Sorry, this product is currently unavailable.
Record 2 channels - never miss your favourite programs
Thanks to the twin tuners, you can record two channels at once, straight to the Blu-ray Recorder's built-in Hard Disc Drive. Alternatively, you can record one channel while watching another, or even record two while watching a DVD, Blu-ray Disc or content you've saved to the HDD.
With so many channels to choose from and so many recording and viewing options, it's as good as writing the TV guide yourself.
Twin Digital tuners
Freeview+HD and Freesat+HD are the only way to enjoy high definition broadcasts with no subscription and no monthly fee. With over 140 channels, including HD offerings from the BBC, ITV and Channel 4, you'll always find something to watch. Plus, because it's all recordable straight onto the Blu-ray recorder, you'll never have to miss your favourite shows again.
Pause and rewind live TV
The Blu-ray recorder's DIGA system is the new simple and convenient way of pausing and rewinding live TV. With the ability to rewind up to 2 hours, you'll never miss a thing. You can pause live TV as though you were watching a DVD.
Record with no loss of quality
With the Blu-ray recorder's DR mode, you can record HD content and broadcasts direct to the HDD without the slightest change in quality. You get the same unforgettable picture, the same crisp 5.1ch surround sound and the same subtitles and audio description. It's full High Definition in all its glory - just as it was intended and yours to view whenever you like.
Fast HD conversion
We want your HD recording world to be as flexible as possible so we offer a range of High Speed Copy Modes to make the handling of your HD content easier.
Panasonic's original H.264 Encoder provides a convenient and space-saving compression format that saves valuable space on your Blu-ray recorder Hard Disc and allows a number of programs to be saved to a single Blu-ray Disc. In addition, the Encoder ensures superb picture clarity in both slow and fast motion playback.
Copying content from the HDD to disc is not only simple; it can be done at incredibly high speeds. Your family movies and photos can be archived in full HD to a Blu-ray disc, or simply copied to a DVD so you can share them with all your friends and family. Either way, it takes very little time - one hour of full HD content can be archived to Blu-ray Disc in just one minute (HM Mode).
Blu-ray Discs allow you to watch your favourite movies and moments in stunning high definition. And the Panasonic range of Blu-ray Recorders ensures that you can experience all the crisp detail, rich colour and unforgettable sound in the way they were originally intended.
That's because Panasonic Blu-ray Recorders use high quality image technology that precisely processes every single pixel. They also incorporate 1080/24p playback, meaning images from a Blu-ray Disc are reproduced in their original form, with no need for conversion.
Our powerful processor Uniphier Chip that has seen Panasonic win many awards; offers the best picture performance for Blu-ray movies and for HD recordings.
PHL Reference Chroma Processor Plus is a high quality image-processing technology developed by Panasonic to precisely process each pixel of the Blu-ray Disc™ video signal in the vertical direction. It reproduces colour data with twice the accuracy of conventional systems to keep colours faithful and sharp.
Eco Friendly Power Features
Intelligent Auto Standby means that when you're finished watching a film on your Blu-ray recorder, you can simply press "TV" and the recorder will automatically revert to standby mode.
Furthermore, recorders with the Power Save function will automatically turn on and off at the same time as your TV, ensuring that it never uses power unnecessarily.
