Panasonic report there is no reminder function on the Electronic Programme Guide.
This seems to be a serious omission given that other brands provide this feature even on their cheapest sets.
now £348.97 from here http://www.electricalexperience.co.uk/panasonic-tx-l32e6b-tx-l32e6-32-inch-e6-range-smart-viera-led-tv-with-super-slim-bezel-web-browser.html?awc=2276_1382462756_4db1c77700e17808ed10d4af8ec8b207
This is a very fine screen. Very clean on its HDMI inputs especially. Straight off a high quality professional video camera feed the results are as good as quite a few professional monitors I have tried.
Freeview HD quality is good but the colours are a bit glary in comparison with the output of a Sky HD box on the same channel.
Maybe Freeview HD is always a bit glary on all tv's, but when the screen is this good it is a bit of a shame.
Update to comment below. I saw this in John Lewis today. (£389)
Freeview SD picture was indeed dire! (Not just a litlle below par but bl### awful!)
This wasn't due to the shop's aerial feed as other adjacent TVs looked far better with the same programmes on.
Thin sound and rubbish picture (on all but HD / Blu-ray) must surely merit the loss of at least one star. This size of TV is much more likely to be expected to be a good all rounder rather than the centre-piece of a home cinema setup. More reason why sound and SD / DVD performance should be decent.
Looks like i'll be keeping my two year-old 32" Panasonic for now (5 stars and award winner in 2010). It's a bit heaver and has a thicker bezel but the picture is excellent with HD and SD and upscaled DVD (and the sound is pretty good too).
Pointless buying something that only has a good picture with HD / Blu-ray (and has a 'thin, bright sound') just for the sake of of a thinner bezel.
It doesn't even have ITV Player or 4oD so no gain there either. (Panasonics must be the dumbest 'smart' TVs out there by now!)

A seriously talented performer that has a few design issues
This is a top-notch surround package for the money. It’s a worthy alternative to the award-winning KEF R100 5.1
A great amp with some notable musical skills, but it loses a star compared with its better-performing, better-specified rivals
