    Hi

    Have seen some shops selling the new Panasonic freeview recorder model number DMRES20 and others as DMRES20D are these the same or does the D at the end of some mean is a slightly different version.

    if anyone can help would be grateful, unbeatable has this at 249.00 but the model is without the D, so would i be better off getting the D model somewhere else

    thanks cath

    The ES20 is the European version and doesn't have the Freeview tuner. The ES20D is the UK specific version. That said many retailers are selling the ES20D as the "ES20". Your best bet is to telephone and check the model sports the DVB tuner!

    Got to say I never checked that when I ordered mine but did check that the product description stated Digital tuner and in most cases they also stated Freeview.
    I just tried to access the unbeatable site for the E20D and it is not listed now?

    I took the plunge and bought one from my local Panasonic dealer yesterday. I have to say, I am extremely pleased with it. I'm like a kid with a new toy. :thumbsup:

    "The ES20 is the European version and doesn't have the Freeview tuner. "

    What's the difference with the ES10 then ?

    Depending upon what country you are in the ES20 offers LPCM recording and Guideplus. I'm surprised iLink was left out of the spec - but I guess Panasonic know what they are doing!

    Ive just ordered the Panasonic DMRES20 from Richer sounds after doing some research on this form and getting info from the very helpfull members.
    I think ive made a good choice and for £306 i have a 3 year warrenty and a tip quality scart lead included plus dilivery.
    Now i just have to wait a few days until it arrives.
