Incidentally, Panodic has
opted to split up the overall
channel list into TV and radio
sections, which additionally
enhances the overall user ex-

since each function can be
called up with a single touch of

language for audio, subtitles or
teletext, as well as duration of

time manually or you can fall
back on the time signal trans-
mitted with the DVB standard.

receiver the HDT-275C comes
with a total of eight timer slots
which can be set individually.

weekly or monthly recording,
