By registering at new Panasonic Remote Recording Service, you can navigate and search on the EPG and set timer-recording of TV programme using smartphone or tablet from anywhere (internet environment required). Also, by using this service on smartphone or tablet while watching TV programme, you can set a different programme for timer-recording without interrupting the one you’re watching at home. *Requires broadband Internet service. App is available on the App Store. App is available on Google Play™.


Send a recorded programme or live broadcast to your Android Tablet or iPhone/ iPad/ iPod touch wirelessly, then watch the content wherever you like in your home. *App is available on the App Store. App is available on Google Play™. *Only remote recording function is available for the DMR-HWT230.


The EPG displays, Direct Navigator appears, and the tray opens quickly after pressing the button. This is the fastest DIGA operation ever.


The DMR-HWT230 is equipped with DLNA server/client functionality. By connecting to a LAN and using a compatible DLNA client device, recorded programmes and AVCHD and JPEG data archived on DIGAs HDD can be enjoyed in a separate room. In addition, FLAC, WMV, AVCHD, JPEG, and MP3 data can be played on DIGA from a personal computer with a DLNA server function.
