    Ok this has been wrecking my head for the last couple of weeks. I have content on my UPC Cable Digi box that I want to record off before it gets switched out for a new one. The problem is my DVD recorder has packed in but I have the Iomega ScreenPlay Director Tuner TV Media Player Hard Drive which records of regualr TV when I plug in the antenna in the back.

    I can play regular TV through this antenna but I cant seem to play my Cable Digi box through this. Is it possible? Basically Im just trying to record this content onto my media device. Ive tried other forums with no response and sorry if this has been mentioned and answered before

    Cheers

    I dont think so, the Iomega would have to have a composite video input which is not the same as the TV antenna input.

    You can get cheap capture cards for PC's I think that would be the quickest option.

    So basically the scart in the back is just for output to TV?

    Unless Iomega specifically state that it's an input then it's just an output yes.
