Panasonic DMR-EX78 review

 

This deck builds on an already-accomplished DVD/HDD platform with new features

Excellent performance and spread of features

Lack of analogue TV tuner or additional digital tuner may bother some

You won't be disappointed with this feature-laden DVD recorder

Panasonic DMR-EX78 DVD/HDD Recorder

 

Panasonic knows a thing or two about digital recorders and the DMR-EX78 is a perfect example of this.

As you might have guessed, we quite like the DMR-EX78. It offers a comprehensive feature list, top-class pictures and a user interface that gives its rivals a masterclass in how to make a technically complex machine feel like something you'd find in...

250GB hard drive and easy of copying to DVD at high speed.

Program choice and record to hard drive on xp to extended play

 

Once set up great alternative to hiring " Austar set top box record 80 gb" this stores up to 6 times e.p programs the Austar product does.

Editing was very easy.

Only glitch if holding remote control in hand "program "check button" engaged accidentally lower rh

Good

 

I had a previous model (DMR-EH60) for 3 years (still working). It looks complicated at first but once you have worked your way through, it's not difficult to use. There are a couple of handy functions in the EH60 which are missing in this one: the...

Improves picture quality; once timer settings are inputted, automatically sets timer - no need to turn off recorder

Takes a few seconds to turn on in powersave mode; cannot save names of frequently recorded programmes
