    Hi

    I've just ordered a panasonic e95 and was wondering what can be done with the pc slot on the front. Is it a full pcmcia slot that will take most cards.
    i.e can I fit a network adaptor card and network the machine or does it only read recorded media.

    There isn't any point. Even if there was the correct connectivity for a network card, there would be no way of setting it up. It's a DVD/HDD recorder, not a PC.

    Hi Again

    The reason I was asking is because I also have a dreambox satellite reciever with a network connection.
    I can access the hardrive from my computer, copy data across to the computer, delete data and various other things.
    I was hopeing mayb'e I could do something similar.

    Unfortunately not as it is purely ATA compatible for reading flash cards or PCMCIA hard drives. A network car will fit, but there is no option to utilise it on the recorder.
    The E95 can record MPEG2 video from a PC via DV (Firewire/IEEE1394), but only the DMR-E500 has networking facilities, which is via an RJ45 Ethernet connection.

    Hi Again

    i was thinking of the e500 but nobody could say definitely what connectivity I would get from the network connector. Also £400+ more was a lot to pay so I plumped for the e95.
    I've just ordered a LG dvd writer for my computer so if I want anything transferring I'll do it via dvd ram for the time being, unless the dv connector is both way.

    Thanks

    You'll have to use the disc transferring method then as the E95 is purely DV-in.

    My understanding of E500 offers full streaming capabilities over ethernet
    connection, ie, should appear as remote connection PC with its own IP address

    The video streaming to PC is only for MPEG4. The only access to MPEG2 is to rename the titles on a PC or stream them to another Ethernet enabled AV product (currently only another DMR-E500).
