Ok so last night was good up until about 9.30 for us where there was a huge wave of about 20 times in a row.
I Rang Panasonic this morning and they were great about it and have passed it up to there tech guy. I have also emailed Tony who I was talking to the link to this thread to show its not just me that's having this problem. I would say everybody who has this unit is experiencing this if there are 3 of us already having this problem on a brand new product.
Email to Tony.
Good morning Tony and thank you for your assistance this morning.
I purchased our DMR-HWT260 about a month ago however have only been using it for a couple of weeks since dropping out of sky (Aren’t we all)
As I outlined there is a random fault where a black screen will flash up for 1 to 2 seconds. This can go in waves of where it will do it for up to 10 -12 times one after another with up to 30 seconds of clear picture between.
Signal strength is 10/10 as we in line of sight at the tower.
It is not only just me that is having this problem other people are too. I would like to direct you to a thread on a message board where we have been discussing this. We have all tried swapping cables out etc and all different types of settings but nothing seems to stop this problem.
By all means please join the forum and post anything we may be able to try to resolve this issue.
I really like this unit and it would be a shame to have to return it because it’s not fit for purpose.
I have attached a small clip of it doing it so you can get an idea of what is happening.
Here is the link to the message board where it’s being discussed."
Tony if you could please just let me know you received this email so I know it made it through would be most appreciated.
