I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
Please note, I am just a moderator for this category, I can only try and find experts to help, I can't answer the question itself.
Quite happy to wait.
We will continue to look for a Professional to assist you.
Thank you for your patience,
I wanted to ask you if you can record on the HDD recorder what you're watching on the TV when connected to the TV's SCART, or only what the channel that the recorder is set to?
If you plug the DVD recorder or Sky box directly into the TV's HDMI port (bypassing your HDMI switch) can you then watch DVDs?
What is the make & model of the HDMI switch please?
