My aerial is connected directly to my Sony RDR-DX860 DVD/HDD Freeview recorder, then from the recorder to my Sony Bravia 20" Freeview TV. The picture via the DVD recorder breaks up every now and again for about 10 seconds or more on occasions, however, the TV picture is always perfect. I find this a bit annoying when recording. Tonight I unplugged the aerial from the DVD Rec and plugged it directly into the TV and the picture remained perfect with no break ups. I cannot understand why the picture is breaking up when firstly plugged into the DVD recorder, also when I retune it picks up 188 tv / radio stations when the TV only picks up 94 (exactly double). Is there a fault with the DVD Rec ?
