Hi,Thank you for using Just Answer my name is Carl and I will help with your question.I think you have set it up right. I would connect the freesat box to the dvd recorder using a scart lead you will then be able to record whatever the freesat playing. If you were out and you wanted to record something you would need to leave the freesat playing on the channel and then program the dvd to record at the correct time.
Thanks you for your reply I have a scart into the tv but when I record I find that it has recorded what I am watching!!
