Can 42PV500 record onto SD from Scart?

I have the 42PV500 and it is a fantastic screen, especially with a chipped Xbox and XBMC.

I have question which I can't seem to find the answer to anywhere. I want to record a program off Sky connected to AV4 (RGB Scart) to the SD card, but when I press the Record button it just completely ignores it. Same with the Component input selected, nothing.

If I switch to the internal DVB tuner and press the record button then it works great. This seems a little restrictive to me, but I have never seen the question raised on these forums and I did search.

What really has be confused about all of this is my friend at work has the 37PV500 and he can record off Sky into Scart fine. Whats going on?

Also, can you record something that is not actually showing on the screen?

Thanks

Please can somebody answer this problem for me?

There are lots of PV500 owners on this forum that must have tried this.

Thanks

Actually my mate is not lying. He has brought recordings of Hex and other Sky One recordings in on his phone to show me.

There IS some way to do this, on the 37" at least.

No, Sky one is not on Freeview.

Just called Panasonic helpline and was told the following.

PV500 CAN record from Scart, but only from AV1. The record button will be ignored on all other connections. My sky box is on AV4 and my friends is on AV1!!!
