Manufacturer's Description

Panasonic
1080p Up - Conversion

1080p Up - Conversion
Ordinary TV broadcasts and DVD discs provide SD images with 576 x 640 pixels or 576 x 720 pixels. Today‘s newest HDTVs, on the other hand, can display images with 1080 x 1920 pixels. HDTVs require high-quality image sources suitable for their large screens. If the optimization process for high-quality images is inadequate, the picture can become blurry or grainy. DIGA‘s original i/p conversion and up-conversion functions solve this problem. These functions convert SD signals from DVD discs or DIGA‘s own hard disc drive into 1080p signals that provide high-resolution images. The conversion process boosts the amount of image information by about 5 times, so pictures are clear and beautiful.

Intelligent I/P Conversion

Intelligent I/P Conversion
DIGA uses Precision Pixel Generation technology in combination with three advanced functions - Pixel-Based Motion Adaptive, Diagonal Processing, and 2:2 Detection and Processing - to apply the type of i/p conversion that best suits the image. Precise Pixel Generation - Using a high-speed algorithm, this technology generates a new pixel for an image area from information obtained from 60 neighbouring pixels.

Super Multi Format

Super Multi Format
All DIGA DVD recorders offer the ease and convenience of Super Multi- Format Recording and Playback, which lets users play all of their DVDs, regardless of the recording format. DIGA models can record and play back DVD-RAM, DVD-R1 2, DVD-R DL1 2 3, DVD-RW1 3, +R, +R DL3, +RW discs. So you don't have to worry about whether your DIGA can play back everything in your current video library.

All i wanted was a simple DVD recorder with Freeview built in. This has every thing and more. It is only connected to an indoor aerial but the picture is outstanding.Recording a programme couldn't be any easier, highlight your choosen programme on the tv guide,press ok twice and everything is done. For the price i paid it is also excellent value aswell! Well done Panasonic.

Available in this all black or as silver/black, this is the third Panasonic DVD recorder I have owned. Disappointingly my Panasonic E55 DVD recorder has just packed up after recording a thousand or so DVDs over two years for the family, so I purchased this similar £140 model. Until it packed in, the E55 recorder was incredibly reliable at recording DVDs though. So I bought this Panasonic model as a replacement. This EZ28EB multi-format recorder works with DVD-RAM and DVD -/+ R/RWs and even dual layer [although these are still too expensive to be worthwhile using]. Only DVD-RAM offers full editing and the great time-slip/chase-play [sky+ type] feature - i.e. watch the recording from the beginning while the DVD is still recording the end of the program. The unit can't replay hi-def blue-ray or the now defunct HD format film DVDs. This DVD recorder can upscale standard DVD video to 1080 line HD TV but our TV is 4:3 PAL so we get no benefit. Likewise if you own a compatible Panasonic [HDAVI Control 3] TV, the TV remote can instant record and do other clever stuff via the VIERA link. Our TV is Sony and not VIERA compatible - although the DVD remote can still usefully control this TVs volume and channel number.

The player has a FreeView digital tuner built in, and we can record from a Sky box or another Digibox via the recorders AV1 and AV2 scart inputs as well [we use two nifty Vivanco SBX-94SE scart switching boxes]. The recorder Freeview can display the full FreeView program guide for all channels and the setup does a better job of ordering stations than my old Nokia FreeView box - however the FreeView program guide is nowhere as good as Skys. It does allow one-button auto-setup of the record timer for any selected program though.

This item is excellent! From unbelievably easy set up to recording accurately in less than 5 minutes!
Excellent interface, guide, intuitive control, superb picture performance and stylish slim design!
DVD RAM recording allows chase play (watch whilst still recording a programme, or watch one recording whilst recording another!
Sound too is excellent via optical digital out, and upscaled picture performance via HDMI is really very good indeed at this price point.
This machine replaces an ageing Panasonic DVD Recorder (DMR ES520 with Freeview but no HDMI or Upscaling), and it clearly is a vast improvement on that good machine in almost every area.
It serves as an extremely worthy extra digital recording option above Sky HD (my main system), and I can now record 3 digital programmes simultaneosuly! Will I ever get up off the sofa?
It responds much quicker too, so a faster processor is in evidence, which enhances and smooths the process of setting timers, playback etc.
DVD + or - recordings are easily 'finalised' for playback on other DVD's so no compatibility problems (other than with DVD RAM which is Panasonic specific and best used therefore for daily not to be archived recordings along with it's ease of use and facilities which are similar to Sky Plus)
Highly recommended! Panasonic deliver, and Amazon excel again in terms of price, delivery and customer service.
You simply can't go wrong with this machine, and this supplier!

I have only had this DVD Freeview Recorder for less than a week and I absolutely love it! We have a HUMAX (which has changed our lives for the better) but there are so many good films on over Christmas this year that we wanted to keep to play again (and not use up space on the hard drive); also our freeview receiver upstairs packed up so after researching a bit chose this fantastic machine. VHS is a real hassle now so wanted to get rid of my Video Player and have managed to copy my videos onto DVD which is a bonus. I bought some of those DVD ram disks, which are super BUT you cannot play on an ordinary DVD player. I am very pleased with my purchase and would thoroughly recommend.

I bought this to transfer my old videos onto DVD, and this has been very easy to do. Having done so I now find that this is a very easy and effective machine. Using DVD RAM's, picture quality at 4hr settings is very good (although perhaps not quite as good as my Humax PVR). For £125 though, I really can't fault it.
The only thing is that it doesn't have twin tuners, so anyone coming from a typical VCR needs to note that you won't be able to record one thing and watch another, if this is the only box you have. You will need a TV with built-in Freeview, or a separate box, or PVR etc. Not a problem for me, but another technophobe (like me) might get caught out...!

I've had this dvd recorder for 4 weeks now, and find it to be perfect, the freeview t.v. programmer is fast and so so easy to use, i.e. for recording. I had two phillips recorders befor and sent them back as they were rubbish, well done Panasonic for a first class recorder, I've also bought DVD RAM disc's they make a big difference as with these disc's the recorder uses all the available space on the disc, whereas on normal disc's i.e. dvd-/+rw's, only use the space thats left after your last recording, I highly recommend both the recorder and panasonics ram disc's.
