No you cannot record on to your pvr in HD, and yes you will have to wait for an HD-pvr unit. This is because of the HDCP agreements.

My VCR/DVD, freeview box and non digital tv will show prerecorded video and DVD but will not record (or if it has it will not display). Could it be that the set up is not wired up correctly? The freeview...


Unless the Freeview box has two tuners then your going to have problems anyway when you want to record something and watch the non-digital TV at the same time. The solution is simple get another Freeview box (they are around £10 at the moment on E-Buyer.Com) get a box like this:


grubhead_17.jpg Available on Amazon (Scart switching box). This plugs into the TV or you can connect via one of the freeview boxes. Whatever works best.
The VCR has the other Freeview box connected to the second scart. (select AV2 when setting the channel to record and set the box to the channel you want to record) the first scart from the VCR plugs into the above box. When you want to watch press the switch.
By the way if the VCR has PDC on it set it to off, as it no longer works with digital.

Greetings from Aus Is it possible to download the HD content to PC ?


yes it is,,, as long as your monitor is HD (any other monitor is a waste of time)... you can use VLC

if its on Video, you need a HD DVD recorder... burn to DVD upload to PC (this is the quick way)
other than that you will need to get adapters / download all sorts software and sit (real time) to upload

Connecting a freeview box


Your dvd player should be connected to the TV INPUT under norma conditionsl.What kind of recorder are you using? VCR player ?, Is it also a VCR recorder ( one cannot assume because I happened to own a VHS\vcr PLAYER, not player & recorder)Is Your VCR recorder? Then It must be connected to freeview box with universal scart to RCA converter box.You have "" dvd player in av2, vcr av1"" where? TV? freeview box scart connector ?
You will need scart to RCA converter box for sure.

Similar problem as you helped me solve before.


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
Nutshell time:
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)
So..
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.
