I would be very grateful for any help (in very simple terminology please) for the following set up.

Samsung Series 5 LCD TV
Sony DVD/Recorder HXD 870
Humax Foxsat HD

I am unable to record Freesat programmes although I can play dvd's. I think I have set the tv/dvd incorrectly. Can anyone give me some assistance:lease:

Connect a fully wired scart from Foxsat TV out scart to Line 1 of DVD recorder.

In the DVDR setup menu check that line video input is set to RGB. [ Video input / output settings]

To record from Foxsat, select Line 1 as the input using the input select button on the DVDR remote [ 3rd button down on right]

Play the Foxsat material, press record on the DVDR. Monitor via TV.

Thanks for that, it was really helpful. I can now record programmes.

What I would now like to do is to record using the timer (handset) by recording one channel and watch another channel at the same time. (say: record a BBC 1 programme and watch ITV1).

Can you help:lease:
