Panasonic’s Freeview HD recorder can pause and rewind live programmes. The TV Series Recording function makes sure you do not forget to record your favourite programme series. And they can be archived on the 500GB HDD in stunning high- definition quality, giving you up to 341 hours of HD recording!! Since it has two tuners, the EX97 can record two different programmes at once, there is no need to worry about missing anything when two programmes overlap. By registering TV programmes such as dramas in the Series Recording function, they can be automatically recorded and stored each time they are broadcast. This eliminates the possibility of forgetting to record each programme, and lets you watch the programmes at any preferred time. Improved processing speeds in the latest Panasonic DVD recorders mean that traditionally slow operations like calling up the electronic programme guide (EPG) and Direct Navigator or opening the disc tray now happen almost instantly. Panasonic DVD recorders and home theatre systems are able to directly access content stored on external hard disc drives, without the need for an intermediary PC. This content can be music, photo or video files.
