Not had need for the manual timer, but having problems with it.

Set all the corerect things then go to the program name field, enter and Set the name, what do I do next, if I press the OK key it just reverts back to the name filed..

The manual leaves this bit out, no squence given.


Thanks.

Yeah... infuriating isn't it! Instead of OK cursor left 3 times. An Orange box saying something about Digital appears, then press OK.

Must be different to the BWT720 then. On mine it has prompts on the left side of screen saying which button to press and it's the stop button to set the name. OK button does same as yours and exits without saving. Did it on me first few attempts too until I actually read the prompts.

Yes, the Stop button sets the name but its getting out of the next screen. Only way I've found is to cursor left until that orange box appears - then OK. If you OK before that, everything is lost.

OK. On the 720 after setting name I just right cursor to the next screen and press OK. Can't press OK in the naming screen as it always exits unsaved. Next screen and OK will exit saved.
The manual is not very helpful with this. Trial and error worked for me.

The prompts are not in the manual. They are on screen when you name the program.

If you are timer recording from a Freeview channel, the program name will be applied to the recording automatically. It's really only if you are recording from AV1 that you may need to manually apply an input name.

Thanks but the method to implement the setup is totally .
missing, just not in the manual.

It seems funny that you go forwards entering the data but to finish you have to go back, not very logical.

Yep. I have the XW390 as well. The hardware is good, once you figure out how to drive it. But the Manual is atrocious.

Also, for some odd reason, they keep changing the defaults, the way to do things, and the menu tree every time they release a new model. Which is a PITA when you upgrade (I'm on my third Panny, and every time I upgrade key stuff randomly changes).
