Panasonic DMREX77 Recorder HDMI Link

[qanda]This thread is about the Panasonic DIGA DMR-EX77. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Hi, i’m new to this forum so thought best come to the newbie section.

I’m seeking help as i’ve come to an end with what else I can possibly do. I have a panasonic DMREX77 recorder which I use with my panasonic LCD tv through viera link. However the viera link connection no longer seems to work by using the HDMI cable. I thought it was just a case of replacing the HDMI cable which i’ve done but still nothing works just a blank screen. I’ve followed all the instructions in the manuals to reconnect but nothing is working. I have two HDMI ports in the back of the tv and tried them both so now i’m wondering if it’s the actual port in the recorer that is faulty.

Does anyone have any ideas as to what I can do before sending off for repair/investigation? It’s very annoying as I can’t seem to record anything at the moment and I can’t use viera link.
