DVD recorders usually connect via a SCART cable - as presumably you did with your VCR.

There's no "finding a channel" to do - you need to select the SCART input on the DVD. It's usually AV or EXT on the remote.

Having a Spanish TV is neither here nor there as long as you use SCART cables throughout.

SCART from Digibox to TV (from the Digibox TV SCART)

SCART from Digibox to DVD (from the Digibox VCR SCART).

The only problem comes if you want to record Spanish TV from the aerial - then you would also need a Spanish DVD recorder, as the Sound IF frequency is different.

PS - can you get Channel 5 where you are - if not let me know and I'll tell you how to.

Also - although Channel 4 is a very weak signal, the new Channel 4+1 signal is stronger, and so usually better.

Thanks for the help I can now record. I can receive channel 5 although when it rains its a terrible picture and yes we do get better picture channel 4+1.
