Yes, you should be able to - but you will only be able to record in standard definition.

Connect the decoder to the recorder using composite video cables - the ones with three RCA plugs (yellow, red and white) at each end.

and sadly that's only an analogue dub - which is why it is SD.

skuzzb: so i connect decoder to recorder with 3 cables and then from recorder to tv?is that correct?

That will only give you SD picture on the TV.
I'd connect the T1020 to the TV via HDMI for HD picture.
Connect the T1020 to the recorder via composite A/V.
Connect the recorder to the TV via HDMI for upscaled SD (assuming your recorder will upscale and your TV has multiple HDMI inputs).
