I will just switch on the equipment upstairs then I can tell you the exact message it displays but it is something like "not available" will be back soon
Using the TV remote - Menu - Setup - Link Settings - Veira Link On
Using TV remote - Viera Tools - Viera Link Control - Displays "Feature Not Available"
I have tried this before for 5 mins but have actually then plugged them all back in so have now unplugged all the 3 pieces of equipment and will wait 10 mins and follow your reconnection sequence exactly. Fingers crossed.
TV power cord in, turned on and Viera Link option is on in TV Setup Menu.
Home Theatre power cord in, waited but nothing so switched on Home Theatre with Home Theatre remote, display on Home Theatre goes to BD/DVD then Setup.
TV remote checked Viera Link Control and again displays on TV "Feature not Available"
I have not powered up the recorder yet.
Pressed Setup (small buttom at bottom left of Theatre remote) nothing happened.
As SETUP was displayed on Theatre display screen I pressed OK on Theatre remote and the display changed to No Disc.
Turned off Bluray and unplugged it. Followed your instructions above
HDMI Video Format - Automatic
Deep Colour Output - Automatic
HDMI Audio Output - ON
Contents Type Flag - Automatic
Viera Link - On
But when I try Viera Link it again it displays "Feature Not Available"
This is really disappointing. It wouldn't be so bad if at least the Bluray Home Theatre would default to D in 1 and know that the signal was coming from the TV instead of always looking for a disc. I then have to press EXT In every time I switch everything on to get the sound working through the Bluray Home Theatre, turn the TV sound right down and use the Bluray remote to adjust the sound. Its all Panasonic equipment and yes it works but having to use 3 remotes is a lot of messing about.
It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
Thanks for your patience,
We will continue to look for a Professional to assist you.
Thank you for your patience,
Thanks I do hope you can find someone who can fix this frustrating problem for me
Best regards Dave
Thanks for your answer which maybe a solution but maybe not really the one I was looking for. All my equipment is Panasonic including the HDMI cables and all of them including the HDMI cables have veira link on the literature and boxes without exception so it is ever so annoying that it won't work. I have been in touch with Panasonic by email and politely ask the same questions as I have asked above but they are now not answering my emails. I have suggested to them that it must be a software (they call it firmware) fault but they poo poo this so I suggested it must be the way it is set up. I have returned it to all to shipping factory settings at there request but still nothing.
By some unknown fluke though, (meaning I don't know what I did), but although the viera link still displays "Feature not available" when I use the Recorder remote to switch on TV first (there is a separate TV on / off on this remote) then pointing this Recorder remote at the Bluray Theatre and pressing the main on / off both the Bluray Theatre and Recorder come on. The Bluray goes to D in 1 connecting it to the TV and as I have set the TV setup to look for HDMI 1 instead of TV all works fine. Except to alter the sound on the Bluray Theatre I have to use the Bluray Theatre remote. So down to 2 remotes required rather than 3.
Bluray Theatre remote to alter the sound and Recorder remote for everything else. Although not tried watching a DVD since the fluke happened.
The link you gave is to a USA website and it will not allow me to import to the UK. However I have found this link
can you look at this and tell me if this is the same item. I am hesitant to buy as the existing Recorder remote has a skip function that allows me to skip the adverts and wouldn't be best pleased if this was not available with your suggested universal remote and at £65 it is not cheap if it doesn't work. Some of the reviews say the previous version is better and the OK button is small but you never know who is making the review it could be someone with big stubby fingers. Sorry for the ramble but do hope you can help. Looking forward to your reply. Best regards Dave.
Hi Rusty, this is the first time I have used justanswer and I must admit that I am pleased with the service and would rate it as excellent although the information you have provided does not directly fix the equipment I have and involves me purchasing a new remote. I have already had £27 taken from my account so am I right in assuming the higher I rate you the more of the £27 you will receive? Or will it cost me even more? Also the problem isn't solved until I have your suggested remote and have it up and running. As I am about to be away now for a few weeks this isn't going to happen until mid March. If I then have problems setting up the remote and I have rated your answer I assume I will not be able to get back to you for advice.
Best regards Dave.
