Could be much easier to use....


The biggest flaw with this recorder is the Electronic Programme Guide (EPG); it is much less user friendly than previous models and we found it prone to skipping around all over the place. Recordings were fine and the set up was not particularly...

Great piece of kit


Really pleased that the quality of this unit is up to Panasonic's normal excellent standard. I had read reviews saying it was difficult to set this unit up. Thankfully I had no problem whatsoever, allowing auto install do it's stuff. As is the norm...
