Unless your tv outputs the digital TV signal(highly unlikely) you won't be able to record the Freeview channels. A solution might be to purchase a cheap freeview box from the likes of ASDA for twenty odd quid. Or you could buy a recorder which is freeview ready.

Which Liteon model are you thinking of?

liteon 5026

This would be the one with 80gb drive and analogue TV Tuner, to record from freeview you'll need to a) follow my suggestion above about purchasing a freeview box or b) buying a DVD recorder with built in freeview tuner.

My Panasonic has av2 output which can be switched to output a DVB signal on scart connection this is connected to my Panasonic DVD recorder making it posible to record direct from DVB.So yes it is posible as long as you have the correct outputs from the T.V.
