TV/DVD/Sky Connectivity (Panasonic DIGA DMR-EZ48VK - DVD recorder/ VCR combo)



[qanda]This thread is about the Panasonic DIGA DMR-EZ48VK - DVD recorder/ VCR combo. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]I am having extreme difficulty in connecting yesterdays purchase of Panasonic DMR EZ48 DVD/VHS recorder to connect with a Pace Sky box onto a Sony TV KVE2512 via Scart.
Just cant get the recorder to see any signal from the Sky box. The Sky box works fine by going direct to the TV via scart.
Taking scart from Sky box to the DVD combo and then from there to the TV cannot get the recorder to see any stations when connecting by using the 'Auto-Setup"

Connecting as follows:
Sky signal to Pace Box Dish input- Scart output from Pace (Scart VCR) to Recorder (AV2 Ext- From Recorder AV1 (TV) Scart output to TV (1).

Have also tried the Red/White/yellow connections from recorder to TV with same result.


Have you selected the input to av1 ~ 4 on the recorder?
My recorder sees the sky box on av2!


The recorder can’t tune the stations, so the “auto-setup” won’t work. You have to manually change the channels on the Sky+ box. The recorder will see the video input on whichever input the Sky+ box is connected. Simply select that input on the recorder.
