Setting up intergrated digital tv with DVD recorder

I have a Philips 28DW6559C tv with intergrated freeview. I have just bought a Panasonic DMRE-S10 DVD Recorder and i'm having trouble setting it up with the TV. I can get the recorder to install the analogue channels and i can record the digital channels when the TV is switched on. Due to the fact that the TV does the decoding for the digital element, i can't record digital channels without the TV being switched on. Is there any way to get round this without having to buy a freeview/sky box as this would defeat the object of having it built in.

PLEASE HELP!

Thats it mate, I"m the same, you will need an external freeview box (quite cheap) or go for the Panny DMR -E20 (built in dig tuner) to enable dig recordings with your tv off.
