I've had my Panasonic DVD recorder for about 2 years now. One of the first, I think. I paid £499 for it. (Yes I know, now! ) It's scart-linked to a Panny TU-DSB51 Digibox. 99% of the time, or maybe 95% is more like it, all is fine and dandy. I leave it on "external link", select what I want to record from Sky's planner, and off it goes. The other times, I want to watch what it should have recorded and, and.... Nothing's there! Beggar. I really have been enjoying "Afterlife" and wanted to record last night's episode. Failed. Why? Any offers welcome, please.
