I have two DVDs connected to my Panasonic TV. One is a Panasonic DMR-EZ45VEBs the other DMR-EX83EB. Both work perfectly well for recording TV programmes etc. My hobby is producing DVD's via Roxio NXT. These play perfectly well on the EZ45 but not on the EX83 I get the message "Incompatible TV System Set up." Why is one playing my home made DVD's OK and not the other. I do not want to fiddle with the TV Settings unnecessarily as I might upset the one machine I can play back on. How do I resolve this. Bill
Thank you Richard.
My Roxio NXT Converts the Video to AV1. This plays on the one video OK plus other video machines of friends etc. I have not as yet tried to change the settings on the DMR EX83 as I do want to mess up the machine entirely and not get it back the way it was. The message reads "Incompatible TV System Set up" which would indicate that what you say may be correct.
I will try what you say and get back with a result one way or another.
Have tried it and there is no change. The settings on the DMR 83 are the same as the EZ45.
The EZ45 is connected via Scart and DMR 83 via HDMI. Is there a possible conflict here.
Any chance of an update re my message of the 10th January.
I have been away on holidays, and could not track your reply on the website.
To respond to your question.
Shop bought DVDs play OK.
I use Panasonic Brand DVD-R.
They are finalised by the Roxio System.
Any further assistance would be helpful.
I have checked the recordings I have made on a system I have set up in another room and it works fine. It also works of friends DVD systems, none of which incidentally are of the Panasonic make.
Hope this gives you some more information to help.
Will give that a try over the next few days and then get back to you.
Thank you for you continued efforts on my behalf. I will try what you suggest again with Scart and HDMI and see what happens.
The annoying thing is my DVDS seem to work everywhere else except on my system.
Will get back to you when I have tried all this again.
I think I have found the answer - albeit accidentally. Despite all the information you gave this still did not solve the problem so I went back to basics.
Started from scratch.
The DMR 83 has three drives. HDD, DVD and SD.
I have been inserting the DVD, switching to DVD drive and getting "Incompatible TV System Set up".
I tried - accidentally- selecting the DVD Drive before inserting the DVD, with the DVD tray open. Problem solved it would seem. I have tried this with three home produced DVDs and it seems to work - so far.
I will try this more vigorously over the next few weeks and if it fails one day - or continues OK - I will get back to you. Is this alright with you.
It would seem that you have to select DVD Drive prior to inserting a DVD.
Will be in touch
