Hello, my name is Rusty. If you would still like to record to DVDs, then you can use a simple splitter. Here's an example:

That will split the signal that is going into your DVD recorder, so that you will have a cable for both recorders.
Let me know if you have any questions.

We don't want to record to DVDs, we just want to be able view DVDs on the DVD viewer/ recorder. We want to be able to record to the HDD recorder and also have Freeview and other online services such at Netflix.

Rusty, Engineer replied 1 year ago.
Ok, then you can remove the coax cable from the DVD recorder, and move it to the input on your HDD recorder. You will still be able to watch DVD movies, as long as you leave the cable that connects your DVD directly to your TV.
The HDMI will carry the signal to your TV for Netflix, and the coax will allow you to view the TV programming, which is also sent through HDMI.

Is that both RF In and RF Out? Sorry, I haven't a clue!

Rusty, Engineer replied 1 year ago.
Connect the cable from the wall to RF In on your HDD recorder. Connect the HDD recorder to your TV with HDMI. Your HDD recorder is now set.
To check your DVD player, it either has to have HDMI to your TV, -OR-, RF Out to your TV with coax. Your DVD player will no longer use the RF In port.

Well it seems to be working but now just have to set up the HDD recorder! Fingers crossed - thanks for your help.

Rusty, Engineer replied 1 year ago.
You are very welcome! As long as you have picture, it's connected correctly. Setting it up can take some time, so take your time, and you'll have the hang of it fairly quickly.
