With a mighty 1TB hard drive onboard, plus 4K compatibility and Freeview Play, the Panasonic DMRHWT250EB is one talented digital set-top box.

New Freeview Play for easy access to catch up TV

Freeview Play combines catch-up TV, on-demand services and live television to make watching what you want, when you want as easy as possible. The service is free from subscription and compatible with existing broadband services. Services such as the BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, 4oD and Demand 5 are available without having to open specific applications, giving effortless scroll-back TV (requires broadband Internet connection with a minimum speed of 2Mbps).

UHD 4K video playback via USB
With the ability to record playback 4K video recorded to USB, the DMRHWT250 makes the ideal companion for your 4K TV.

Record up to 1TB of TV programmes in HD
Twin HD tuners mean that you can not only pause and rewind live TV but also record two different channels at the same time. What's more, with a mighty 1TB built-in hard drive you can record up to 518 hours of programmes in SD or 259 hours of HD TV. In the unlikely event that you should run out of space then a separate USB-equipped hard drive can be connected up by USB and data transferred from one to the other.

Smart Networking
Connect to your home network via the built-in Wi-Fi or Ethernet and you can enjoy a wide range of Smart networking options. Choose from a wide selection of apps or use the web browser for easy access to the Internet. With DLNA compatibility you can also stream content from other devices on your network - perfect for accessing the videos you may have stored on your computer.

Remote Recording and viewing
Take control of recording, even when you're hundreds of miles from home with Remote Recording. Provided your device is connected to Broadband Internet, you'll be able to set recording functions remotely via your Smartphone or tablet. With Panasonic's TV Anywhere you can also stream recordings and live TV directly to your Smartphone or tablet (excludes BBC content). Now there's no excuse on missing out on your favourite programme!

Playback, record, stream and catch-up - it's all possible on the multi-tasking Panasonic DMRHWT250EB.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok box with some challenges I went from an old Sony PVR to the Panasonic following issues with the old box Panasonic is pretty good with the following negatives 1) UI can be slow and unresponsive 2) Not possible, as far as I can tell, to search on programs you want to record 3) Currently not possible to record HD channels (box refuses to record for some reason) I’d take it back but from the reviews I’ve read it sounds like there’s no pvr box at the moment that’s head and shoulders over the competition

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SIMPLY THE BEST I bought this item 2 weeks ago . so far so good I have found it simple to use and i am certainly not the brain of britain!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems to work well needs good broadband Takes a bit of getting used to after a Humax box but at least I haven't had to reboot it yet unlike the latter which was locking-up almost daily but then it was over 5 years old. Catch-up functions suffer badly if my basic BT broadband/Internet service is congested and running slow. Some of the most useful buttons are a bit small and hard to find on the remote so that could be improved and I can't find any search facility on the Guide which was a useful feature on the Humax but then this box seems to keep looking for the next episode even when it is missing from its regular time slot. So good so far but just hope it doesn't suffer the same problems as the Humax in later life.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as good as it should be I bought this item as the two previous Humaxs had to be returned as the EPG wouldn't work. The EPG on this machine works but that's its only plus point against the Humax. You can only record a maximim of 32 programs at one time which is very inconvenient. The interface is not partiularly brilliant and you can't seem to sort the recordings into any order such as folders. The handset is so badly designed as to continually make one hate it. It also takes an age for any button you press to actually work which means you quite often press the same button several times because you're not sure it's taken with the unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice looking recorder good visuals on tv Bought this last week very very pleased with it excellent clear pictures ( much better than my last box) I am 76 and I found it easy to use. I am always looked after well at your shops and Andrew looked after me well, being friendly and informative

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as user-friendly as the Humax it replaced Not as user-friendly as the old Humax, cannot access the TV guide when on catch-up, have to be on live TV to access anything!. When recording a programme and watching it at the same time will not let you rewind! If I had the opportunity I would willingly swap it for a new Humax, very disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lots of great features On the plus side, It incorporates many useful extra features, such as live rewind, which were not on my previous recorder. The definition of HD recordings has been crystal-clear and I like the mini TV viewers which appear beside recorded titles and when switching from the main screen. The picture copying feature has also been great for slide-shows. The network features are also good. On the downside, the handset and unit use the same IR signal as my Panasonic Blu Ray DMP-BDT260 so they both switch on at once. The HDD spends more time than I expected updating itself which results in a constant whirring when it is doing this. Overall, I am very pleased with my purchase and look forward to exploring more of its capabilities.
