Sony DVD Recorder RDR-HXD790 Smart Link....

i bought this recorder and have connected it to my bravia tv via HDMI (for the DVD upscaling). however, i want to connect a scart lead so that i can use smartlink to record from my TV's tuner, not the recorder's. can i use both at the same time? that is, use HDMI for the picture and sound and the scart lead purely for recording on the TV's EPG.

From the instruction for my Sony RDR-HXD770 you cannot use scart and HDMI together. I tried connecting both myself it didn't work.

Personally I prefer the HDMI connection if set up correctly the DVD HD will automatically switch off when you switch the TV off if it is not recording.
