Please I need a bit of advice. I have a Samsung hd ready tv and a Panasonic DVD/video recorder and have just purchased a Humax Freesat box, can anyone please tell me the best way to connect all three together thank you

Samsung into one SCART and DVD into the other?

I think you have a choice - the freesat signal can either go to the DVD/VCR via the TV in which case you connect them in parallel and I think you would need the TV on to record.

Alternatively they can be daisy chained:

Freesat- TV

The DVD/VCR effectively takes over the freesat box in play mode.

Do make sure that that SCART cable to the DVD/VCR is fully wired as dedicated DVD-TV cables are often not - one end is usually labeled DVD and the other TV.
