Freeview box and VCR

I've just bought a new Durabrand Freeview box from ASDA. It works fine, but I cannot figure out how to connect it to my VCR so that I can record programmes on Freeview. Plus, to record on the VCR the other programmes, I have to disconnect from Freeview. This can't be right. I donít think itís to do with reception problems Ė just getting the right cables in the right sockets. This is my first Freeview box (Durabrand, £30 from ASDA). Cheers.

I don't know what that is. But to help with the problem, this is what I have:

TV - 2 scart sockets
Freeview - 2 scart sockets
VCR - 1 scart socket

So where do the leads go, please?

If you've only got one SCART on your VCR then you're going to have problems connecting both your TV and Freeview box to it via SCART.

However, as this is a TiVO forum, you're not going to have much joy convincing people that this is a major issue.

you may find more help on Digital Spy
