Question about Televison & Video
I've had this recorder for a couple of years, but I have never been able to get it to record from my set to box (Freeview). It lets me watch the channels on freeview but cannot record them. Also what is the correct cable/Scart connections for the set top as I have moved it and cannot find again the correct connection.
Thank you in

It is possible to record a Digital Channel using your Panasonic TV's
DVB Tuner instead, as all Panasonic DVB TV's output a recordable
Digital signal via a rear Scart Socket, usually AV2. (Panasonic LCD
& Plasma models may provide additional AV recording options
switchable via Menu), while allowing you to watch any alternative
Analogue TV channel or vise-versa.
Timer recordings can also be set using the TV's built-in timer to control 'Q-Link' (Next View Link) or 'External Link' enabled DVD's & VCR's.
The only requirement is the DVD Recorder or Video Tape Recorder has a Scart 'Input' socket.

OK, I think I see the problem there.
The aerial lead from the DVDR to TV should be removed.
You should have it setup the same as the other Freeview - VCR - TV
Main aerial to Freeview input.
Loop aerial from freeview output to DVDR areial input (all this does is allow you to watch freeview, or standard both out of the DVDR)
Scart from Freeview to DVDR input
Scart from DVDR output to TV
Set DVDR to AV input mode.
Set TV to AV (whatever number you need for that..you now won't get anything on screen unless you have the right input selected)
If you can now see the Freeview picture on the TV and change the channels with the Freeview remote then you should be set for recording.
Having the aerial and a scart lead both going to the TV is not needed.
