About the Panasonic DMR-BS780 Freesat+ HD Blu-Ray 250GB Digital Box

Blu-ray Disc™ Recorder with Twin HD Satellite Tuner compatible with Freesat+ and 250GB HDD

DIGA’s H.264 encoder compresses the recorded programmes at a lower bitrates but retain its high-definition resolution. The images are crisp and clear due to advanced compression technologies that are optimized to match each scene. PHL Reference Chroma Processor Plus is a high quality image processing technology developed to precisely process each pixel of the Blu-ray Disc™ video signal. It reproduces colour data with twice the accuracy of conventional systems to keep colours faithful and sharp.

With more than 140 digital TV and radio channels to choose from it’s fairly likely that at some point you will want to record two programmes broadcast at the same time. The freesat+ Twin Tuner allows you the freedom to do this and offers a multitude of other viewing and recording options.

The 35-hour long time archiving in HM mode is also convenient for saving hard disk space. In HM mode, a maximum of 35 hours of high definition recording data can be save onto BD-RE DL/BD-R DL (50GB).

DIGA becomes more convenient with addition of Rewind Live TV. On top of Pause Live TV which let you pause live TV programmes as if you are watching recorded programmes, Rewind Live TV will allow you to rewind live TV to the scene which you want to, upto 2 hours, so you won’t miss important moments. *Rewind Live TV will be effective while channel stays the same. *The function of Rewind Live TV does not work during simultaneous recording. *For Pause Live TV, when 8 hours pass since the programme was recorded, the recording stops.

Using DLNA® technology, Panasonic Blu-ray Disc™ players and home cinema systems can access files on the DLNA Server Blu-ray Disc™ Recorder DMR-BS780 or compliant PC*. By simply connecting to Home Network (LAN), you can enjoy AVCHD, JPEG files and recorded programmes on your DIGA or AVCHD, WMV, and JPEG on your PC*. *Requires Windows 7 Operating System.

  2. On paper and when it works I love this box. However everytime I turn it on I find myself praying for it to communicate to my Philips TV. Call it Viera link or Easy link, neither work very effectively with each other, drives me mad!
    Apart from that, great item.
