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 2 out of 5 by from Good for recording only now The recording function works very well even through the guide and interface are a little dated, it does the job. However since buying this in March the Freeview catch up has stopped connecting. There is a general fault somewhere with connecting to the apps an iplayer etc. The Neflix button gives direct access to Netflix perfectly and is a better interface than Apple TV in my opinion. But it's the only way to access it. The other online service functions/apps cannot be reached as the unit informs us there is no connection, even through the Netflix button access it fine. Tried to contact Panasonic about it and am yet to hear. I do know that the BBC are having an issue with Panasonic TV's at the moment and the state they are working to fix it. Unfortunately this does mean I can't recommend this unit to anyone as the main added feature of it that beats it's rivals, does not work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Panasonic Freeview Play Recorder 1TB HDD PVR Purchased some 2 weeks ago but have only just set it up. Picture superb as are the recordings made so far. My one comment is that for non techies, the user manual can be a little challenging in places. However, so far we are very pleased with the product. I would particularly like to thank Steven at the Eton store for his professional advise and guidance prior to our decision to purchase the Panasonic PVR.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Our old Panasonic HDD recorder was on its last legs. This is the evolution of that. Very easy to connect, set up and use. One of the best features is the built-in Catch-up viewing (i-player etc.) Delighted with it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use Bought 1 month ago for my wife to replace the sky box to allow recording of TV programs, total success, should have bought one years ago. Easy to use, reliable, and no subscription

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect... Well, we have owned this for about three weeks and I, at least, love it. It's far from perfect but given its cost it's great VFM vs the competition. Let's do a Pros & Cons. Cons: - Guide is slow to react. My impaint wife and daughter moan constantly about that. - There lacks a search function when recordings conflict so you are forced to choose - I still have not worked out how many things I can record at once. At present it seems to be just two which is disappointing - As we have a Panasonic TV & a separate Panasonic Blue Ray DVD, the DVD turns itself on every time you turn on the PVR which is a complete PIA. I have now literally pulled the plug on the DVD but it's frankly a rubbish workaround especially if you've kids who might use it regularly - With our TV you can hide the TV channels you do not wish to see but I can't work out how or if you can do that with the Guide on the PVR. This means it's even slower to get where you wish. - indicator lights are UTTERLY USELESS if, like me, you're colour blind. - Connecting via the app feels like its somewhat antiquated but it works. I do however feel it needs a fast forward scale 2x 4x 8x & 16x to skip the junk. To have those means one could do away with the +60 secs & -10 secs buttons - both of which take ages to work as, based on my experience so far, I suspect there is very little buffering going on in the background. Pros - Quality of output is very good. We all feel our TV picture has improved now its been moved from the junk Tivo box - Direct buttons for Netflix etc are FAB - Going back in time to automatically connect to catch up is FAB although many are sloth slow to start even though we have fibre broadband - The APP. Totally, utterly, completely brilliant. Fact is I can watch anything recorded from anywhere on any device registered so finally I get to watch what IIII want not everyone else. YIPPEEEE. That feature, for me, is worth its price alone. - I simply cannot hear the hard drive or the fan unless there is nothing else on in the room and no people either. Re-reading this review one might expect a much lower score. The fact is, coming from Mr Bolt's previous employer, nothing could be worse as both the product and the service were truly appalling. Panasonic deliver joined up products that generally work and work reliably. They do not tend to slavishly follow any form of style as they know thier audience is not that way out. That said, we do, and would, appreciate updates to address the issues we, and others, have uncovered. We wait with bated breath. If you want quality, reliability and VFM go buy one tomorrow. Buy it from Richer Sounds too as, like Panasonic, they DO give a hoot as I found out when I bought my NAD amp from the first London Bridge Store in about 1980... Happy to answer Qs if anyone has any...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I TB Panasonic Digi box Bought this box a week since so just getting to grips with it, read the revues for the Humax which were not that good. I am not a Techy but not slow either, but when it has recorded programs in the video menu, across the top are tabs with titles on i.e. films documentaries etc, but it does not seem to put the recordings into these.And up to now cannot find a way to move the recordings. so you have to scroll through all the pages to view, think even a series, unless its me ?? unless anyone can tell me how to do this, then can alter my revue .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I bought this to kick out BT TV which had been so frustrating. I went Panasonic to be compatible with my TV. I wanted the latest catch up apps and to be able to record several different channels at the same time. I had it installed, set up, and in use within minutes. Really easy to get to grips with. Delivery was really fast too as i ordered it over the phone.
