Hey Guys.

Whats Happening.
I am Buying a Panasonic DMR-EH58 Recorder Soon. I have already got a Panasonic Viera 32" HD Ready. I dont have sky nor do I have Freeview. I Have a baby sitting camera which uses AV Cables.

What I want to do.. And Questions
1. I want to view the free channels by putting the analogue cable into the DVD recorder and Having an HDMI output. Will this Upscale all the channels avaliable? I just want to Upscale Normal TV.

2. Will the DVD Recorder play HD DVDs?

3. Can I view FreeView Channels?

4. Can I plug in my Nintendo Wii, Analogue TV AND Baby Sitting Camera (AV Cables) and Expect HD output? If I can plug all this in, how can I navigate through all this through 1 HDMI Channel? Note I want to record the Baby Sitting Camera.

5. Does it have VGA input? If it Does, Can it Give HD OUTPUT?

6. How will I be able to pause Live TV?

Sorry For all these Questions. Just New and I am not a Good Researcher. I am pretty Sure the Recorder Supports Viera Link.

1: Unlikely. Even if it does upscaling analogue TV will probably deliver a horrible picture.

2: No

3: No

4: No

5: No

6: Assuming the DVD recorder has a timeshift mode you can use this.

I have the EH68 which, as far as I am aware, is the same as the EH58 except for a larger hard drive. Sbiddle's answers are correct. On 6, I confirm it will pause live TV.
