Panasonic DMR-PWT500 PVR and Blu-ray player


The Panasonic DMR-PWT500 fits a Blu-ray and DVD player into a personal video recorder with a HD tuner -- it's like the Samsung BD-C8900, except with t...

BD, DVD, TV, 3D in one device ; Built-in Wifi ; 2D to 3D conversion

The convenience is expensive ; No VIERA Connect video-on-demand service ; Limited functionality while recording

The Panasonic DMR-PWT500GL represents a convenient all-in-one product for consolidating your media consumption -- it can handle Blu-rays, DVDs, digital TV and 3D content. It's not perfect though -- there's no way to get your recordings off for...

Panasonic DMR-PWT500 review


You might think that a Blu-ray player with a Freeview HD recorder shoehorned into its case would suffer from clicks and thrums, or that co-habitation would add unflattering pounds.

Compact; excellent Blu-ray pictures, good Freeview HD recording

Limited file support across a LAN; limited UK portal content; daft 3D picture processing; small HDD

Get Freeview HD and 3D Blu-ray in one go with Panasonic's impressive combi recorder.

Lots of features ; Flexible recording and editing functionality ; Outstanding Blu-ray and hi-def Freeview picture quality

Poor EPG ; Comparatively limited web content ; Noisy SD pictures

However, there is an Ethernet port and a second USB port specifically designated for Panasonic’s TY-CC10W communication camera, which is required if you want to use Skype video calling – one of this unit’s most alluring features.

A Freeview HD PVR which also has a Blu-ray player built-in

Impressive picture and sound ; record two channels at once ; network and internet access

No BBC iPlayer ; some have bigger hard disks ; separates perform marginally better

Good editing facilities. Excellent image quality. Built in Blu-ray player a bonus at cost of stand alone PVR

Bonnes caractéristiques


Mais ATTENTION cet appareil n'est pas compatible avec les décodeurs Canal+. En effet il n'y a qu'une sortie HDMI et pas d'entrée ni de prises Péritel. Il est dommage qu'il n'y est pas de sauvegarde des films sur Clé USB ou carte SD. La WIFI est un plus...

Que du bon !


Pour l'instant, que du bon, efficace, le double tuner HD permet d'enregistrer deux émissions à la fois. Le seul inconvénient c'est de ne pas pouvoir transférer les enregistrements à l'extérieur mais c'était écrit dans la notice et les vendeurs avaient...
