very disappointed


I bought this with a panasonic tv. The PVR remote sort of works with the tv but the functional logic is different when browsing and selecting programs. The PVR wont let you pre-select programs to watch (I miss the topfield) only to record. I was told...

Panasonic does all it should


I had no probs setting up or operating. I don't know why others have complained. Also, its a 'twin tuner' - that means it can record two things at once or record one whilst watching another. How is this confusing? If you want to record 2 simultaneous...

A little disappointed with the Panasonic machine as it is not as convenient to use as my old machine, a Beyonwiz. As I have an LG TV, it seems I should have bought an LG PVR, but I did not know enough about these machines and took the advice of a friend.

A mistake


If you are recording 2 programs it won't let you watch any other channel! My old Topfield was much better. Also I can't find any mute button on it so have to use my other remote. Thought I was buying a good product but alas, it is also difficult to use.

so easy, great performance


s critical to use the same brand TV and PVR. I could be wrong, but disasters when I didn't and easy ever since. I've moved interstate and back, swapped them from one TV to another and never had a problem (touch wood). We record almost everything, even...

The most disappointing electronic device I have ever had.


you have to do it by pressing the Input button over and over again to go through the options). If you have a disc inside the device, it will always try to play by default (this is actually common to many devices like this one), the problem here is that...

A little tricky to use.


or phone to control Youtube tv via direct wifi is a plus. But considering its price point it is a cheap way to get a smart tv, 3d blu ray player,set top box and 500 gigabyte hard drive, plus 3d blurays look awesome on my friends 4k television. I would...

A little tricky to use.


Overall i am pleased with the performance of this product, That said i have a few gripes. First it is almost impossible to tell which way up the remote control is in the dark, Second the button layout is confusing and counterintuitive. Standard...

Brilliant for Timeshifting TV!


hile I am viewing listing plays in a small picture at the top left of the screen at the last watched channel so I miss nothing. 4.Recording is dead simple by selecting the program on the EPG up to 7 days ahead or I can set the timer up to a month ahead...
