Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority.
the tv will not be able to output video to an external recorder directly, and the internal freeview tuner won't work outside the UK,
so what you'll need is an external dvr device that has a built in tuner, which is compatible with the broadcast signals in your area.
These can be difficult to find online, so your best bet is to locate one for sale at a local electronics shop, so you can be assured that it would be compatible with the local television broadcast signals in your area.
Once you have a tuner/dvr box, it would connect simply to samsung via a standard hdmi or component/composite video cable
all recording, scheduling, and playback functions would take place using the dvr remote, they are not a function of the tv or samsung remote
Thank you, Nathan. That was very helpful. In the UK I used an old Panasonic recoding device (DMR-EX769) which was connected to my Sky+ box by scart. Following your advice, I'm looking now for an HDMI in/out DVR/tuner box.
I can buy it here, of course, but I would greatly appreciate a recommendation.
Can you help?
I'm referring the last para of your answer: "All recording, scheduling, and playback functions would take place using the dvr remote, they are not a function of the tv or samsung remote":
If I'm connected by VPN to another country's TV, can I record the live screening to the DVR using its AV channels?
