Panasonic DMR-PWT550

 

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.

Extensive features and file support ; Superb Freeview HD and Blu-ray pictures ; Clear, intuitive EPG layout

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

Nice Box, shame about Book

 

Managed to install this myself to replace a Sky box. That was the easy part. Knowing how to get best use out of the thing proved more difficult despite being reasonably tech savvy. The user manual is just about useless so trial and error and YouTube...

I purchased this device because my old Panasonic recorder was beginning to show breakup on replay. The picture breakup was much worse on the new one. I purchased online because it was not in stock in the store and the assistant have trouble trying to...

I would not buy this product again

 

I purchased a DMR-PWT550EB in January 2018 and it was quick and easy to set up. However it quickly developed a consistent fault on each start up, stating it had found new channels. If exit was selected rather than retuning the recorder the recorder...

Good purchase!

 

Set up was very straightforward despite rather off-putting, overly complicated instruction booklet. Remote doesn't appear to operate DVD player which is the least sophisticated aspect of the machine. Otherwise very good features.
