    Q) How do I connect up a DVD Recorder (DVDR) with the Hummy and TV.

    A) (i) DVDR has 2 scarts and RGB pass-through and records RGB
    Connect Hummy TV Scart to DVDR input and DVDR Output to TV RGB scart
    Set Hummy TV output to RGB and DVDR input and output to RGB

    (ii) DVDR has 2 scarts but no RGB pass-through or only 1 scart and records s-video
    Connect Hummy TV scart to TV RGB scart and Hummy VCR scart to DVDR input scart
    Set both Hummy VCR output and DVDR input to s-video

    (iii) DVDR only records CVBS (composite video)
    Connect Hummy TV scart to TV RGB scart and Hummy VCR scart to DVDR input scart
    Set both Hummy VCR output to CVBS

    Q) Can I record to DVDR while I am recording 2 channels on the Hummy.

    A) Yes, Subject to the same restrictions as watching a third channel whilst recording 2 others.
    Be aware that if a recording starts on the Hummy whilst you are recording to DVDR there will
    be an onscreen message which will also be recorded on the DVDR.

    Q) Do I need to connect the aerial lead to the DVDR?

    A) Only if you intend to record from the DVDR's internal tuner, then connect the RF out of the hummy to the aerial socket on the DVDR and the RF out of the DVDR to the TV. The hummy should always be the first connection from the aerial in any chain of equipment.
