    The remote control shown is the standard ES10 one. The one for the ES20D will be different with with 7 day EPG guide. The ES20D has the standard analogue tuner as well as digital freeview.

    The picture of the DVD recorder is the European version as well - I wouldn't worry about that too much - we will probably get the US handset that has an EPG button!

    Will this output the freeview signal over component or RGB and will the quality of recordings from freeview be any better than the ES10?
    Cheers

    Apparently so - although I have yet to see it for myself. I should be getting the unit to review in the next few weeks.

    What ?! Wasn't it supposed to record directly from the digital signal without loss or something ?

    Does this mean there will be a model with a hard disk coming out soon then ? If so, I'd be interested to see your views on this one Vs the Sony 1010.

    Yes. The Panasonic DMR-EH60D. Details are yet to be confirmed but it is due in September. As soon as I get a hands on I will do a comparative review with the Sony range - alot of people have been waiting for a HDD/DVDR/DVB combi.
