    Whatever HDD/DVDR combi you have it will only have an analogue tuner. Accordingly all you will ever pickup on the 'channels' is the analogue channels (BBC1, BBC2, ITV1, C4, C5). To record from freeview you need to connect the Freeview box to the DVD recorder by scart and select the relevant input channel, e.g. A2, to be able to view the output of the Freeview box. Switch the Freeview box to the correct channel - and your ready to go!

    Hi thx.

    I already had one scart to tv from freeview box and another one from freeview box to dvd r but it wouldnt pick up the stations.

    I have no connected freeview to dvd r and it works when selecting line 2 etc but i have to now watch freeview through my dvd r all the time unless i swap scarts round all the time its a pain.

    I can always just connect this way whenever i wanna record something i guess or maybe i'mm figure another way.]

    Thx for your help.
