problems with freesat and HD recorder


Standard Member
I just got a goodmans HD receiver. I'm trying to play it through my samsung HR720 DVD/HD recorder. My TV is a LG Plasma HD ready (42LC46). I think the problem is the samsung doesn't recognise the HDMI (its not an option when you pick source to record) of the TV, and thats what I'm playing the goodmans receiver through. When I try to put it through the AV channel it still won't record and when I try a DVD it plays sound but no picture!

Help!! If that makes any sense does anyone know what I need to do?

HDMI/HDCP is designed to stop you doing what I think you are trying to do - record from a freesat HD box to a DVD/HDD recorder.

The HDMI output will only feed a TV or other display device. If you want to record you have to use SCART.
