John, WGC I love technology

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
A good looking product packed with features. Simple to use basic functions. I'm still scratching the surface on what I can do with it
Bad points:
None on the unit itself. The manual though comprehensive doesn't seem to cover all possibilities and I've not done anything complicated yet. Annoyingly when I use the remote it also operate my Panasonic Bluray player which I could do without.

Manufacturer's Description

DVD Recorder with Digital Tuner, USB Terminal and 250GB HDD

Panasonic has developed the DMR-EX78 with even higher image quality. Picture quality is better. DVB-T Adaptive Noise Reduction detects and removes the block noise that often occurs in digital broadcasts, to produce beautiful images with minimal noise. And the enhanced quality of 1080p Up-Conversion and rich color gradation of Deep Colour compatibility are seen in deeper, higher-resolution images. The Diagonal Processing automatically detects diagonal lines in motion images, and converts them to sharp lines.

The new VIERA Link function of the DMR-EX78 is more advanced. Auto Preset Download does away with the need to make channel and other initial the DMR-EX78 settings. Direct TV Rec. lets the user start recording the TV program that is currently being watched by simply pressing the VIERA Link button on the VIERA remote and selecting Direct TV Rec. Pause Live TV pauses a TV program with the same ease as pausing a DVD disc. The rest of the program can then be watched at a later time, right from the point where it was paused.

The DMR-EX78 is equipped with a USB terminal, so images from a digital still camera can be easily transferred. A large-capacity hard disk drive lets users store music data and turns the DMR-EX78 into a virtual jukebox. It supports gracenote®, In short, the DMR-EX78 goes far beyond the point of easy video entertainment to function as a personal digital media server.

In the SP mode recording, 384Kbps high sound quality recording provides audio quality approaching that of commercially available the DMR-EX78 movie software. Even with music containing a wide range of tones, such as orchestral performances, the sound of individual instruments are beautifully reproduced.
