Featuring new Freeview Play, the Panasonic DMRHWT150EB is at the forefront of digital set-top box design.

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 playback 4K video recorded to USB, the DMRHWT150 makes the ideal companion for your 4K TV.

Record up to 500GB 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 500GB built-in hard drive you can record up to 258 hours of programmes in SD or 129 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much better than Humax Bought this to replace Humax fvp-4000t which was absoloute rubish compared to the early units they used to make. So far the Panasonic is very easy to use and has a more user friendly interface compared to the Humax. Richer Sounds were brilliant and took the Humax back for a full refund against the Panasonic. Their customer care puts Humax to shame.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to set up and use I went shopping for a Humax and came home with this and I'm very glad I did. After the usual helpful and informative service at RS this was the one to buy. From opening the box to all set up, including wi-fi connection, was no more than 20 mins. I had to enter the code for an LV TV so that the remote could control the volume, but once done that was fine too. A neat, good looking device. Intuitive menus and controls. I have no hesitation in recommending it and T.W. Richer Sounds. Thank you James and Alex. You were right.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Much better than expected! Having long been a fan of Panasonic products I was admittedly put off by some of the negative comments I found here and in other review sites. With that said however and after carefully considering my options and choices of products I eventually made my decision based on my past experiences with Panasonic. Installation took an hour or so but only because I like to clean and tidy the cables behind my home cinema system which I also purchased from Richer Sounds 3 years ago. Moving on to the initial setup sequence I found this very straight forward and didn't need to consult the manual. All steps seemed intuitive and simple to understand. Unlike the other negative comments which initially had me undecided about this product I actually found the 'Programme Guide' (EPG) quite quick to navigate and after setting a 'User Profile' to display only the channels I watch regularly navigation of the guide was made even easier. Admittedly I did struggle at first to discover how to enable my 'User Profile' once created and this information seemed distinctly absent from the user manual. Fortunately however I did find the setting required shortly afterwards and whilst browsing the various different menu options. As I was replacing an older Panasonic Freeview Recorder I was quite familiar with the 'EPG' and I'm happy that Panasonic have made considerable improvements in the look and functionality of this particular feature. Okay it's not as eye-catching as some other brands and it lacks the finesse provided on some other products but I favour functionality and usability over fancy gimmicks. Onto recording, again this seems straightforward and I didn't need to consult the user manual to figure this out. As others have mentioned there are a few unnecessary steps in order to set a recording but as with all products we have to learn new ways. For me personally I've never had any Freeview HD Channels and so the addition of several of these was a welcome improvement. My first recording in HD was by far superior to what I'm used to with Standard Definition and at least my aging Panasonic HD TV can now finally benefit from these new channels. Although I'm yet to try out this feature I'm pleased that Panasonic added the ability to off-load recordings onto a connected USB drive, this was a feature I requested on my previous device and so it seems like Panasonic might have listened, yey! Incidentally this was another reason for choosing this product over similar other brands which didn't include this option. The only negatives that I can see so far is that the 'Freeview Play' guide lacks content, i.e. most catch-up channels show no information in the EPG which is a shame as this was one of the reasons I bought this product. Whether that's a fault of Panasonic or whether Freeview Play is losing popularity I can't say. Likewise the absence of a secondary 'Audio Out' connection at the rear of this device seems more of a penny pinching exercise by Panasonic and one which loses points in an otherwise good review. Last but not least I'd like to give a special mention to Gilbert at RS Milton Keynes for reserving this product for me yesterday. Thanks Gilbert! I did phone ahead to check stock levels and was quite worried when Gilbert said he only had one left. I was greeted by Gilbert when I arrived a couple of hours later and he seemed friendly and engaging and happy to help. That's one of the reasons I return to RS and I've come to expect nothing less. I favour RS over other retailers anytime. Completing my purchase was easy and I also asked to include the 6 Year Supercare Warranty for peace of mind though hopefully this won't be needed, at least I can claim back that additional cost if I don't make any claims, win-win! All-in-all, another great experience from Richer Sounds, thanks guys!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than happy with my purchase This is the second DMRHWT150EB I have. I bought one based on customer reviews in March and was delighted with it, so bought another for a TV (Panasonic) in another room. They're easy to set up and use and have more features than I'll probably use, but that's probably a plus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use I was looking for a freeview recorder to replace our existing virgin package. I was very impressed by the service and information on the product we received and the easy setup and use of this unit. I would recommend this product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Let down by poor csutomer service We very rarely watch programs while they are "live", preferring to schedule our TV programs. After a few months some of the recordings would break up at random, the picture becoming pixellated. I checked all cabling and tried my old PVR - all ok. I returned the unit to the store and it was sent away for testing. It came back, no fault found. I have direct line of sight of the transmitter from my roof. I was advised it might be a weak signal (which was 10/10??), I had a new aerial installed. Same fault is still happening. Signal strength same at 10/10. When the unit came back, there were no new recordings, and it was still tuned in to my local transmitter. I doubt it was even turned on. I think one of the two tuners has an intermittent fault, and it's pot luck as to which one is used. I don't see the point of taking the thing back again, only to have a repeat of the same. The Panasonic HWT150 is a great unit when it works but don't expect Richer to do much if you have any faults.
