I have now got a Pioneer DVR-220-S. I am trying to figure out the best way to record programmes and have the ability to switch channels on my Humax F2-FOX T Freeview box. The Freeview box allows you to schedule channel changes and the Pioneer allows auto timer to respond to a signal from the SCART. The trouble is it looks like when you put the DVD recorder into standby awaiting the signal it immediately restarts and begins recording if the Freeviw box is on as it's detecting the signal right away. If I switch the Freeview box off it will not come back on even though a programme is scheduled. The only other option is to either set the Freeview box 'ON' timer to switch on at the time of the scheduled recording which will set off the DVD recorders auto timer detection or set the timer on the DVD recorder to begin at the same time the schedule is set on the Freeview box and then let the Freeview box do it's scheduled channel changing thing. Kinda annoying as an extra timer step has to be taken other than just setting a schedule on the freeview box and putting the DVD recorder into auto timer standby mode which would have been ideal. Hmm.
