Bronwyn B.

Bronwyn B.asked

I just purchased this player. Do apps such as 9Now, 7plus, 10play or any Freeview stations come with this player. I was led to believe when purchasing that they do. I can only find Netflix, SBS On Demand and ABC IView.

Hello Bronwyn,
I did not own the player long enough to carry out a thorough test of the player. My disappointment was that compared to my older model, it was limited in it's ability to record and timeshift or save free to air video. The hard drive is not compatible with my computer once formatted to Panasonic's format method. There is no DVD recording ability and compared to my older model which does, it was a complete disappointment, so I returned it for a refund.
Regards

Purchased this player last August 2019 & would like to know the procedure to allow a Region 2 DVD to play, in fact it would be great to have a setting procedure to allow any region to play.

Chris M.asked

How do you record 2 channels and watch 3rd channel. I can record 2 but cant switch to 3rd channel

1 answer

Hi Chris, your unit is only a 2 tuner product so you can only view/record 2 channels at once. What you mention would require a 3 tuner unit.

Hi Tracy - Unfortunately someone forgot the obvious in the design as far as I'm concerned. This is my 3rd Panasonic DVD player (not their best product I have to add and each and every one of them has has a problem) and strangely enough my 1st one had a remote button for this , which was I hasten to add back in 2009! When I queried this with Panasonic they said no-one used the button. Really? Clearly they didn't ask the right people!

I have a DMR-PWT560. Whenever I try to access the internet function I get a message saying the network is under maintenance.
I can access Netflix with no problems so my connection is good, other unrelated machines have full internet access but this doesn't.

Hi Mal - Unfortunately I'm unable to help you as I don't use my recorder for much more than watching DVD's and recording television programs. I would do as Panasonic has suggested and contact their customer service team. I hope they can resolve the issue for you.


CJB

CJBasked

Recently upgraded to the Panasonic DMR-PWT560 everything worked from the start but recently had an issue whereby I could not access the internet or Netflix option. I kept getting a message asking to check the network connection. Which I did and could see no issues when I ran the test, as it advised that I was connected via the wireless router. I turned the player off for a few minutes and when I turned it back on I was then able to access Netflix but still not the Internet. Any suggestions on how to correct this, greatly appreciated.

We have a new Panasonic DMR-PWT560 connected via HDMI to a new Sony television. I have recorded some free-to-air programs and havent noticed any problems. Tonight, my PVR was set to record one program and i was watching the output being sent to my television but the picture and sound kept dropping out. I ran the output to various HDMI inputs on the television but no improvement. It would drop out for about 2 seconds (no sound, no picture). These dropouts would happen approx every 30 seconds. Watching the program via television tuner was fine. I suspect the PVR ouput to the HDMI port is faulting. The PVR is 1 month old and has been fine until now. Rather annoying. Any ideas?
