Panasonic LCD TV - TX-32LXD700
Panasonic Diga DVD Recorder with Hard Drive - DMR-EX89EB
Panasonic Diga VHS/DVD recorder - DMR-EZ49VEB

We are also on the Sudbury transmitter.

When I recently purchased the DMR-EZ49VEB VHS/DVD recorder it displayed all the TV channels after setup. Yet since carrying out a 'New Channel' update recently I can no longer get Film4 or the Yesterday channels to show in the TV Guide+ listing. I have re-tuned automatically and manually following both the manual book instructions and DigitalUK's instructions until I'm blue in the face. But still they will not show.

Am I doing something wrong?

By the way, both Film4 and the Yesterday channels show up fine on the TX-32LXD700 TV and the DMR-EX89EB DVD recorder, with excellent picture quality. So I am obviously receiving a good signal.

HELP please!!

I'm not sure what cooking has to do with anything on this site. Very strange


Two out of three isn't bad. But when you have had three out of three and lose one you tend to notice these little things.

Norm De Plume and jb38

Thank you both for your advice.

My location is Maldon.

jb38. I think your reference to the daisy chain linking to all three units may be worth looking into.

I have only had the VHS/DVD recorder from new since the 22nd November. And all three freeview tuners were displaying all channels fine then using the aerial daisy chain method.

Oh well, I shall have a play around. otherwise I'll wait until June and see what happens.

If I get it sorted I'll let you know what the outcome was. Thanks again all.

Just to update.

After trying everything I and Panasonic suggested without success I returned the unit to the supplier under warranty for a replacement. This arrived today and is now up and running perfectly with all channels showing and working.
