I think what LV426 was getting at is that there is no recorder in your set - what you're seeing is the Sagem's ability to set a timer so that you can record from its internal Freeview tuner to an externally connected device (such as a DVD recorder or video recorder).
Yes sorry, I thought you were using an external recorder and was wanting to know what type/kind etc. If you haven't got a recorder then that explains your problem. This TV does not have any onboard means of storing a recorded programme. You'll need something else - a HDD-DVD or DVD recorder (or a VHS machine, even).
