Prime breaks up and often loses signal completely on Panasonic Viera TV, but all other channels fine and so is Prime if I tune through Panasonic DMR-XW380.
Any ideas?

Have you checked and compared the signal strength on each in the setup menus?
Maybe you have a marginal signal on Prime and one tuner is more sensitive than the other.

Can you check if you get break up on MTS or Parliament TV? Prime sit insides a multiplex so to prove it is an issue on the mux on your installation, can you attempt to check these other channels?

Check the signal strength on your equipment. You might have some reception issues just with that multiplex.

I think it may be the TV itself now, after 1/2 an hour or so the problem seems to disappear. I suspect a cap somewhere in the UHF tuner is giving up.
