Now that I have a G10, my Draco 6300 is redundant.
I have tried to set up the G10 and Panasonic DVD recorder so that I can record from Freeview. However, I haven't succeeded.

I have done the following:

UHF Aerial goes to DVD Recorder Aerial IN
DVD Aerial OUT to G10 Aerial IN
HDMI cable goes from DVD Recorder to G10 HDMI 2.

I cannot figure out how I get the Freeview signal to the DVD Recorder.

I have re-scanned for TV channels on the DVD Recorder but all that did was to find VHF stations (and I don't have a VHF Aerial).

Can anyone help please.

You can't.

There is no video output from the TV to hook into the DVD recorder.

If you want to record Freeview you'll need your Draco still.

Hey there.
I'm pretty sure when i was messing around with a 50" g10 last night at my mates it had a monitor out on the back, it's only rcas but it's better than nothing.
The way you currently got it set up it's probably sending plain ol' analogue to the dvd recorder because it doesn't have a built in digital tuner, then on to the tv where the digital tuner is so your tv should still display it.

Heres what you want to do:
UHF aerial from antennae into tv
RCA from tv monitor out into DVD recorder input

You'll only be able to record in SD because of the RCAs but it'll still be freeview.

It has taken a few days to get over the shock. I have spent countless hours on deciding upon a TV. Should it be LCD or Plasma; 42, 46 or 50"; can I find the right cabinet and so on. And after all that I made the wrong assumption that because the TV had built in Freeview then I could record from it.

I had plans for that Freeview box.

Most flat panel TV's don't have video outputs and haven't done so for quite some time. It would mean quite a bit of additional circuitry to acchieve this. It's not like the old days when TV's were all 576i video.
