    Not so long ago someone posted the new Panny DVDR lineup that included the ES10 that is now released. In that post they stated there would be a Freeview DVDR from Panasonic soon as part of the new Diga lineup? Is this still the case and if so when will it be released? I have tried to find that original posting but cannot :confused:

    Thanks in advance.

    The general consensus is that the top of the range Panasonic E500 replacement (due November) will have a DVB tuner - however they are keeping it all under wraps at present so nobody knows for sure. Panasonic have, on several occasions, demonstrated a DVB equipped HDD/DVDR recorder but whether we will see if this year remains to be seen. Let's hope so.

    Considering their inept attempt to produce a Freeview pvr, will a Freeview dvd from Panasonic be worth waiting for? :rolleyes:

    I thought there was a 160Gb HD DVDR with freeview tuner due in September.

    Can't prove it though......just idle gossip I am afraid.

    Thanks for the replies .
    I would prefer an entry level DVDR with Freeview.
    The Sony Gxxxwej!!!500 is one such recorder but I would prefer the DVD-RAM format myself due to current Panny E30 giving me all I need (apart from Freeview).
