Hello folks, I'v been trying to help my friend setup his new home theater. He elected to go with the Panasonic DMR-ES20S DVD-writer as his DVD player because it would enable him to eventually make quick and easy DVD copies of his old home movies (VHS). Great. However, every single time this player starts it forces us to go through the setup process. Now, I'm certain that this is because we never actually complete it. The player has a built in CATV tuner and after asking which language we want to use it automatically begins scanning channels.... but we don't have a source hooked up to it because my friend has a digital satellite and is ONLY going to use this for DVD playback and VHS copying. If you let the device run through its channel seeking cycle it reports that it found no channels and begins again. I find it unacceptable that somebody would have to manual cancel a setup process everytime that they want to watch a DVD. Is it possible to disable this CATV feature entirely? Thanks guys!~~~ Mark PS ~ Panasonic was of zero help.
