    When recording from terestrial TV, all recordings are green.
    Not a green tinge, but the whole screen flashes green - therefore picture unwatchable.

    The media is Philips CD+RW
    Aerial input is standard coax, but is via Goodmans Freeview box.
    Freeview box is switched OFF.
    DVDR75 is an English version 6 months old, with no firmware upgrades.

    Could there be a problem with the DVDR75 tuner ?
    Or could it be because of aerial input via the Freeview box ?

    Any suggestions / help much appreciated

    Thanks
    Pete

    If the DVD recorder plays back other DVDs OK it sounds like a fault in the built in tuner.

    Does it record OK from Freeview via scart?

    When you say switched off, do you mean power off at the wall socket or in standby? If the former, it should be OK in standby - the freeviw box aerial pass-through probably doesn't work in total power off mode.

    Are the terrestrial recordings OK with the Freeview box switched on?

    Is the recorder output mode set to match the TV input scart capability?
    s-video output into an RGB TV scart or vice versa will give unpredictable results.

    Without knowing your wiring arrangements and the various output and input settings it isn't possible to suggest alternatives at this point.
    Just make sure the input and output modes match.

    But if your Freeview box is sending RGB to the recorder and the recorder is sending s-video to the TV then the Freeview signal will not pass through the recorder in power off mode.
