hi

If anyone can help I would really appreciate it.

I have just bought a Samsung bd-8900 bluray player with a hdd and freeview. I bought it so that I could record more films from my sky movies and put them on the hdd, but I am having trouble connecting the bluray up to the TV and the sky box. I can get the freeview from the recorder up on my tv and record from that but i want to reccord from sky. I am using hdmi from the bluray to tv and hdmi from sky to the TV.

Many thanks for any help!

Welcome to the forum.

I am afraid you have purchased the wrong product.

This unit is not capable of recording from an external source such as a sky box.
It can only record from off-air sources.

If this is a vital function then you need a Panasonic BDR [ or DVDR] machine which are proper recorders which are capable of recording external sources.
