DMR TV Problems

DMR or digital media receiver is a device used for the purpose of providing entertainment in homes by connecting to a home network. These devices retrieve digital media files such as pictures, music or video from various media servers or personal computers and play them through home theatre systems or televisions. It is commonly known as media streamer or extender, digital media hub or digital media adapter. Below are frequent asked questions on issues relating to DMR TV that has been answered by the Experts.

I have a Panasonic DMR, whose model number is EX75. Where do I get the instruction manual?

In order to get the instruction manual for the Panasonic DMR-EX75 model, you would want to click on http://dl.owneriq.net/d/d0a06f1a-db5e-452f-b3ec-74968cb3e8de.pdf. Here, you can get the manual for free.

I cannot set up my DMR through cable system. Both automatic and manual approach for set up prompt that TV stations are unavailable. But my TV works well. I have an NTSC cable signal and a PAL tuner. The input is cable TV coax. Is there a converter I can use?

In this case, it seems unlikely you would find a device that can convert a NTSC Coax to PAL Coax. However, it is possible that you would get devices that can convert NTSC coax to PAL HDMI, Composite, Component and so on, which could be connected directly into the TV. Thus, in a case like this, you would have the converter as your tuner instead of your TV. For changing channels you would now need to use the converter’s universal remote rather than using your television’s remote. The functionality and the quality would however remain the same.

To get a converter like this, you may visit http://www.world-import.com/Com_World_NTSC-RF1080p_HDMI_Video_Converter_with_NTSC_Tuner.htm.

My Panasonic DMR is connected to my Sharp TV with an HDMI cable. However, it says the video signal from the output device is incompatible and thus, the output settings need to be checked, once the TV is switched on. Moreover, the video gets out of sync with audio, while watching TV. How to fix this?

In this particular situation, the first thing you would need to do is to try upgrading the TV firmware. For that, you would want to visit http://www.sharpusa.com/CustomerSupport/ProductDownloads.aspx in order to find the TV software and the instructions on that. Once you click on this link, you should select the ‘Model not found’ option and then enter the product number of your model to perform a search. However, if the procedure does not solve your problem even after downloading the firmware, the best thing you could do is call Sharp and Panasonic directly. This is because the problem in this case could be with the software. Usually, these manufacturers develop new software based on the problems reported by their customers with various devices. Therefore, they can have you send the software directly.

I have a Panasonic DMR-EZ48V. However, I am unable to record one show while watching another. How do I fix this?

The model that you have can record only one channel as it has one tuner. Therefore, in a case like this, all you would need to do is use your TV tuner for changing channels when you want to watch another channel while you are recording a TV show. Using devices like a digital converter box, a satellite receiver or any set top box for that matter would not allow you to watch a different channel while recording. Moreover, keeping your TV on one particular input and changing channels with another device, would not let you see anything other than the recording program.

I have a Vizio TV and a Panasonic DMR. However, the remote code for Vizio is not listed in the manual. Which remote to use that would work for both?

To begin with, it is mostly not possible to use a Panasonic remote to control a Vizio TV as well as a Vizio remote to control the Panasonic DMR. Moreover, you would find that Vizio is listed in many of the universal remote lists. However, there are few of them that do not have this model listed. In this particular case, you may want to use the Logitech Harmony 300 remote that would work for both Vizio and Panasonic. It is compatible with your Panasonic DMR as well as the Vizio TV. If you want to buy it, you could expect to pay around thirty dollars for it.

A digital media receiver can be connected to a home network using either a wireless or a wired connection. Usually, a DMR allows its users to listen to music, watch pictures and videos, browse the internet or control Live TV from the personal computer using a TV tuner. If you need clarification about your specific situation with respect to issues related to DMR TV, you may ask a TV Technician expert to evaluate your case details and provide a technical insight.
