  • HDD Recording

For media mavens who want to play, record, and archive their music, photos, and videos across a variety of storage formats, the Panasonic DMR-EH59GA-K Multi-Zone 250GB HDD/DVD Recorder offers a dizzying array of choices that will satisfy the most demanding requirements. We've imported this European version specifically so you can enjoy more options than you'll usually find on North American models.

The multi-system device includes a 250GB hard disk drive, a DVD recorder that works with single- or dual-layer discs, and a USB port. Content can be recorded from one format to another, depending on file type and size. The DMR-EH59GA-K has a PAL tuner, and can also record SECAM programming. This model also plays NTSC region 1 (USA) discs via HDMI or A/V inputs but cannot receive over-the-air US TV signals.

If you've got video or audio devices that you'd like to hook up to the DMR-EH59GA-K for additional recording options, you're in luck. The Panasonic recorder includes an assortment of inputs that will meet your needs. For playback, the DMR-EH59GA-K provides digital and analog outputs including HDMI, optical, component, and composite jacks.

The DMR-EH59GA-K is also chock full of features that once you try, you won't be able to do without. For example, if the machine should run out of room when recording a TV program to DVD, it records the overflow onto HDD. During recording, the Auto Scene Chapter function inserts chapter marks between scenes for easy review. And when playing a CD or recording it to HDD, the DMR-EH59GA-K taps into the embedded Gracenote Database to supply information about the music and the artist.

Almost needless to say, the Panasonic DMR-EH59GA-K is a superb DVD/CD player. The unit includes 1080p upconversion, Dolby Digital, and Linear PCM for brilliant video and audio. The recorder also offers high-speed data archiving, Viera Link compatibility for convenient control of compatible HDTVs, and a simplified graphical user interface for easy function selection, among its other attributes.

If you do a lot of recording and need to work with multiple content formats and storage media, the Panasonic DMR-EH59GA-K Multi-Zone 250GB HDD/DVD Recorder is your audio-visual dream machine.

Note: This unit may require a multi-system TV or system converter to view PAL DVDs in the US. This item is imported and it is not supported by a MFR warranty. To support this product B&H Photo provides a 90-day warranty.

It comes with both a European plug and a US plug adapter.

Hard Disk Drive Recording
The versatile DMR-EH59GA-K lets you record TV programs on the hard disk drive (HDD), as well as copy music, movies, and photos to it. Recording time using the HDD ranges from 55 hours in XP Mode to 441 hours in EP Mode.

DVD Recording
You also have the ability to record on DVD discs at several quality settings. Recording time using 4.7GB single-sided discs ranges from 1 hour in XP Mode to 8 hours in EP Mode. For 8.5GB dual-layer discs, recording time ranges from 1 hour 45 minutes in XP Mode to 14 hours 20 minutes in EP Mode. (Recording to dual layer discs is only available from the hard drive).

1080p Upconversion with HDMI
By interpolating video data using proprietary algorithms, SD format data is up-converted to 1080 x 1920p HD format video data. This conversion to HD format increases the richness of the original data by approximately six fold, and produces the highest possible image quality when viewing content on a large-screen HDTV.

USB Port
The convenient USB port lets you connect devices such as flash drives and digital cameras to the DMR-EH59GA-K to play music, view photos, and watch videos.

Viera Link Compatibility
Have too many remote controls to keep track of? The unit's Viera Link HDAVI Control is a convenient function that offers linked operations of this unit and a Panasonic Viera TV or receiver under HDAVI Control. You can use this function by connecting the equipment with an HDMI cable.

Music Jukebox with Gracenote Database
You can use the DMR-EH59GA-K as a versatile music jukebox in conjunction with the Gracenote Database, which is used to search and retrieve CD title information. When a CD is inserted or recording from a CD begins, the unit will automatically search for and obtain information about the inserted CD. The Gracenote Database comes pre-installed on this unit, so titles and artist information can be obtained.

384 Kbps Audio Recording in SP Mode
In the SP recording mode, 384 Kbps high sound quality recording provides audio quality approaching that of commercially available movie software. Even with music containing a wide range of tones, such as orchestral performances, the sound of individual instruments is faithfully reproduced.

HDD Damper & Fan Control Technology
The Panasonic DMR-EH59GA-K recorder incorporates technology that ensures quiet operation. Locating the HDD damper closer to the hard disk drive than in conventional hard disk drive mounting configurations effectively improves absorption of hard disk drive vibrations. Similarly, the unit features an advanced control system that automatically adjusts fan speed based on information received from an internal heat sensor. When the recorder's internal temperature rises, the fan turns on to prevent overheating. Conversely, when the temperature is low, the fan shuts off entirely, providing whisper-quiet operation.

Improved Graphical User Interface (GUI)
With the Panasonic's streamlined and easy-to-navigate GUI, it's a snap to find and choose the settings that you want. Choices are clearly indicated and confirmed at the touch of a button.

Auto Scene Chapter Function
When recording a TV program, this function determines where new scenes begin (by "listening" to the voices in the program) and automatically inserts chapter marks at those places. This makes it easy to skip over scenes and start playback from a particular point.

JPEG Slideshow with Music
Turn your digital photos into a fun slideshow by recording musical accompaniment and playing it all back on the DMR-EH59GA-K. Your friends and family will enjoy the added touch of sound for your memories.

Multi-Format Playback
With the DMR-EH59GA-K, you have a wide variety of file formats that you can play. The DVD recorder can handle virtually all DVD/CD disc formats, while the built-in USB port can play files recorded in the MP3, DivX, JPEG, and WMA formats.

High Speed Data Archiving
The DMR-EH59GA-K recorder enables you to quickly archive MPEG2, JPEG, MP3, and WMA files from USB to HDD. You need only choose source and destination and the unit simplifies the process to back up your music and photos.

Environment-Friendly
With environmentally aware power-saving features such as Intelligent Auto Standby and Standby Power Save, the Panasonic DMR-EH59GA-K Multi-Zone DVD Recorder can truly be considered a green machine.

We've imported this European version to offer you options that are not commonly available in models aimed at the North American market.

      An NTSC Hard-Drive DVD Recorder for USA!

      Back in 2005 I bought my first USA Hard-Drive DVD recorder to replace an expensive VHS recorder. I love the Panasonic DMR-EH50 unit and use it daily on a 56-inch wide screen TV. You know if it had legs, I'd take it out for Dinner and a Movie!Hard-Drive DVD Recorders are best used for archiving video to the hard drive, then edit and burn to DVD-R. You can Compile home video's whole or in segments, select the view order, and burn. Tape a TV show, if you like it, edit out the commercials and burn. That simple! To me there is no better video recording system for the money, Plus Panasonic's DMR software, build, and picture quality are exceptional!Still, I have lived in fear of my DMR-EH50 breaking down one day (still hasn't). So 3 years ago I started looking for another only to find Panansonic had stopped making them for the USA market. Further searches for a replacement found exact or simular used units under auction and commanding between Five to Eight Hundred each! I mean seriously folks, who wants to pay that much for a "Used" unit? Besides,you don't know how much use it got or how well it was cared for? I had also found new Panasonic Hard-Drive DVD Recorders made for Europe but availible for sale in the USA. These units would play and record NTSC, however the original 240v Euro power supply was replaced by the retailer to 120v, which left me squeemish to finalise the purchase. The alternatives were a USA Phillips, and a Canada Pioneer unit (both of which I bought). Overall they proved cumbersome to operate, and quality - software problematic. Neither offered the ease, durability, and features of the Panasonic DMR model's.I came across this New Panasonic DMR-EH59 a few months back, got excited, and bought one from B & H! In many ways the core functions of the Euro DMR-EH59 unit are the same as my 2005 USA DMR-EH50. The 4 recording speeds plus flex, High Speed Copy or Burn, Title Disc, set Thumbnail pictures, "Phrase Save", plus 9 different wallpapers for the top menu. All of these features are essential to me. This New Panasonic DMR-EH59 unit comes with a dual voltage sensor from the factory, plug it in and your good to go. It has a large 250 Gig Hard Drive which offers plenty of storage. The High speed burn for a single 4 hour DVD-R takes 9 minutes to complete. It also provides USB, HDMI, and RCA conections as well as Composite Output. The Front Panel Display is smaller than previous, but very bright. My unit came set to NTSC video record and playback mode. Additionally the DMR-EH59 can copy / burn music cd's and pictures! There are a few adjustments to owning this built for Europe unit. Most importainly it DOES NOT HAVE A NTSC or DIGITAL TUNER. That means if you live in the USA and do not have a Cable Receiver Box, Satelite Receiver Box, or Digital Receiver Box with outputs, this unit is NOT For You PERIOD! For example, I have my dish DVR Tuner patched to the phono-in jacks for right now. There is NO TV Guide Programing capability (TVGO) on this unit. The cable hookups on this unit are Slide-On, and not threaded mounts as typical in the USA. The new Remote Control is lighter. In comparison to my original DMR-EH50 remote, they removed the Direct Access Buttons for DVD, HDD, SD, Dubbing, Setup, and erase. The biggest adjustment for me is reading the Date / Clock settings. While USA units have an 24 hour AM / PM clock, the Euro units are 0-24 hours like in the Military. Additionally instead Date Stamping the Hard-Drive recordings in the "Month-Day-Year" order, Euro units have "Day-Month" settings. Still with these differences, I bought a 2nd DMR-EH59 unit from B & H! [...]Overall I am very happy with the Panasonic DMR-EH59, and feel it's well worth the price when considering the alternatives. The DMR-EH59 (250 gig) or DMR-EH69 (340 Gig) units are your best choice Hard-Drive DVD Recorders until Panasonic International decides to bring it back to a desperate USA market!

      I bought this product at my mom's request. We have been having trouble finding a dvr with a disc burner and she was very excited to find the Panasonic recorder. We were a bit confused when we found that we cannot play DVD's. You can play a recorded disc but not a movie and we still can't figure out any explanation. We tried to change the zones under the menu and were unable to. When we called the help line we were told there was nothing we could do to play a movie, apparently having something to do with the fact that our machine is made for overseas use. Why has nobody mentioned that in the reviews? Luckily the machine does seem to record from live TV and we are hopeful that we can burn VHS tapes to CD's which is what my mom wanted from the player. I just think for the amount of money perhaps the description might give you a clue that you can't play a store bought movie on it. Also the instruction manual is not very instructional. Be prepared to figure out alot on your own. This is a decent product but honestly my Magnavox (that is no longer made anymore) was the better purchase.

            Comments about Panasonic DMR-EH59GA-K Multi-Zone 250GB HDD/DVD Recorder:

            I am using this to archive my VHS tapes to DVD. First-this works with US voltage without a hitch if you use the included wall adapter plug. Second it does NOT convert PAL to NTSC but plays all regions and both PAL & NTSC. BTW, if you have a Vizio LED TV you can play back PAL without an external converter. The most useful part of the machine is the Hard Disk recording in FR (flexible recording mode), which one can then copy to a DVD. It has rudimentary editing capabilities and so you get rather generic menus (unlike if you do the job with a computer, but this is quicker). It would have been nice if it had some more menu selections & can record directly to DL media (instead of HDD first then copy). Overall, I am very satisfied with the machine and if you are in the market for a solid DVD recorder to archive your VHS tapes, this one fits the bill perfectly. With B & H backing it with their superb service, you have the cake & can eat it too!

            I hate the idea of paying subcription fees to record a TV show and I was tired of the limited capacity of my DVD recorder. This thing does the job. Lots of recording time and similar to my Panasonic DVD recorder to use. Yes the 'rest of the world" black level makes the image look a little washed out at normal American TV settings. My Panasonic plasma has picture settings that are input dependent so it was a simple matter to adjust brightness and contrast to get a very good picture.

                I use this recorder for event vidography and storage of documents and videos. Works well--reliable with many functions envolving transfer from TV to DVD or DVD to HDD or HDD to DVD. The one thing that reallydisappointed me was Panasonics total disregard to UScustomers--not mentioned in any of the Multi-Zones--only European, Asian, New Zealand, and Saudi Arabia.At first I thought I ordered the wrong DVD recorder, but was happy to find the 110V connections--which works just fine. Overall I really like the machine!

                  Comments about Panasonic DMR-EH59GA-K Multi-Zone 250GB HDD/DVD Recorder:

                  Physically, the unit is solid, and came with a European (female) to U.S. (male) adapters, and two European power cables (I was only expecting one). Power cable goes into the unit, into the supplied adapter, and into a standard U.S. outlet - no problems.

                  Technically, I've hooked the unit up to my television via HDMI output, and I've hooked my SVHS deck up to the recorder via RCA audio and S-Video video cable.

                  I started transcribing video from SVHS to the unit's hard drive without any issues; simply use the menus to select the record mode (I use SP, which is probably excessive), select the AV input (AV4, in my case) on the unit, and press "Record". When the tape's done, press "Stop".

                  There's a menu setting to create DVD "Chapters" every 5 mninutes; for basic media conversion, that works very well (and without any care or effort).

                  I then use the advanced copy mode in the unit to go from the HDD to a DVD-R. So far, both standard "SP" mode and the "flexible" "FR" mode have worked well; I put 3 hours of video on a single 4.7GB DVD-R, and it plays back with very good quality, given it came from a fifteen year old standard VHS tape. Watching the resulting DVD on a 55" television, there is a little bit of sharpening artifacts, i.e. edges are a bit "crunchy". Given that the original 250 lines of resolution was recorded in an era when a 27" TV was considered large, and it's being replayed with 1080 lines of resolution on a TV with four times the area, it seems reasonable. Subtitles from the original VHS are crisp and readable (again, slightly crunchy edges).

                  The audio after transfer from VHS to HDD to DVD is excellent!

                  One very surprising note is that this unit started playing my commercial Region 1 DVD copy of Marvel's Avengers without any problems - I put it in just to see, and it played immediately!

                  Warning: So far, it looks like DVD-R with a dash, not a plus, is critical. I tried Verbatim DVD+RW's, no luck. Verbatim DVD+R's, no luck. Verbatim DVD-R's, perfect recordings.

                      We use this dvd recorder to make dvd copies for our customers from our various video tapes. It is much easier than doing it on a pc if you don't have to do a bunch of edits.
                      NTSC Dvd recorders with hdd are hard to come by nowadays and this thing works perfectly for us.
                      One of our other panasonic dvd recorders just gave up after ca. 10 years of service and thousands of programs burned.

                        I was looking for a new dvd recorder w/hard drive, because my Panasonic dmr e85h finally stopped working. It's been very difficult to find a unit like this anywhere a lot of the brick and mortar places don't sell these anymore and haven't for sometime. I use this unit for my home theater it up converts dvds to 1080p I use the hard drive for recording off the cable box and it does it well a nice feature I discovered was that is can pause live tv awesome if you are looking to replace your dvd recorder or looking for one the I recommend to you to purchase this

                          We use this mainly to record our church services from the input of our Panasonic AG HPX170. They work flawlessly together. This recorder allows us to produce same day DVDs of our recordings in less than 5 minutes. It is amazing and produces quality output. So far this has been one of our best media purchases to date.

                                I have had several Panasonic DVD recorders in the past and have had no problems. When my present recorder malfunctioned , I found Panasonic has ceased marketing these sets in the U.S. for some unknown reason. But I found this set at B & H which apparently is marketed in Europe and ordered it. When it arrived I attempted to connect it to my cable box and TV, but discovered it did not come with appropriate connecting cables. After fruitlessly looking for such cables at Radio Shack and other local suppliers, I called B & H to see what help they could give. Although they attempted to find a solution to the problem, they were unable to do so. The alternative was to return the item and absorb the return shipping cost. The warning about power incompatability was not an issue since the set came equiped for 110 volts and if not, a power transformer could have been used.

                                    The hard disc recording capability is awesome. U can watch programs recorded on hard disk, burn it on to a DVD disc if the program is worth the archive space or delete it after watching. I wish Panasonic would make a US version of this device so I can connect it directly to my cable box using hdmi cable instead of the auxiliary cables.

                                      The DMR-EH59GA-K recorder is easy to adapt for use in the USA. With this unit I can record on Dual Layer DVDs, and by using a DVD-R DL I can copy wide-screen. If you are recording to a DVD, and the disk runs out of space the Hard Drive kicks in and you save it all. Do not be afraid to mix Euro and USA, the detailed booklet is well written and easy to understand. I can't find a negative in this recorder. This recorder will add a lot of flexability to your recording, far beyond any other unit you will find in the USA. Bravo B&H for making this recorder easily available to US costomers.

                                      Comments about Panasonic DMR-EH59GA-K Multi-Zone 250GB HDD/DVD Recorder:

                                      I am quite enthusiastic about the dvd recorders with hdd (hard disk drive), starting in 2003 with the E100H that I used to edit and convert to dvd rolls of camcorder video tape. I got two later models, each with added features.

                                      I bought my first EH59 used, excellent price, and ended up giving that to my son. Bought a second EH59 that I am keeping. This one is the third EH59 that I have bought, this time for a friend who got pretty excited about it after I demonstrated mine. He wants to use his to record from satellite during the week, so he can watch when he goes to his cabin on weekends.

                                      This is as close to ideal as I've found.

                                          I have VHS and Hi8 tapes from the 1980's I want to transfer to digital to easly handle and store in safe and share with others. With more than 40 tapes to have a store copy for $ each, decided to buy, record and edit myself.
