Excerpt: I've had one of these digital recorders for around a year and a half. The motivation behind buying it is that we're not always in to catch our favourite programmes. Plus we wanted a decent quality DVD player. This seems like the suitable solution. The setup wasn't to strenuous and it had a few good options for keeping it on standby or switching it off completely which you can change later on in the machine's life.
Excerpt: I first bought this DVD Recorder about two years ago. Being a Movie Buff I liked to record a lot of movies to archive. Picture quality on VHS Video was beginning to decline and tapes were becoming obsolete. So, it made good sense to upgrade with this new technology which is now available. I found this machine very easy to set up indeed. Tuning was straighforward, and all Freeview Channels were found with ease.
Excerpt: The Panasonic DMR-EX77 range are quite nice little DVD recorders and hard disk recorders with a few features that are hard to access. If you want full specs, have a look at some supplier details, these are my experiences: This does have freeview built in and on connecting it to an ariel the the box quickly scans for freeview signals.
Excerpt: This snazzy little DVD recorder from Panasonic is quite simply a gem. It has an impressive 160GB hard-disk and Freeview PVR with a DVD burner built in. This allows easy storing of all your favourite shows. While more advanced users may look for a machine with more features, this recorder offers all the basic functions and features that most people would look for, and is also dead easy to use.
Excerpt: I bought this unit in January 2008. Absolutely brilliant. Not only is it easy to use, it makes obsolete the old VCR and all its mucking around with tapes. Of particular note is the simple recording method direct from the on-screen programme guide and the thumb nail presentation of recorded programmes that you can playback at a touch of a button. I bought a viera enabled flat screen at the same time. I found both units so good I bought the exact same system for my mum.
Summary: Bought to replace a horribly noisy Humax 9200, which was returned after 12 hours. Very impressed with how easy it is to use and the quality of recording on standard play, which is perfectly adequate. Set up was easy and it is so intuitive you hardly need the manual, which isn't a bad thing as it's not that easy to follow. Recording to DVD is simplicity itself and the SD card reader is an added bonus.
Summary: My experience of the DMR-EX77 has only been via the RGB enabled SCART socket (not HDMI). This unit delivers everything promised. The performance, when using a Virgin cable STB is brilliant on HDD or DVD-R at 4 hours a disc. A nice touch is the remoteÂ’s ability to also control the basic functions of any make of TV. The CD-Audio performance is also good and detailed, one less box under the TV.
Pros: Good Freeview tuner. Accepts external input from cable STB. Only consumes 2 watts in standby. Brilliant editing facilities, so life becomes advert free. Advert skip feature on remote. Choice of black or silver cabinet.
Cons: DVD-Audio is not supported The unit is very capable:- making it less than user friendly for somebody who just wants to record and play TV programmes. It takes effort to get your head around the UI, but it is amply rewarded by the performance and facilities offered.
