    There are new Panasonic models out in Japan with dual tuners.

    Also the styling is a lot better than the current ugly looking ones.

    Can't remember the model no's. but if you search the net you'll find them.

    Worry not. It's a long time away yet.

    There is always ' a new one coming out', no matter when you look at the issue.

    We are only about halfway through the season.

    Hi Marty

    These machines are not destined for the UK market.

    The Japanese market is unlike the rest of the world and many devices that are released there never make it here. They have voice control among other things!

    Panasonic have made no announcements for a new range for Europe / UK at present.

    I quite like the design on my EX75. It's not as streamline and curvy as other models, but it's a unique design, and It doesn't detract from the other AV equipment I have.

    I prefer the rectangle look, the same as hifi gear.

    They may come into the UK next year, I'm currently trying to get more info one the new Sony 1065.

    i'm sure they will look as per the japanese models in line with their new UK BD player, which has the same styling, which i prefer to the slop nose current version, hense, waiting for the new models to come out.

    If you do a search in Google you will find that the Japanese market had Twin Tuner DVD Recorders when the DMR-E500H (RRP more than £1500, hardly anyone bought them) was out back in 2004 (same time as the DMR-E85H and DMR-E95H).

    As Gavtech said the Japanese market is totally different to the UK's.
