There was probably no need for the scart-HDMI convertor.
Although most modern TV's no longer have scart sockets most of them have component/composite inputs.
BTW, with queries like this it's always a good idea to include equipment model numbers.

many thanks for you reply, the samsung tv is a 65 inch7100 which seems to have only two component in ports one yellow and one blue and they don't seen to hold a lead in tightly and seem very loose. now that i have bought the start to HDMI connector i can't work out why the setup is not finding any channels

Those two sockets are for component and composite video/audio connections by way of the supplied short adaptor cables.
I would suggest you retune your DVDR by connecting it temporarily to another TV with a scart socket then reconnect it to your new TV once done.
I doubt the new TV or it's connection method has anything to do with the DVDR not finding any channels.
Go through the setup menu and if you have a “First Time Installation” option select that.
