    Hello,
    Have just bought very cheap 2008 dmr xw300 PVR , for recording extra stations, at the same time I am recording other stations on my Homecast 8200.
    They both have mpeg2 decoding, the Homecast tuned in and displays HD, but Panasonic only shows SD! It has the last firmware update v1.7 from 2008.Can anyone please help.

    Welcome to the forum.

    I don't know what your local broadcasting arrangements are in Australia, but the XW300 handles HD in MPEG4 encoding only.

    Thanks Gavtech,
    They now broadcast in MPEG 4, used to be MPEG 2 as far as I know.
