Panasonic DMR-HW220 review

 

This business-like box is as much about the Panasonic Smart Viera ecosystem as it is about time-shifting X-Factor – and that's a good thing. For those wanting a connected TV experience without having to trade in their older TV, it's a great solution.

1TB hard drive; Smart Viera online content portal; multimedia file playback; surround sound support

You can’t take the box online if it's recording; cluttered remote; UI a little slow; SD iteration of YouTube

Panasonic DMR-HW220 review

 

The Panasonic DMR-HW220 is more than just a Freeview HD PVR. You can also use it for Catch-Up, file playback or movie streaming

Outstanding image quality ; Generous 1TB hard drive ; Lots of ‘net TV services

Bulky old-skool design ; Button-festooned remote ; Limited file support on LAN

The Panasonic DMR-HW220 is both a high-performance Freeview HD recorder and a polished internet TV streamer. Timeshift from the terrestrial HD channels and recordings prickle with detail, and subtle gradations. Pop online to Panasonic’s VIERA Connect...

Panasonic DMR-HW220 set top box

 

Panasonic's first PVR is impressively easy to use

Fast operation ; Accessible interface ; Plenty of hard drive space

VIERA Connect is inferior to Samsung and LG

The DMR-HW220 is the first dedicated set-top box from Panasonic, and it handles basic set-top box duties very well. Its Internet features are reasonable, but more useful is its capacious hard drive and smooth and simple operation.

Panasonic DMR-HW220

 

Superb 1TB Freeview PVR with smart features galore.

Impressive picture quality ; Revamped EPG ; Large hard-disk with external HDD back-up

Can’t play MKV over network ; Uninspiring design ; Some menus need a revamp ; Viera Connect not up to standard of rivals

Magic PVR

 

My last hard disk drive recorder was wearing out, the remote was not always working and it was very annoying that it did not have the TV Guide functionality which makes setting up recording so much easier and faster. Sticking with Panasonic again since...

Almost unuseable -Buyer beware

 

Anyone used to their Foxtel IQ box will have a fit having to deal with this awful device. Buyer beware: 1. Cannot record series (it only allows weekly repeats of time slots) 2. You cannot save existing movies/videos to the 1TB hard drive, in fact, if...

Not a good choice

 

While these units record and playback TV well, this DMR (and in fact all the Panasonic DMRs) have a problem that is not mentioned anywhere and you should understand this before you buy any of them. When you delete a title (say a 60 minute recording)...
