Unfortunately, no, this is really not possible. Because the pvr functions are built into the tv, which has its own display, there are no accommodations for outputting video in this manner.
It may theoretically be possible to connect a vcr or dvd recording device via the scart connections, but because the tv has hdcp (copy protection) most content couldn't be transferred in the first place, and even if it did, you would have to do real time transfers. Meaning that it isn't a simple download, rather you'd have to play back a 1 hour recording for example, live, and record it, which would take an hour as well, during which the tv couldn't be used for any other function except playback.
If you want to do this on a regular basis, your best bet would be to forego the pvr functions built into the tv, which are pretty limited to begin with, and instead purchase an external tuner/recorder box, either a hdd or dvd (or even combo) type, using that to both watch and record as needed.
