Affirming its industry-leading position in recordable DVD products, Panasonic is introducing four new DIGA series DVD recorders, the DMR-EX87, DMR-EX77, DMR-EZ47V, and DMR-EZ27 - that offer 1080p image quality in both recording and playback, easy operation, and improved networking capabilities...

All four models come equipped with the HDMI terminal, which allows easy, single-cable connection to compatible equipment. They also offer Panasonic's proprietary VIERA Link functions for linked operation of other AV devices, and these functions are now even more convenient. Beginning with the 2007 model year, it is now possible to control a DIGA recorder, when connected to a Panasonic VIERA TV, using VIERA's remote control unit. This provides convenient control over frequently used functions by using only VIERA's remote. By pressing the VIERA Link button on the remote, a DIGA menu screen can be accessed directly from the VIERA Link menu screen, to make recording settings or play a DVD.

All four new models also offer improved image quality with 1080p technology. By combining intelligent i/p Conversion and 1080p Up-Conversion technologies, DIGA's 1080p technology renders high-resolution 1080p images from DVD movies and TV broadcasts. Also they are equipped with a new digital tuner that achieves stable signal reception even under poor signal conditions, such as when signals are reflected by surrounding buildings. The new tuner also prevents the generation of block noise. This optimises the high image and sound quality of digital broadcasts. A host of other attractive features also enhance the new DIGA models.

Amazing value and quality machine. HDMI , Component and even RGB outputs produce amazing colour and fine definition.

 Query for the experts

I got this for my mother for christmas and have only just set it up for her. The playback quality seems good and the unit is nice and sleek but the clock never shows on the front of the player, is this correct? When I go into set up the clock shows the correct time but never on the front of the player. Have I done something wrong or is the player defective...help.

 I like it!

Excellent machine, good picture quality and the menus are uncomplicated and pretty intuitive. Connected via HDMI to my 720p Toshiba LCD 37" and I'm impressed, although I'm not convinced that the "upscaling" makes much difference, picture appears a bit sharper but also a bit more grainy,

Oh for the previous reviewer, yes the clock shows on the front when it's in standby mode. There's a "power save" option in the menus, this may need to be set to "off" for the clock to display.

 Pretty good, but slow and faffy!

This is a really useful recorder with Freeview. You can tape what you want and delete what you don't (but delete unwanted stuff before you 'finalise'!).
Great way to record from Freeview.
The downsides - and I don't know if they all work this way - but it's really slow to turn on/warm up and the fact that you have to format the DVD's before you can record on them can be time consuming, so you have to plan ahead when you want to record anything as this can take a minute or two to do.
One last comment - don't forget to 'finalise' the full disc or it won't play on other DVD Players.
As long as you're organised enough to do these things in good time, it's a great recorder to have.
Nice quality copies and that will save you buying shop versions!
A bit of a faff, but once you're used to it it's great!
