Ooo, I desperately need help with this too. I thought I was usually quite good at this kind of thing but my new DVD recorder has completely defeated me, and several others who have had a go at sorting it all out.
Somehow connecting the TV, DVD recorder and Freeview with any combinations of wirework, results in the same thing - I can record only terrestrial channels but am not able to watch anything, not even the programme I am recording, at the same time.
I am starting to long for my old VHS system and the temptation to throw the whole lot over the balcony is almost overwhelming.
So, copious beer/wine for any volunteer, as above. I am over near St George's Circus
