Mike, Ledbury Home cinema enthusiast

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Excellent easy set-up, and timer recording is also easy to program. Overall picture and sound quality is superb. Once connected to the internet, access to iPlayer is quick and again the quality, over a fast broadband circuit, is amazing.
Bad points:
Remote control is difficult to navigate and it takes ages for the recorder to boot and then go into record mode. Also, using Vera link adds to the confusion, owing to the fact that response time is so slow you tend to click off and onto the option again. Until the link is mastered, the process is frustrating.

Manufacturer's Description

Blu-ray Disc Recorder with Twin HD Satellite Tuner compatible with Freesat+ and 500GB HDD

DIGA’s H.264 encoder compresses the recorded programmes at a lower bitrates but retain its high-definition resolution. The images are crisp and clear due to advanced compression technologies that are optimized to match each scene. PHL Reference Chroma Processor Plus is a high quality image processing technology developed to precisely process each pixel of the Blu-ray Disc™ video signal. It reproduces colour data with twice the accuracy of conventional systems to keep colours faithful and sharp.

With more than 140 digital TV and radio channels to choose from it’s fairly likely that at some point you will want to record two programmes broadcast at the same time. The freesat+ Twin Tuner allows you the freedom to do this and offers a multitude of other viewing and recording options.

The 35-hour long time archiving in HM mode is also convenient for saving hard disk space. In HM mode, a maximum of 35 hours of high definition recording data can be save onto BD-RE DL/BD-R DL (50GB).

DIGA becomes more convenient with addition of Rewind Live TV. On top of Pause Live TV which let you pause live TV programmes as if you are watching recorded programmes, Rewind Live TV will allow you to rewind live TV to the scene which you want to, upto 2 hours, so you won’t miss important moments. *Rewind Live TV will be effective while channel stays the same. *The function of Rewind Live TV does not work during simultaneous recording. *For Pause Live TV, when 8 hours pass since the programme was recorded, the recording stops.

Using DLNA technology, Panasonic Blu-ray Disc players and home cinema systems can access files on the DLNA Server Blu-ray Disc Recorder DMR-BS880 or compliant PC. By simply connecting to Home Network (LAN), you can enjoy AVCHD, JPEG files and recorded programmes on your DIGA or AVCHD, WMV, and JPEG on your PC.
