Panasonic TV - PVR owners (troubles)

Recommended Posts

Just trying to set in some timer recordings on my Pana PVR and noticed all the times were out ; So I'm thinking maybe the 'auto' daylight savings has been implemented by Panasonic  overnight. I fixed the problem after a few goes and switched back to the TV.  Well! that changed as well, just then, so I had to change all the 'time' settings on that too.  I know daylight savings takes effect on April 1st this year so are they 'fooling' us early?

Any other Panasonic owners notice this prob today?

ps. SWMBO would kill me if I didn't record MKR properly - gulp!!

Yes my first one (DMR 550 or something) died at 18 months old. Wasn't happy, it was $500 or thereabouts and we had to buy another one because none of the other competitors versions had the Blu Ray option, grrr, curse continually changing format.

 

Had this one now maybe 6 months, hope it last a bit longer!!

 

Easy to use though, Netflix, SBS On Demand, I View etc.

 

Might splash out for an Oppo if this one dies but by then we will be around 1k down the tubes, double grr...

 

MKR- pfft. Masterchef heaps better but I'll let you tell her that mate. :D

Had a very similar timing problem once or twice with a dmrx300 .It had a problem resetting its time of the epg guide ; totally out of the blue :winky:

Good read here including how to reset manually if at all needed ?

Thanks @cwt   Yea looks like a few time change problems have been a constant issue . My previous Pana PVR had no major problem except at daylight savings time once.

Here is a weird thought -  my clock setting troubles coincided with daylight savings in the USA  .  yes l have the right time zone set on the TV and the PVR .  FREAKY ?

That looks like a good bit of gear for the money, not sure about its features compared to the Panasonic though .

does all of the above - plus

twin tuners

twin recording

4K  etc

BUT costs a hell of a lot more

I’ve not seen it this time but have seen the time go out on our Panasonic TV and PVR in previous years, at the start of daylight saving.

Daylight saving times is governed by the time_offset_table transmitted by the broadcaster; recorders / TVs respond accordingly....

We all assume, getting the time right in DVB-T is easy! I wish it were so.

 

The following Australian broadcaster Operational Practice-45 (OP-45) details all the required elements for TVs & recorders to function correctly...
