Panasonic DMR-EX769 DVD recorder - Pocket-lint


The DMR-EX769 brings together a range of features that modern lifestyles often demand. It not only gives you all the advantages of Freeview+, but also

Plenty of options, great DVD playback

Menus a little basic in appearance, single tuner only, power save mode makes it a slow starter

Panasonic DMR-EX769


No-frills DVD/HDD recorder but it does a fine job of the basics

Smart styling, easy to use ; good tuner, faithful recordings ; decent 1080p DVD over HDMI

Tired interface ; low on frills ; relatively small HDD

A quality bit of kit.


A one box solution to the digital switchover. So one remote and you have freeview, a dvd recorder/player and also a hard disc recorder. Panasonic quality evident throughout.
