Sorry about this people !

But there must be someone out there who knows why Video Plus will not work on my Panasonic EH 60 DVD Recorder when I Input or try to input to record a programme that has only 2 or 3 Figures dfor its Video PLus Number. When I do th is a mess age comes up asking me to check the number.
The number is obviously correct so why does this happen. Surely someone must have experienced it other than myself.
Cheers. Ken.

I did not realise that there are two or three digit numbers,the odd times that I have used Video Plus there were so many digits that I had to write them down.
However,having checked with the lady of the house who uses both our Panasonic VCR's all the time,she confirms that this is so. Sorry to say she has no problem with this. I would expect the DVD and VCR to use the same Video Plus software so can't explain your problem.

I can only imagine it is a problem with your equipment, and you should return it to place you purchased it. I can input 2 or 3 number with no problems. Also a quick Google search indicates that this problem is unique to you, which further suggest a faulty machine.

Why not give them a call. Also I have downloaded the manual for this machine and it does not state that it uses Video Plus but something called "ShowView" and "GuidePlus+" which I believe is not available in the UK. Maybe Showview and Video Plus are not completely compatible.

I have Showview on my LG DVD Recorder, it is the same as VideoPlus.
