Tony, Potters bar

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
It's got all the channels you could ever need. No need for subscription no monthly payments. You can pause live TV so you want miss a thing. You also can record your favourite programs if your going to be out. So glad that I got this wonderful bit of kit wish I got this sooner.
Bad points:
The remote control is a bit sensitive I.e I put the remote down on the sofa next to me and a few seconds it would change channels or it would turn off with out actual touching it. Apart from that it's pucker.

Ian, Chelmsford

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Picture quality excellent.
Bad points:
The instruction book is very difficult to understand because it doesn't start with the basics at the beginning. All the complicated possibilities confuse from the start.

Trevor,

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Good picture on recorded programms
Bad points:
Not easy to use but that could be because it is different from my last recorder. I have a Panasonic TV and they seem to fight between themselves who is going to display the picture. It may be different with a another tv make.

Leon, Hassocks Retired elderly gentlemen.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Easy to set-up and use particularly if you have a Panasonic vieri TV to connect to it.
Bad points:
I haven't found any bad points either in use or design, with one small exception; the remote control lacks a vital ingredient, (a mute button)
I always mute the intrusive sounds of adverts.

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.
