Can I link my DVD recorder to a digital TV?
Yes, this is not the most versatile method of connection, but is adequate if you only occasionally want to record from TV. Connecting the DVD recorder (or hard drive recorder) to a SCART connection at the back of the TV will allow you to record whatever is on the TV screen, so long as the TV is switched on. The recordings will be in standard ‘video’ quality and not the best RGB quality. See our Connection Wizard for connection diagrams. But remember, to watch and record from different digital channels, you will need two digital tuners in your set-up, see Recording options
