NTSC either.
