    Can somebody who has one of these let me know what happens if you are watching Sky on the tv and then press the "DIRECT RECORD" button.

    Does it record the Sky picture or does it record whatever analogue channel the TV is tuned to.

    What about integrated digital tvs? Would you record the digital freeview picture if that is what the TV was displaying ?

    I am trying to work out how big a problem not having a digital tuner is.

    Thanks

    Does this "direct record" feature work by taking the image output from the TV's av2 socket? In which case it might be able to record Sky, or the internal dgitial tuner

    It records whatever is coming out of the TV scart socket the 630's TV out is connected to.
    Some TVs give alternatives for this - e.g. Sonys. Not all TV scarts route an output through them. The ones that accept RGB are sometimes in this category. You need to read the TV manual.
    Also, Direct Record is usually incompatible with the use of RGB from 630 to TV and maybe with s-video.
    The facility is based on the bidirectional capability of the scart design in composite mode.
    If you are using RGB you should ensure that the 630 is in DVD mode. In TV mode you will get a composite signal from its scart regardless of the Video out setting.
    Press DVD/TV on the remote so it shows DVD (on the TV screen and the 630 front panel).
