1. Plug your aerial lead into the aerial socket (1) on your Freeview HD Recorder.

2. Using a SCART cable connect any SCART socket on your TV to the port marked AV1 on your Freeview HD Recorder (2).

3. Using the second SCART cable , connect the Freeview HD Recorder to the DVD player (3).

The exact arrangement of sockets will vary across products. If you require further support, consult your user manuals or contact the manufacturers of your equipment.
