Disgusted with Panasonic
Since invented I have always purchased Panasonic DVD player/recorders. Worked well until this model purchased Sep 2019.
Panasonic has lost the plot & is plain lieing.
Lie 1 - Box says Twin Tuner - it is not - post purchase found out only twin tune records if 2 channels are same frequency unacceptable.
Lie 2 - Box says "Optional" HDMI not provided get home & find HDMI is not optional it is a must or you can't connect the unit to TV. Unacceptable. More out money required - unacceptable.
No RCA outlets to connect audio to amplifier unacceptable.
Purchased in September 2019.
Very happy with this unit.
I bought this unit to replace a Samsung pvr, which was the pits, and a complete waste of money. Samsung weren't interested in helping with the multiple problems I encountered, so I decided to cut my losses and bought this Panasonic instead. Sooooooo much better in terms of ease of operation and reliability. It has a larger memory, and records with precision. This only issue for me is placement of the buttons on the remote, and the fact that they are a little small for my chunky fingers. Apart from that, highly recommended!!

There is still NO mute button.
They have also changed the posi...

Re: Panasonic DMR-BWT460GN.
I can record (on hard disc) and playback a show in widescreen (16:9) but when I transfer this show to DVD the show is transferred in 4:3 aspect. What setting am I missing to transfer the show to DVD in 16:9 aspect?
Recorder is on daylight saving time, would like it on Qld time
