you will beable to record the digital freeview channels tough the boxes own tuner and aerial connection.

To record from the NTL cable box you will need to connect via scart and select the scart input channel.

thanx for that Fruit Bat /\0/\.i seem to be able to record freeview but the dvd recorder wont even recognize the cable box even though theres a scart connecting them.

You may well need to select a 'source' so that the DVD Recorder is looking at the SCART rather than the Freeview DTT tuner. In the days of analogue you could often select Channel 0 for the SCART. Can I suggest the manual may tell you how?

Look for "Input Select" on the Remote.
