Make the most of your Blu-Ray player. View our hottest deals on HDMI cables.

A top quality Blu-ray player and fully networked digital set-top box all in one - the Panasonic DMRPWT550EB is a versatile performer.

4K UHD upscaling and 4K JPEG playback

With 4K UHD upscaling on both Blu-ray and hard drive, the DMR-PWT550EB makes the ideal partner for your 4K TV. Although not as good as native 4K, upscaling from Full HD gives superior detail and realism. Taking this even further, this Panasonic Blu-ray combi also offers 4K JPEG playback, giving you the ability to see your photos on the big screen in the highest quality possible.

3D playback including 2D to 3D conversion
As you'd expect from Panasonic, the DMRPWT550EB offers a detailed and natural picture quality. 3D compatibility lets you view 3D Blu-rays on your 3D TV, plus there's 2D-3D conversion. 2D-3D conversion allows you to watch any 2D material up-converted to glorious 3D.

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 and archiving
With the ability to record 4K content (MP4) and playback 4K video recorded to USB, the DMRPWT550 makes the ideal companion for your 4K TV. If you've signed up to Netflix, you'll also be able to enjoy 4K playback via the built-in app.

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. 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 DMRPWT550EB.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Will not play DVD RAM discs It was not clear when purchased that the machine will not play DVD RAM discs -d despite these being invented by Panasonic. It is mentioned in tiny print on page 10 of the Operating Instructions. It almost seems designed to make it difficult to mix media and machines for example you have to register a USB HDD to the device but a registered USB HDD cannot be used with another device

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Excellent service from Richer Sounds ! I bought a Panasonic DVD payer recorder. DMRPWT550EB and I wish I had not done so. The user guide is totally useless. The player / recorder sometimes records and other times does not. Having owned two similar Panasonic machines before this one, I felt fully conversant with the operation, therefore it should work correctly. I contacted Panasonic for help, they did not even bother to reply. Richer Sounds were very helpful, and kept me well informed about purchase and delivery. Fortunately, I had taken out a 6 year warranty, and sadly it may not be long before I need to use it. I would not buy Panasonic again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does exactly what I want. I already have a one of these Blu-ray player recorders which I bought from Richer Sounds Bristol a few years ago. My fathers humax has been playing up so we thought we’d replace it with another one of these. Easy to plug in set up and use and the guys at Richer Sounds Bristol are absolutely spot on as always. Thanks guys.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great machine....confusing manual. This is a good machine but I found the manual totally confusing. Once you work it out, basic functions are quite straightforward. Only 4 stars given because of manual.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Panasonic DMR-PWT550EB. Picture and Sound quality spot on. The respond time when chase playing is a little slow and clunky but apart from that I'm very happy with the Panasonic DMR-PWT550EB.This is a replacement for another Panasonic HDD recorder which performed faultlessly for a number of years.
Date published: 2021-02-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a good replacement for our old model 95% of the use for this recorder is to record to the HDD programmes to view at our convenience. The other 5% is to use the freeview feature to watch programmes we missed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this again Bought this to replace my ancient Sony recordable DVD player with hard drive. I could not find a Sony one so went for this one. Very easy to set up, good quality, so far have only used it to record programmes and watch DVD's and have had no problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes watching movies so much better. Bought this, along with a new bluray player earlier this month, paired with a set of Yamaha speakers, now working through all our films just to experience the greatly enhanced sounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent headphones I have been after a pair of noise cancelling headphones for sometime. Sony were recommended to me by friends and having used Richer Sounds I thought I’d have a look at what was available. I am really pleased with the headphones I bought and at such a good price. Excellent performance and really comfortable. Highly recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Neat little box that makes viewing simple I had an older DVD and HD recorder which was no longer able to update to all the new channel changes. Combined with that I also had to use my laptop to connect to streaming channels as I do not have a Smart TV. I was contemplating buying a Smart TV, but wanted to retain the ability to record channels so I do not have to rely on a broadband connection, which is not very strong in my area. The fact that it has a LAN connection made it perfect for me. This recorder does everything I require other than being able to copy files onto DVD.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Features and picture Easy to set up, Freeview works well, twin tuner recording far better than recording from TV to external HDD, picture quality playing Blue ray discs good. A good upgrade from my old HDD player.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine. Bought this recorder before Christmas to replace an older recorder and found it Very easy to set up and use. Got plenty of use over the holiday period and not been a problem Ordered it online and collected the following day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just what we wanted! This is the third version of this PVR we've bought. The Hard drives do seem to give up the ghost after a couple of years but oddly ours started working again after we'd bought this new one, so we now have a new one just in case! The EPG is easy to understand and having the Netflix button is handy. Having the two tuners is also very good and gives a lot of flexibility. Freeview plus is also a great feature plus a dvd/blu-ray player, all very useful . Overall good value for money.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Overal......But Works well, but very limited connections- no optical out at this price point is really poor. The remote is good, but an old design with no DVD tray open/close button. This sits on top of the machine, alongside the power button. HDMI conection is by ARC to a soundar and works very well indeed. Source selection is automatic, as it use to be with SCART.The most annoying thing about this recorder is to be watching a programme on TV input, and a timer recording is due to start. The recording will fail unless I switch the recorder off first! The aerial pass through is unpredictable and needs a very strong signal- i.e. a signal booster. These are faults that were present in a much older Pansasoinic recorder, disappointing to find they have not been eradicated. Wi-Fi connedtion is very good, but very limited pre-installed apps.A mixed bag, then, but not much choice out there due to the onward march of streaming.
