The Panasonic DMR-HWT230 puts Blu-ray movies, HD TV and apps all in one place. Recording is made easy with the user-friendly programme guide, while twin Freeview HD tuners help you to avoid annoying timetable clashes. Thanks to DLNA, it’s also possible to stream media straight from devices on your home network.
Because the recorder is equipped with two HD digital tuners, two different TV programmes can be recorded simultaneously.
By registering at new Panasonic Remote Recording Service, you can navigate and search on the EPG and set timer-recording of TV programme using a smartphone or tablet. Using this service while watching TV, you can set a different programme for recording without interrupting the one you’re watching.

With up to 260 hours of HD recording there's space for a whole selection of episodes and movies.
Faster operation and start-up times. The EPG displays, Direct Navigator appears, and the tray opens quickly after pressing the button. This is the fastest DIGA operation ever.
