I think the only slight niggle I can find with my Panasonic DMR E30 is the remote control. Does anyone eles find this remote very directional? I sit approx seven feet or eight feet from the E30 which sits on the glass shelf under the Panasonic PL1. I used to think the PL1 was somewhat directional, but the E30 is a real pain. The E30 is not behind any glass doors etc. and has clear line of sight to the remote.
