Richard, Northampton Home picture taker

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
it is early days so not all functions have been used but recording tv, playing and recording camcorder film it has been very good.
Bad points:
Only tried once so not a good guide but recording from hdd to dvd didn't give as good a quality has I hoped. When played the picture was a little wavey but the sound was fine. The handbook isn't as easy to follow as it might be but this is often the case when there are so many different funtions to explain it takes a large document to cover it all.
Still need more time to evaluate this machine but first impressions are good.

Manufacturer's Description

DVD Recorder with HDD (400GB) , Digital Tuner, SD Memory Card Slot and USB Terminal

1080p Up-Conversion. By interpolating video data using proprietary algorithms, SD format data is up-converted to 1080 × 1920p HD format video data. This conversion to HD format increases the richness of the original data by approximately six fold, and produces the highest possible image quality when viewing content on a large-screen HDTV. Chroma Processor. Enjoy watching crisper and sharper video enabled by detailed reproduction of contents on DVD and HDD. Colour reproduction that is faithful to the original picture.

Auto Preset Down Load. Connect a DIGA DVD recorder to your VIERA TV via an HDMI cable, and the TV channel setting information is automatically downloaded to the DIGA recorder. Direct TV Rec. If you want to record the program you’re watching, you can start immediately by pressing the VIERA Link button on the VIERA remote control and selecting “Direct TV Rec.” on the VIERA Link menu screen. Pause Live TV lets you freeze TV programmes just like pausing a DVD, by selecting ""Pause Live TV"" on the VIERA Link Menu.

When recording a TV programme, this function determines where new scenes begin (by “listening” to the voices in the programme) and automatically inserts chapter marks at those places. This makes it easy to skip over adverts and start playback from a particular point.

To record a programme from the TV listings, enter its title or a keyword, and Navi Link will search for it to facilitate recording. Free Word Search. Enter the name of a TV programme or a keyword, and this function searches the TV listings for it, making it easy to set up programmed recording.

Intelligent Auto Standby. After watching and listening with the compatible DVD recorder automatically turns off when you return to the TV using the VIERA remote. * 2009 VIERA TV Standby Power Save DVD recorder with Power Save function will turn on/off when TV is turned on/off. * 2009 VIERA TV
