Looking at the Panasonic website and they now list a MyFreeview HDD with 3D Bluray player and 500GB storage. Model DMR-BTW700GZ.
Is this the replacement for the DMR-BW880GZK?
From the description it looks like 60 second forward ad skipping has been enabled... it's in the features list. http://www.panasonic.co.nz/at-home/entertainment/blu-ray-products/blu-ray-players-recorders/dmr-bwt700gz.html
Could this be the best one yet?
