On the Humax Foxsat SCART connections can I connect another HDR (Sony) so that I can copy a saved programme from the other recorder to the Humax Foxsat? I can do it the other way since the Sony has a select Input button (lines 1,2,3) The Foxsat box doesn't seem to have this - so I assume there is no recording from SCART input only pass through.
You are correct the Humax Foxsat is only able to record from its own internal tuners not from an external input.

I have a Samsung LCD 40" HD 1080p TV and a Panasonic Blur-ray 5.1 SC-BTT270. I have had no problems with the two automatically connecting for the last eight months but now upon switching the blue ray player on it no longer automatically connects and i get a black screen saying 'no signal'. I have tried:All three HDMI connections on the TV but to no avail. I have checked the HDMI lead elsewhere and it works okI have tried the blue ray player with a monitor with an HDMI connection and all worked ok. I have also tried a sony playstation Blue ray with the TV and all worked ok. I have also updated the firmware on the blue ray player so up to date.
This sounds very much like an problem with the HDMI handshake between the two devices. There's lots of information about resetting this online that I needn't reproduce here but you should start by unplugging both devices from the mains, along with HDMI connection between them. Reconnect the HDMI cable, then plug in and turn on your HDTV and then plug in and turn on your Blu-ray player. You can also reverse the order of plugging the devices in this doesn't help but ensure your devices are unplugged for at least 10 seconds so they forget the previous handshake.

I bought an LG HDTV and LG surround sound but I cannot get the surround sound to work with the HD Freeview that was on the TV.
You'll need some kind of connection back to or though your surround sound system in order for the audio from your Freeview HD box playing though your speakers. This can be an HDMI pass-though, HDMI-CDC from the TV if has one, or an analogue or digital audio connection depending on the outputs and inputs on the devices you have.

I have a TV that has a built in DVD player which only plays European DVD's. I am looking at getting a multi region DVD player but my TV appears to have no SCART socket for the cable. Can you please advise me on how I can watch the many US DVDs I have that I used to watch on my laptop that has since broken?
I'd first search online to see if there's a code or sequence you can enter with the remote to enable a 'region free;' mode. If you can't do that you'll need to find a muli or region-free DVD player with a video output you can connect to whatever video input(s) you have on your TV. If you have a 3-phono component video input you can by a cheap adapter that will 'extract' the component video signals from a SCART socket so you can use a component cable to connect the two.

I have bought new Full-HD TV with Freeview HD. Can we plug in an aerial forFreeview HDat the same time as a SCART plug for Sky+ (not HD)?
Yes you certainly can, you'll just need to change between the two inputs/sources using your TV's remote when you want to watch the other service.,

How do you tune in channels on a Samsung BD-HDD Combo?
You will need to connect it to an aerial and then tune/scan for channels depending on the model you have in the initial set-up menu.

How do I record a DVD from my Sky HD box so as to have a permanent record of an event?
You should be able to connect the two via a SCART connection and use the Copy functionality of your Sky box to play one or more recording continuously so you can set your DVD recorder recoding them.

I have a Humax HDRFox-T2 HD PVR 500Gb recorder attached by HDMI to a Samsung UE32D5520R 32" Smart LED TV and also attached to my TV is a Samsung BD5300 Blu-ray player. I have no problems recording with my Humax except if the Blu-ray DVD is on. The blue ray connects and disconnects as an Anytime+ device but blocks my recording in spite of being connected by a separate HDMI cable and point on the back of the TV. I am a Freeview user only and my area cable enters directly to my Humax box and therefore I cannot understand why my recording would be blocked when my DVD is on. Can anyone shed light on this?
This does sound strange indeed! I would try either moving your Blu-ray player to a different non-HDMI-CDC/Anytime+ HDMI port or simply disabling that functionality on your devices as that seems to be the most likely source of the problem.
