Panasonic's latest Blu-ray player/hard-disk recorder is one of the first to incorporate Freeview Play, the new connected TV platform that combines live broadcasts and catch-up TV in a single EPG.

Limited functionality while recording ; Sluggish EPG ; Dated DLNA playback menus

Picture quality excellent

I'm old school and the new sets have all the facilities for internet connection and masses of downloads which I don't need, just a first class picture, an easy to negotiate menu and excellent sound (to offset some of the current poor actor/actress vocals!
