PANASONIC DMRHWT150EBBlack Freeview Play Recorder 500GB Hard Drive PVR
A Freeview Play Recorder gives you the flexibility to pause, record and rewind live TV, as well as being able to access catch-up TV from a variety of channels from the past 7 days.
Twin tuners unlock all sorts of clever tricks for TV fans. You can record one channel whilst watching another, or even record two channels at once.
A Smart TV is the ultimate entertainment for this connected age. They can play videos from the Internet, including BBC iPlayer, or show off content from your smartphone or tablet on the big screen.
The bigger the hard disk (HDD), the more recordings you can save. 500GB will store about 250 hours standard def or 125 hours of HD video. For audio, that's 5000 CDs compressed or 625 at full quality.
If you have a wireless network at home, this unit can hook up to it straight away, without you having to connect additional cables or buy a "dongle" or other accessory.
USB sockets allow you to do all sorts of things. Most commonly you can play media stored on a flash drive, but some units can record to one too or connect accessories like video-calling cameras.

Easy to useI 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.

Let down by poor csutomer serviceWe 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.

Complicated controlsThis 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 entertainmentProduct gives us all of the features that we needed in a recording box including playback and I Player.
