    Just installed a goddmans GDVD301RP (tesco cheapie) for my mother with a Grundig GDT 1500 free view box. The only prob i have is the DVR, when auto scanning for channels wont pick up any signal from free view box. Although the normal channels are coming throught it. coax>>>into>>>free veiw>>>into>>>DVR>>>into>>>tv and
    free veiw>>>>scart>>>>DVR>>>Scart>>>TV
    Is this a limitation of the free view box of a problem????

    I think you might need an extra scart.

    Scart linking freeview and tele
    Scart linking DVDR and tele
    Scart linking DVDR and freeview

    Could be wrong though

    It's probably because the Freeview Digibox won't have an rf modulator and therefore cannot be tuned into the DVDR via RF like a normal broadcast.
    You need to connect it via a scart lead and to record it select that AV input on the DVDR.
