With a single cable, HDMI enables transmission of not only A/V signals but also control signals. All you have to do to enjoy a new level of operation convenience is hook up to a VIErA or home theater system with VIErA Link compatibility.

I own a Panasonic DMR-EX79 DVD recorder and its inabilitly to view or record hd signals makes it useless to me. I wish I had not bought it.

We bought a Panasonic believing it would be sturdy and reliable. Well, in 3 years it has broken down twice (refused to read half the DVD including new ones and the HDD went down). The fact that it can't decode HD is not good either. So not that impressed.
