    Can anyone tell me if it is possible to record TV programmes via a digibox to DVD Recorder and a VHS? I have them all set up, but can only record the programmes in analogue format. Am I just wiring them up wrong?

    Any digibox (SKY, cable or DTT) will have analogue outputs (scart, s-video, RF) which will connect to any DVD recorder or VHS on the market allowing you to record the output.

    The trick is to make sure whatever method you use to connect the two boxes you make sure you tell the VHS/DVDr which input it has to look at to record.
    Most VCR's will have something like AV1, AV2, SAT, L1 or something similar.
    Manuals are a handy thing to keep hold of:)
