Dennis, LEEDS

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
It's so easy to use even if you're not technically minded and being able to record two programs at once whilst watching the TV is very handy.
Being able to record full series of programs is another blessing and there's plenty more other features that I don't use yet are handy for users.
I haven't got a photo.

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
None.
Bad points:
The Panasonic digital recorder would not get any programme information so it was impossible to record anything. This made the product completely useless. I checked the instructions booklet and on-line for solutions to the problem but found nothing.

Helen, Birmingham

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
None, tried two and neither would work.
Bad points:
Only found about a dozen channels and half of them didn't work. The Freeview works perfectly well on the Panasonic Viera tv that it was paired with, so no satisfactory reason why it just didn't work.
Money refunded.

Manufacturer's Description

The Panasonic DMR-HWT130 puts HD TV and apps all in one place. Recording is made easy with the user-friendly programme guide, while twin Freeview HD tuners help you to avoid annoying timetable clashes. Thanks to DLNA, it’s also possible to stream media straight from devices on your home network.

Key benefits:
Because the recorder is equipped with two HD digital tuners, two different TV programmes can be recorded simultaneously.

By registering at new Panasonic Remote Recording Service, you can navigate and search on the EPG and set timer-recording of TV programme using a smartphone or tablet. Using this service while watching TV, you can set a different programme for recording without interrupting the one you’re watching.

With up to 129 hours of HD recording there’s space for dozens of episodes and movies.

Faster operation and start-up times. The EPG displays, Direct Navigator appears, and the tray opens quickly after pressing the button. This is the fastest DIGA operation ever.

The DMR-HWT130 is equipped with DLNA so recorded programmes and AVCHD and JPEG data archived on the 500GB HDD can be enjoyed in a separate room. FLAC, WMV, AVCHD, JPEG, and MP3s can also be played from a computer.
