A silly question? Am I right in thinking that to record a terrestrial digital channel (from the integrated digital receiver) from an iDTV (Sony 32DX50 is the model I'm thinking of buying) the TV would have to be switched on? Currently with my Set Top Box I can record a 'freeview channel' on a Scart-connected VCR by selecting the particular channel on the STB and recording from there - having to leave the STB switched on!! If I buy an iDTV I can also (as I understand it) connect it to a VCR (or DVD-R for that matter) and record a digital channel in the same manner as before - whilst watching an analogue channel if I so wish. What happens though if I wish to record something overnight or when I'm out? Rather than having to leave just the STB on with the VCR on standby timer as I currently do will I have to leave the TV on also? Even if the TV has a Timer-ON function (which some do I beleive - although I'm not sure if the DX50 is one if them) this seems to be a downside of iDtv's. Am I missing something or am I being stupid?
