However, the main problem is that the specs page on Panasonic.com.au is a bit of a joke. It just says it has "Video in" and "S-Video in". If by that, they mean "Composite video in" for "Video in", then that necessarily means only SD (576i) quality on the inputs. I.e. no HD recording from external inputs. The product page doesn't even have an image of the rear connectors, so you can't even tell from that. Go to a shop, check whether it has only composite and S-Video in. If that's it, you can't record HD from your Foxtel box on it. Any HD from the Foxtel would have to be downscaled to SD to record from the analog inputs.
The only PVR/DVDR/BRayR that I know of that can record better than 576i is the Topfield 2400, which can do 576p. Which is better, but not all that great.
