    Centrepin,

    What advice, exactly?

    Assuming you have the appropriate manuals, there should be connection diagrams showing what goes where.

    Please post back if you need further help. :)

    Hi,
    I'll make 2 assumptions - you won't use your VCR for recording and each peace of equipment has 2 scart sockets but your TV only has one RGB socket.
    Connect the VCR to the -in socket on the freeview box with a scart lead. Plug the aerial into the freeview box. Have a scart lead going from the -out socket on the freeview box to the -in socket on the DVD recorder. Connect another aerial lead between the RF loopthrough on the freeview box to the aerial socket on the DVD recorder. Have a scart lead going from the -out on the DVD recorder to the RGB scart socket on the TV.
    Hope this helps.

    Ta for the reply.........

    The VCR will be used for recording...........

    The TV has two Scart sockets,the Freeview box also has two Scarts.........

    So far I can play DVD's and VCR tapes through the TV.........

    The problems seem to be the VCR,,DVD,and Freeview set top box tuning of the TV channnels

    In that case just switch the vcr and the freeview box so the signal goes through the vcr and the dvdr.
    I don't think you can't tune the vcr or dvdr into the freeview box - they can only record the signal from the scart socket. To record you have to set the timer on the freeview box and the recorder.
