FULL HD 3D Blu-ray Disc Playback

Blu-ray 3D discs store Full HD for the left eye and Full HD for the right eye and deliver them alternately to the screen in rapid sequential frames. This means all the stunning resolution and depth of 3D can be enjoyed at the highest quality.

Freeview Plus - Record, Pause & Rewind Live TV

Freeview+ functionality, providing some very smart features to look after your TV recordings:

  • Twin Digital Tuner - ensures that when two programmes clash it never becomes an issue.
  • Pause and Rewind Live TV - gives you the chance to review and replay a part of live action, or pause the action while you deal with an interruption.
  • Series Record - notifies you when the programme you want to record is part of a series and sets the rest of the series to record automatically.
  • Accurate Recording via Guide Link - if a programme offers "Guide Link" it means that even if the start or end time changes, the recording time will be changed automatically to match the new time.
  • Split Event Recording - even if the programme you set to record is interrupted by and continues after the news, no problem, both parts of the programme will still be recorded.
  • Overlap Recording Resolve - even with two tuners, sometimes there may be a third programme that you simply can't miss. Don't worry, if there's a conflict, Panasonic Freeview+ recorders scan the programme listings to find a different time when that programme is repeated and sets the recorder accordingly.

This top-of-the-range machine is festooned with capabilities which some may find a bit daunting.

Nevertheless, I can wholeheartedly recommend this unit because it's basic performance is exceptionally good, never mind the party tricks. It has twin tuners which allow simultaneous recording from one channel while watching another. I have a weak aerial signal but the quality of signal on this machine is higher than I was originally getting with the aerial plugged directly into the TV (also a Panasonic) so image quality is very good. The recorded image is just as good as the original.

The Electronic Programme Guide is intuitive and is easy to use. This model and the previous DMR 720 generation have a smallish font with coloured graphics which require quite good eye-sight to programme from a distance on my system, compared with earlier Panasonics where the EPG was more easy to read, but not as pretty. In fact the DMR 735 is very much an evolution of the DMR 720, which I also use. In addition to a huge 1TB of storage on the hard drive the DMR 735 is about the only machine currently on the market that allows for archiving from the hard drive to DVD, something that was commonplace over 5 year ago but not any more. So as I like to keep copies of some material I've recorded off the TV this recorder rather selects itself.

On the party tricks:

1. Remote recording of programmes using an Android (or IOS) App allows programmes to be recorded when away from home. The App itself is a bit flakey and tends to crash.
2. Viewing of TV or recorded material on a compatible tablet device wirelessly - handy if you want to watch TV in the garden or bathroom.

Firstly, I'm not out to write a review longer than Brian Lee's, and before you read this I do urge you to read his review as he covers most things about this machine, and as others have said his review is like the manual should have been.
Anyway assuming you've read it but still haven't decided to buy this first rate machine then lets hope I can convince you.....

Most of my review will be about the recording capabilities as this is what I got these machines for.

I can't, and won't, comment on things I've not tried as obviously it wouldn't be accurate and will give a misleading perception of this box. One thing I won't be commenting on is the app for remote recording as I seem to be part of the 0.0001% of the global population that doesn't have a smart phone.

Well like Brian Lee I have more than one HDD/DVD recorder and like Brian I always use all of them, but unlike Brian who has
obviously and sensibly gradually changed his machines bit by bit over the years I decided to go the expensive route and replace all of my 3 at once! The original machines were only ever a stop gap, were refurbished and only designed to last 12 -18 Months or so before being replaced by more modern kit. So right on time and only 8 years later I finally get round to it. As the price had dropped to £310 I couldn't resist the chance of having 3 of these machines, although I was slightly worried as some customers have ordered these and obviously had been sent previously returned kit I thought these might be too as the price had dropped so much. I needn't have worried though as all came in the original Panasonic boxes.

Just got my new Panasonic BWT735 today - 24th May.

Wow - that was fast - it was only supposed to arrive on 10th June!
Well done Amazon - as usual!

First impressions - unlike my BW780, BWT700 and BWT720 and all my other AV kit - it's not black - it's silver!

Now I'm not actually a fan of silver kit - I prefer black, however as it is to be placed underneath an existing (black) BWT720 it's not a problem as the opening front is tinted black. I know I'm nit-picking already but some people may like to know these things.

Another apparent problem on first switch-on was that it couldn't seem to update the programme guide programme name and descriptions after running through the tuning process. I may have confused it by running the tuning update twice, having noticed that it was getting poor signal quality values (4-6 instead of 9-10) being listed on the first run through and powered it off mid-process. The poor quality values were caused by an aerial lead problem which was soon fixed - but I may have then upset it by forcing a second tuning update manually. Then I noticed that the clock was not displaying any time so I checked the clock option (Function Menu - Others - Setup - Others - Clock). This was set to Off (why?) so I set it to On. Bingo - all the programme titles and descriptions immediately appeared! Fair enough - if it doesn't know what time and date it is it can't really decide what programmes are on - the odd thing is why was the clock set to off in the first place? I will put that down to my powering it off during the startup procedure - never had that problem with any of the previous boxes ...

Readers keen to know about the main improvement over previous models - the remote recording app - will be glad to hear it basically works.
