I take it the DVD recorder doesn't have a Freeview tuner built in, if it has , there shouldn't be any problem. What I think you need to do is read your TV manual, not sure where to look, maybe Freeview tuner or recording from Freeview.
I would think you have to programme the TV to output the desired Freeview channel to your DVD recorder, you'll probably find only one scart will do this.
All you do then is to change the input channel on DVD recorder to correspond with the scart from the TV.(i.e.AV1/AV2/AV3.
I hope I've understood your problem correctly, Good Luck! :rtfm:
