Resolved Question:

I have just purchased a DMR-HWT130 recorder which I need to connect to my existing remotely wall mounted TX-32LXD60A Panasonic TV is there an AV3 to HDMI cable connector that will save me battling to install a 5m HDMI cable connection?

Hello, Why is it that you want an AV to HDMI cable, when both the TV and the recorder use HDMI?
The reason I ask, is that to convert and AV signal to HDMI requires a very expensive converter (usually around $150 for one that is reliable), and the signal is compromised- only allowing a standard resolution video signal.
The only other alternative, would be to purchase a Home Theater receiver that "up-converts" AV signals to HDMI, but again this is quite expensive and for one that has a good up-conversion function, you're looking at close to $1,000 for an entry level unit.

I am aware of my original question on the 1st of February which has been resolved, todays question is different. What I am asking is "how do I view a separate Channel when the set is carrying out a timed recording of another channel?" I have tried many different processes but the TV stays on the recording channel, the only solution I have found is to terminate the recording.
