I registered an external hard drive, USB HDD 2TB, to my Panasonic DMR-BWT955. However, after registration the Panasonic DMR-BWT955 seems to kill the external USB HDD. The drive select says "No USB Connected". I could connect the USB HDD to my computer before but not after registering to my Panasonic DMR-BWT955. Cannot trust using another new external USB HDD. This happened to two new external hard drives. Very grateful for some guidance or a solution.

I have a 955 which worked well for a while. Now, programs recorded on the HDD will not play back. This was an intermittant fault at first, but is now chronic. Is there a fix?

After setting and recording a Timer Recording, It still shows as a Timer Recording that is still recording. On the left most column the recording Red Circle is shown.
I cannot delete it, a message says "Cannot delete, Timer recording is in progress".
This recording was made 5 months ago.
I can now only have 2 not 3 recordings made at once.
I cannot change settings "while a recording is in progress"
How can i delete this Timer recording.

Have you tried 'watching' the program that is being recorded. Press "stop" & following the prompts i.e. "do you wish to stop recording?" Press "yes". This usually solves the problem for me.
You can also try the following: go to "program check" on the remote. find the 'program' which is being recorded you wish to delete/stop. Hold down the Red button (not the REC button) on the remote until the red circle turns grey & then delete the program. Hope this helps.

Program was deleted after it was watched months ago.
It was then that i attempted to delete it, 2 other Timer Programmes were able to be deleted.
The red button only greys the clock symbol next to the Red Circle.
The Red Circle is always there, as if a recording is in progress, when it is not.

Other info :
The Space column has a ! in it, the info button provides the following :
Timer recording is not active
! Some part or all of programme may not be recorded.

Thank You for your help, any other ideas Please.

Can not read or play 4K Blu-ray movies on Panasonic Blu-ray Disc recorder BWT955. Please advise

No....the reference to 4K is upscaling to lift the quality...to play 4K video you need Ultra HD, mine is a standalone machine, whereas my recorders are HD with upscaling...
So Blu-Ray is fine, just not 4K. Hope this helps.

My Panasonic DMR-BWT955GL was purchased on 27 November 2020 and generally was performing well.
The only issue I have had with it is playing blu-ray disks (purchased – Region B). From day one it has been difficult to get the device to recognize and play them. I have only succeeded in playing one purchased blu-ray disk. Normal DVDs were playing OK. Today I have tried to play several blu-ray disks (purchased – Region B). At first there was sound but no video. After trying several disks, attempted to reset to shipping status. Now device is not working. When turned on - Hello - Setup – Region Select - NSW/NSW. Cursor can’t be moved – Screen shows DD1. Please help.

An hour or so later the reset appears to have completed and the problem may have been resolved.

I've had my DMR-BWT955 for around 3 months.
Often, when I turn it on it freezes on "Hello" and if I attempt to turn off using remote it remains on "Please wait" without turning off unless I disconnect at the power point, wait a few seconds and re-connect.
Also, the volume control on the remote occasionally does not work even though Panasonic sent me a replacement for the original. Marty

Have been using my new Panasonic DMR-BWT955 recorder for a week with no problems except, it does not have a program reminder option? Normally once you are in the program guide and on a channel. One click on the ok button should set a reminder and a second will set the record time. I have checked the option on previous recorders and it’s available, but for some reason it’s not available on the BWT955? Any opinions... cheers
