    I have an RC299H connected to a Panasonic TX-26LXD60 Veira TV, connected by HDMI. I would be grateful for help on the following problem:

    In the setup menu, there is no option for the UK to autoscan. I have chosen "other" which only picks up terrestial TV channels (BB1, BBC2, ITV, Ch4 and Ch 5). Yet my TV shows all the Freeview stations. I cannot find a way of getting the RC299H to prick up these channels.

    This also means I cannot record (onto DVD or VCR) any of these other channels.

    I can play DVDs/Videos without problem. I can also record from terrestial channels and use all of the editing functions to tidy up the recorded files.

    I have looked in the User Manual for both the DVD player and the TV but, sadly, am none the wiser. I guess you will have already realised that I do not have a great deal of technical expertise!

    Can anyone please help me identify what I need to do to get this unit to talk to my TV so that I can record from Freeview channels? Words of one syllable would be needed.

    Many thanks for your time.
