Novice Member
Hi, I,m a complete technophobe and came across this Forum and thought this will help me with my latest query re Technology of one kind or another. I,ve just got this Sony tv and apparently to be able to use the Freeview Play i have to connect an HDD Recorder,so this is my far as i,m aware there are 2 types of Recorder...1 Recorder WITH Tuner..or 2 Tuner WITHOUT the Tuner..which beings as the TV has all the Channels why have a Recorder that has them as well...or,does the HDD Recorder with a Tuner completely overide the Programmes installed on the TV....Told you i was a Technophobe! Thanks in advance for any advice.

To use Freeview Play you buy and connect a USB HDD (Hard Disc Drive) to the USB3 socket.
You then call up the TV guide on the TV and select a programme to record to the HDD.
