OK first post and I know not everyone can afford this but couldn't resist posting this deal as it is such an amazing piece of kit and is now under £800 from Amazon. It gets rave reviews everywhere you look.

Product Info...

Blu-ray Disc Recorder with HDD (500GB), Twin HD Satellite Tuner, SD Memory Card Slot and USB Terminal.

Because the recorder is equipped with two HD digital tuners, two different TV programmes can be recorded simultaneously. There is no need to worry about missing out on recording a programme when two programmes overlap.

In DR mode, the DMR-BS850 can record digital broadcasts in Full-HD picture quality. It can also stream-record and output the 5.1 channel surround sound signals (Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus) contained in HD broadcasts. When connected to a 5.1 channel digital amp, the DMR-BS850 lets users enjoy outstanding surround sound while watching a TV program or playing back a recording.

It reproduces films with colours that are exceptionally faithful to the original. The combination of the Blu-ray DiscTM software encoding technology cultivated by the Panasonic Hollywood Laboratory (PHL) and the decoding technology accumulated by Panasonic has led to the development of the PHL Reference Chroma Processor Plus," a high quality image technology for faithfully reproducing film content.

DMR-BS850 is compatible with the VIERA CAST function, which allows you to access YouTube, Picasa, and other various contents. YouTube lets you watch the newest video clips, and Picasa lets you view Web-based photos. You can also check weather and stock information on other sites.

Intelligent Auto Standby After watching and listening with the compatible Blu-ray Disc recorders, the recorders automatically turn off when you return to the TV using the VIERA remote. * 2009 VIERA TV Standby Power Save Blu-ray Disc recorders with Power Save function will turn on/off when TV is turned on/off. * 2009 VIERA TV

What a bargain.
#2
love the features but the price !
#3
How much are those freeview hard drive + dvd recorders.

Makes you appreciate technological depreciation...

Just what I am looking for! I think I'll hold off buying the Foxsat HD recorder and see how much this recorder drops

Is this the first time a DVD recorder has twin tuners? Something that has been requested by many for some years now. It would replace my DVD recorder and Humax PVR in one box - and maybe even my Western Digital HD player.

However, the price doesn't seem to be anything special. It's £779 here with multi-region upgrade.

+1 Will also probably be much better equipment as the technology will have had time to mature. Still if you really must have one today its not a bad price.

I think you'll find it's not actually available at the mo.

I agree price will keep falling - it's fallen £200 already in 3 months so will prob be £499 for Xmas. Depends how much you want it now!

This is an all in one unit that burns blurays remember.

This is the cost of 1st generation equipment mind.

but freesat HD transmissions are currently copy protected - kinda defeats the object of on board blu-ray for recording HD!

...And HD recordings are so big that the disc will only hold 10-20 BD's worth, I estimate!

You could probably build yourself a decent Home Theatre PC with an internal Blu-Ray rewriter and a DVB-S2 card for far less than £800. That would do everything this does and a whole lot more :thumbsup:

That's hardly the point though. If you want a neat box under your TV which just plugs in and away you go you buy something like this. If you want to research and put together all the bits and have plenty of time to do it all then maybe you want to build something from scratch.

In any case the price on this is not that great - so not really a deal.

But not a like for like comparison, it’s been said on other forums that the Blu ray player inside the DMR 850 is equivalent to the Panasonic DMP BD80: Current retail £220-£250.

This is a great little all in one machine; I look forward to a Freeview version hopefully sometime in 2010.

Very nice but about £500 to expensive to appeal to the mass market, but saying that if Blu Ray and it's media continues to sell at it's current slow rate I would expect a huge drop in price of this hardware and blu ray media to make this system worth buying sooner rather than later.


Thats a rather popular misconception, Blu-ray players have sold at a faster rate than DVD players had at the same stage.

Have you not noticed how DVD adverts are now giving more prominence to Blu-ray, and its only a little over a year ago since it hammered the nail in the coffin of HD-DVD.

Not true. DVD had sold about twice as many units as Blu-ray in the first couple of years.
I've seen the sites that say Blu-ray sold faster, and they twist the figures by comparing the proportion of SDTV owners who bought a DVD player to the proportion of HDTV owners who bought a Blu-ray player. Not really a fair comparison.
