PVR's everyone should have one!!

published

User manual not bad to understand. Storage space ample. Recording quality is great. Seems to be reliable so far.
Haven't bought a Panasonic unit before, so still learning!! Love the thinness of it. It is a little different to our last one.
Love the series recording feature. Easy to set up and record tv programmes. Simple to play back.

Lasted 18 months

Worked great for 18 months then pop and a burning smell and it died. Could push for warranty but can't wait that long. Worked reasonably well when working but sometimes did not record. Will not buy another one will look at something different for the new one.

A very good well programmed PVR

published

You only get what you are prepared to pay for. This unit is far superior to the cheaper versions on the market don't waste your money on anything less. After mucking around with a cheap poorly programmed unit for 12 months this unit is a dream to operate. From a 1 out of 10 to a 9 out of ten.

This HDD Recorder DMR-HWT260 is a very smart unit.

published

I purchased a Panasonic DMR-HWT260 HDD Recorder Nov. last year to replace a Panasonic Blu-Ray Disc Recorder DMR-BW850 (which I have had for over 10 years and still going strong) mainly for the series recording advantage. The DMR-HWT260 is a fantastic recorder, it has smart TV connection and is very easy to operate also has brilliant picture reproduction. I'm very impressed with the automatic setting for series timer recording so as to never miss a forth coming episode of a TV series. This model does not have a DVD for playing the old CD's but it does have a USB slot which suits me just fine. The picture quality from a USB stick or external hard drive is brilliant.

In the time I've had and used this recorder I am even more impressed of how brilliant it is. Well done Panasonic, you certainly are smart people.

Hi there, how do I watch SBS On Demand on my DMR-HWT260 ? If I click on a program it says there is no video available, then it says SBS On Demand is not available, try again later.
Thanks!

Back to basics, Make sure you have internet connection. If this not problem try switching unit off at power point and restart.

I checked the manual.It says "Please use a recommended USB HDD. For the latest information on recommended USB HDDs, please check the following website http://panasonic.jp/support/cs/". Unfortunately, if the information was there I could not find it. Thanks for your answer though. Based on your experience, almost any USB HDD that I buy will work.
