“Seems like a great idea being able to watch and record...”

Written on: 04/03/2007 by JGARBUTT (1 review written)

Seems like a great idea being able to watch and record two separate channels at the same time, but in practice the software lets it down. I find it hard to believe that Panasonic released this machine - especially with so many bugs in the software.

Many times it says there are new channels available... and yet doing a scan reveals none.... an hour later the same thing happens....

Very Very Frustrating when you get to the climax of some programme you have recorded and it stops because the… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/08/2006 by mjd314 (1 review written)

All the above problems persisted despite software updates. The Panasonic TUCTH100 was replaced three times by the dealer under warranty and once by Panasonic directly but the problems remained. Eventually I exercised my rights under the Sale of Goods Act and returned the machine to the supplying dealer as not being of satisfactory quality and asked for a full refund which they gave without quibble.
I have several other Panasonic products which have given excellent service and up to now I have… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/05/2006 by steele2000 (3 reviews written)

On paper the Panasonic TUCTH100 freeview box looks good. However, it was clearly designed by people who have no concept of usability! It is slow and difficult to use. The hard disk is constantly crashing, and you have to wait for the whole thing to "boot up".

I also have a Panasonic Freeview/DVD recorder which is slightly better. Of course they use entirely different menu systems, so just one more thing to get to grips with.

Panasonic used to produce well-designed equipment, but now I'm not… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/02/2006 by murphyma (1 review written)

On first using the Panasonic TUCTH100 Freeview Box I though it was great, recording two programs and watching a recorded program at the same time. The 7 day TV Guide seemed user friendly with the addition of being able to select a program for recording was very useful.

After a few weeks though I realised I shouldn't have purchased it and can't believe a company like Panasonic would release a product that had so many bugs. The TV Guide isn't so useful for selecting programs to record because… Read Full Review

“I bought the Panasonic TCCTH100 freeview box today,...”

Written on: 24/01/2006 by njp (1 review written)

I bought the Panasonic TCCTH100 freeview box today, and I am disappointed.

I do expect some clicking noise with any hard-drive, but this unit also has a high-pitched tone as well, which grates on the ears after a while.

It takes around 3 to 4 seconds to change channel (making a quick flick-through impossible).

The volume control on the remote does not work.

I shall be taking it back to the dealer tomorrow!… Read Full Review

“Channel changing on the Panasonic TUCTH100 Freeview...”

Written on: 01/12/2005 by Bobcatia (1 review written)

Channel changing on the Panasonic TUCTH100 Freeview box is very slow.
When switching on the unit I always get a message stating new channels available when they are not.
When recording, at least 50% of the channels have unlistenable sound.
On the whole a very niggly unit, and it is totally inconceivable that Panasonic has produced it!… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/11/2005 by Chipster (1 review written)

I wish I hadn'tbought a Panasonic TUCTH100 to be honest... very slow in operation despite the latest software upgrades and the sofware is very flakey - you would not want to rely on this box for key recordings. However that is not the worst of it! I've had mine about three months and in that time I have had to pull the plug on it (to re-set it) on average 3 times a week! |I feel this is unacceptabe for a top brand like Panasonic and I will be taking this back to my dealer (as it has now crashed… Read Full Review

Having seen some of the reviews, I was a little concerned about having just purchased the Panasonic TUCTH100 Freeview box, but the software seems stable, and the channel changing time is OK (but could be quicker).

I think this is a good piece of equipment!… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/05/2005 by slartibartfast (1 review written)

The Panasonic TUCTH100 takes a massive step back from previous Panasonic freeview products. Its software is appalling. A stunning machine in theory but in practice it is so annoying that it's almost worth buying to have the satisfaction of smashing to bits with a large sledgehammer… Read Full Review

I have one of these boxes and overall i am very pleased with its features and quite large hard disk. However, i would agree that it does try your patience!! Changing channels is sometimes teeth grittingly, i-want-to-hit-the-damn-thing-with-an-axe slow!! Aaaarggggh! Getting annoyed now!

Aspects's Response to slartibartfast's Review

Written on: 26/06/2005

Would agree with all the comments made. Changing channels is a slow tedious process, lock-ups are more & more frequent and cancelling pre programmed recordings does not work. Manual is a poor example of how to instruct user of the features. Have not found a freeview unit yet, with or without recorder, that is reliable and works as it states in spec.

Written on: 25/05/2005 by Aspects (2 reviews written)

I have found the Panasonic TUCTH100 to be more reliable than previous two Pace units. Good design features and informative front panel information. High quality picture. Manual needs to be read several times to get to grips with some of the features & procedures; could do with a rewrite. Most annoying problems are complete lock-ups requiring disconnection from mains to reset unit, refusal to stop recordings ahead of scheduled time and long (several seconds in some cases) delays between… Read Full Review

When the Panasonic TUCTH100 finally gets over its teething problems, it should be as good as it promised. But perhaps you should hold off until the new software is ready… Read Full Review
