The law does allow you to copy DVDs onto another format (for example a hard drive) for personal use. However you must retain ownership of the original DVD disk. You cannot copy the disk to a hard...

I suspect that the reason for this is that the Panasonic, like many TVs, can apply different settings to every input source. So if you had inspected the Picture menu for HDMI 2 and 3 I would bet that...

The final run from the cabinet to your home is copper wires. So there is always potential for those wires to pick up electrical interference from nearby lightning. Even more so if they run overhead...

I would not buy a tuner with a single aerial input for both FM and DAB. And certainly not a single aerial if I was intending to receive both formats.

A single aerial would be a compromise, it may...

They might not have been able to block the payment because it has already gone through. But you could ask if they can do a chargeback, which in very crude terms is taking the payment out of the...

As I said Q-Link is for the SCART inputs only so should not be involved. If Viera Link is off then that tends to suggest it's not HDMI control causing this.

One thing you could do is unplug HDMI 1...

I suspect it isn't actually a mains lead but a AC-DC power supply, similar to a mobile phone charger.

If so then it should have a label on it giving the DC out put voltage and current.
