[qanda]This question is published in the hardware section for the Panasonic DMR EZ28K - DVD recorder. Click here to view full specs.[/qanda]Sometimes the recorder will not record on demand. It would say "Cannot record" Â I was about to chuck the recorder out the window! Â I reset the device, but it was too late to start recording. Â Firmware update FTP site is gone. Has Panasonic done this intentionally to prevent modificationÂ (hacking) of firmware files, or to restrict consumer modifications & resulting damages?
