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).

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.

Choose from a wide selection of apps or use the web browser for easy access to the Internet.

PANASONIC DMRHWT150EB is rated

This was very easy to set up especially as I have a Panasonic TV, however, I found the controls on the remote are not easy to decipher especially when you wish to view something you have recorded.
There is no button to press to go straight to recording like on the Humax remote control, one has to go through a couple of button presses before you get to where you want.
Perhaps after a while you will get used to it but surely Panasonic could have and indeed should have made it easier

Product has all the needs for visual entertainment
Product gives us all of the features that we needed in a recording box including playback and I Player.
Instruction book of 80 pages is a daunting and for somebody not tec savey could be totally bewildering.

I'd echo most other reviewers' positive comments on this box. Good picture, good range of functions, inc. web browser facility BUT unfortunately the live Pause/Rewind/Fast Forward options leave an awful lot to be desired with significant delays experienced in switching from Live to one of these functions and between one another. Quite disappointing and if you're looking for a seamless transition of these aspects then I'd suggest looking at something else (e.g. my current BT Youview box is perfect for this). For this reason alone I do not recommend this product.

Neat presentation and plenty of listed Freeview features.
My expectation was of a clear and easy to understand user manual, but found the instructions and procedures a little complicated when compared to a previously owned Humax (Freesat) PVR unit.
However, the live TV pictures have excellent definition, as are those recorded on playback. When using the remote to operate various modes and functions, the unit is a little slow to respond. Have yet to utilise all the various on demand services but look forward to long service and reliability on this Panasonic product.
