DVD Recorder HDD 500GB Freeview


**With the flexibility to record Freeview TV onto DVD or its HDD hard drive, the Panasonic DMREX97 is a versatile recorder

Universal DVD recorder

Universal DVD recorder

The Panasonic DMREX97 is a flexible DVD recorder that not only plays back a huge variety of discs but also records on all the DVD formats. The recorder is compatible with both single and dual layer (DL) DVD-R and DVD+R formats. It will also record on the re-recordable DVD-RW and DVD+RW discs or even using the rare DVD-RAM system.

**HDD hard drive back-up**

Backing up the universal disc recording ability is the built-in 500GB hard drive. Using the extended recording EP mode, this allows for up to 860 hours of recording - enough to cover months away from home! Even using the highest quality HG mode, the Panasonic manages an impressive 78 hours of recording.

**Twin tuners for ultimate versatility**

Twin tuners give the Panasonic DMR-EX97 fantastic versatility. With both tuners compatible with Freeview, you can record two HD programmes simultaneously. This means there's no need to worry about two programmes overlapping. Alternatively, you can watch one programme whilst recording another - even if you're watching on a monitor or projector without its own built-in TV tuner.

**TV Series Recording function**

Use the TV Series Recording function to automatically record a TV series each time it's broadcast. This takes the hassle out of recording individual episodes and, unlike catch-up TV sites, you can watch the programme again at any time and not just within 30 days.

**Quick, easy operation**

Panasonic has focused on the user experience of DVDRs to make the DMR-EX97 a far more pleasant recorder to use. With 'Triple 1-Sec Easy Operation', the disc tray, Electronic Programme Guide and Video Menu all operate within an instant.

Whether it's to archive your recording collection or just to record day-to-day TV, the Panasonic DMREX97 delivers the highest quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Martin1955 from Myerror soon rectified by Richer Purchased as a Panasonic DVD /VHS recorder player had finally given up the ghost - its tuners had cried "enough"! I already had a DMREX97 HDD/ DVD Recorder/player for some time and knew it was a reliable unit so opted for one of theseshock horror! when i checked the order, i discovered i'd ordered the wrong one!! i'd ordered a HDD recorder with DVD PLAYER included a quick phone to their customer service dept quoting the original order number they soon corrected myerror within minutes of my call - i received an email confirming the correct unit and the overcharge of £20 would be returned to my card Another example of going that extra mile and above and beyond Thank you folks The unit was received very quickly, and soon plumbed in and workingone v happy bunny!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 63jamil from good recording abilities This recorder is excellent for me as this is the second one I have purchased so I knew what I was buying and installed it in my new cabin in the garden. The original one is 5 years old and still works well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JosieJo from This recorder is a disappointment I purchased this recorder in February 2020 to replace my old Panasonic which had been very reliable for years up until early 2020. It was easy to set up but I began to experience a problem when the machine wouldn't switch on with the remote. I had to switch it off then on manually for it to work. The picture quality is excellent but the sound quality is poor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from A very compact and versatile unit. My existing Panasonic recorder (DMR-EX99V) has finally given up the ability to transfer videos from hard drive to DVD. I was aware of the DMD-EX97's ability to carry out this function, which is becoming increasingly rare on other machines and makers. I tried without success to locate one from other major retailers and was told that they are no longer in production. In desperation I contacted Richer Sounds direct by phone and was put in touch with Rehan. He was very efficient, professional and patient and check the main store area very quickly and came back with the good news that three were available. He processed my order over the phone and completed the transaction very quickly. The recorder arrived very quickly and I was able to check out all functions very quickly. A really compact and quiet recorder that read and played all my previous recordings perfectly. An example of excellent service from Richer Sounds providing me with a superb recorder/player.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bill 42 from My 4th Richersounds/Panasonic DVD reorder/player All previous machines have been trouble free & very reliable & still work - I keep them as back up & additional capacity. Once set up easy to use.
