Summary: Before buying this I read some of the reviews on these Panasonic Freesat tuners and was a little concerned before placing my order. For a while I had been considering binning Sky - I didn't have Sky HD and didn't see why I should pay ever month to watch the odd HD program.
Summary: Received this item very quickly after order. Well packaged and in excellent condition. Set up was very easy after going through the rather large complicated Panasonic DMR-BS850EBK Twin Freesat Tuners 500GB HDD Blu-ray Recorder manual. I have it hooked up to a Panasonic TX50G20 television.
Summary: I cannot receive freeview and no-one makes a 22inch freesat TV so this was the best option at the price. Only one issue - the tuner doesn't boot up my 22 in. Panasonic freeview TV as well as it does the 37 in. freesat model.
Summary: The Panasonic Freesat unit is easy enough to set up and with an HDMI cable connected the pictures are superb. HD all the way even when not viewing HD channels. The unit is considerably slower in use than a SKY box but then you don't have to pay for ever more.
Can't buy this as they can not guarantee to play all Bluray

Summary: Can't buy this as they can not guarantee to play all Bluray DVD films as we have needed to update the software on the bluray player about 10 time, each time we whatched a film and it took 30 mins to compleat but the last film we can not get an update to play it and no shop can give me a guarantee...
Summary: This was my first venture into HD, and my first into satellite technology too. Though I consider myself reasonably tech savvy, and had read a lot of reviews and forum material, I still felt rather unsure of taking the final step and actually buying something as expensive as the Panasonic.
