The box kept locking up many time and I had to unplug and leave it switched off and then plug it back in again. This was expensive. I should have gone with a cheaper model. I will not make the same mistake again with Panasonic. In my opinion, this has been a waste of money (read more)

I think this freeview box is seriously overpriced when new at £75 - you can buy 3 newer receivers for that now and they are probably hundreds of times better.
Best place for it now is the bin. (read more)

The Panasonic TUCT20 is a very expensive box. I paid nearly £100 from a discount store. My first box, I didn't know what to expect. I'm disappointed with freeview in general compared to analogue, the cheaper Tesco box in the kitchen doesn't lock up so much, though the remote is more sluggish. I think the Panasonic price warrants a better engineered product! (read more)

Panasonic are are top brand name, but the Panasonic TUCT20 Freeview box is a true disaster. It fails on almost every front. I cannot believe that you can still buy this from Comet for £70! (read more)

The Panasonic TUCT20 is a really bad product. For two years I put up with the picture freezing every few minutes and lip-sync problems that made it feel as if I was watching one programme whilst listening to another! Add to this the occasional need to power it off and on again when it locked up completely, made it a very annoying piece of kit. I live in a good reception area, have a good aerial for digital TV reception plus a signal booster.
I finally went out and purchased a Sagem 602 from... (read more)

Have had a Panasonic TUCT20 for a couple of years and have suffered poor picture quality. Eventually called in an aerial specialist - he immediately replaced it with a Bush and bingo! - No problem with the aerial. (read more)

Not being a big sports fan and therefore a prime candidate for the great satellite TV rip-off, Freeview sounded just fine for me. Have always trusted the Panasonic brand, but frankly, what a disappointment. I am now on my second of these units - the first went back as it wouldn't work at all! This one just about works, but suffers from a number of problems and I'm currently trying to get this sorted out too.
Firstly it has a tendency to not latch onto the strongest available signal for... (read more)

I have two of these boxes and having seen just about all the Freeview boxes the Panasonic TUCT20 of the two best (with Philips DTR1500). Small and compact with a separate power supply means the box runs cool for a long life (my boxes are from Oct 2002 and Jan 2003 respectively).There have been 4 software downloads since I got my first box which has kept the boxes up to date with changes to Freeview and the MHeg text. The latest is v1.14(a).The original remote was small & very neat, there is... (read more)

This Panasonic TUCT20 is a poor box and Panasonic will not be doing any more software updates to fix the problems.
The box can freeze when tuned into a channel that doesn't have a high signal strength, requiring the box to be powered down to fix it. Also the audio and video can become out of sync which is really annoying when you've recorded an entire programme where the audio is a second ahead of the video. This box will never be able to use the 7 day EPG when it eventually comes out. Also... (read more)

The Panasonic TUCT20 has the most horrible on screen graphics ever. BEWARE: Do not buy this box as Panasonic will not be doing anymore Software updates to this box as they are now focusing on the 30 version. So this means the box will NOT include a 7 day EPG which most of the other companys are make stand now! (read more)

I bought this Panasonic TUCT20 because it was 20% off from argos, i previously had the goodmans which kept glitching alot, this is much better with far fewer glitches and picture quality is great. It looks really good and from a great make, also cheap for what it is. (read more)

The Panasonic TUCT20 set top box took the usual 10 mins to set up.
Original analogue reception was poor, but digital signal strength is fine.
Good quality item that "does exactly what it says on the box"! (read more)
