I'm trying to record a TV channel on my Video recorder. Its connected via scart lead to my Humax Freesat box. I can playback a tape OK, but when I try to playback something I've recorded from the TV all I get is multicoloured pixels. I wish to record a programme I'm currently watching. My TV is newish Sony Bravia 32".

I realise I cant record one channel & watch another without buying a Humax PVR which is released later this year.

Am I doing something wrong or is it that you just can't record Freesat at all?

Any advice appreciated, thanks.
