    I've just subscribed to Sky+ & before that I had a Freeview box. If I wanted to record something of Freeview, I had to program the Freeview box to start the film/program & then set a recording time on my Sony GX300 DVD recorder. The DVD player channel was Line 3 & played what I wanted to be recorded through this channel. Alternatively, I could put the DVD player in Synchro mode. This would automatically know there was a signal coming from another source & start recording through Line 3.

    My question. Is this the same for Sky+, as my scart leads are connected the same way as the Freeview box was, to the DVD recorder?

    Just use the Sky Plus box to do the recordings. If you then want to copy stuff to the DVD recorder use the Sky+ 'copy' function. Just set off the copy when you go to bed and leave it to record.

    Yes that's by far the best method.

    Last night I decided to back up some movies from Sky onto my DVD Recorder. I started the process & left it over night. This morning the Sky+ box was in standby, is this normal for the box to do this after using the Copy function?
