This must be good news for those not in range of Freeview UHF.

Wow it can record 2 HD channel at once. WOw technology from 2012~!!

 

My receiver from that era can record up to 4 channels per transponder, at the same time thats 8 recordings at the same time. Why is this new product so limited

Probably because they see more merit in the other technology (eg streaming rather that FTA)

I can see a market for this (I like my Panny terrestrial box), but not a big one.

 

Namely people who use Freeview, are on satellite because they can't get terrestrial coverage, and are non-techie so want a simple and reliable supported box from a well-known manufacturer. I have an elderly relative who fits that definition. Twin tuner, with recording, in a reliable and straightforward unit is perfect for them and all they need.

 

It's basically in the same market niche as the Dish twin-tuner units (with the addition of Netflix). But Panasonic is a better known brand, with a reputation for quality.

Yeah but a Twin Tuner doesn't need to be limited to only recording 2 channels at a time  the tech shouldnt limit you to recording a single channel inside the transport stream.

Looks good but it's Terrestrial only, not Satellite Tuners. The Sat one will likely be real competition for DISH TV if it's as reliable as their other products.
