    Can anyone help
    I bought a Panasonic DMREH50 at £400 partly on the strength of some blurb on their seb site about ease of recording

    Here it is copied
    --------------------------
    Electronic Program Guide 'GUIDE Plus System' (EH50 only). Cant find the TV listings? No problem. Our built-in program guide provides a handy on-screen list for checking what's on. Setting up to record a broadcast is easy too, Simply select the desired program from the displayed list. Better still, you can search for desired programs using by genre, so you'll never miss one you want to record.

    ----------------------------------------------------------
    Can't see any reference to it in the manual - anyone else know what and how to action it?? :confused:

    Thanks the-mac

    The UK version does not have Guideplus. Panasonic have decided not to adopt it on their budget models due to some UK specific limitations, e.g. a lack of bandwidth and the fact they are going to be implementing the Freeview EPG on future models.

    Thanks for the info

    their website though extols the virtues but doesn't say - forget it if your in the UK

    What other features are only available in non UK models?

    Can we believe any of the Panasonic claims for any of their products??

    One angry customer here
