I have a non-digital Sony TV (3 scarts), a Panasonic DVD recorder (2 scarts), Sky (not plus, not HD) digibox (2 scarts) which work fine together. Analog TV has switched off here so I want to add a Thomson Freeview box (2 scarts) so I can watch or record from 2 sources. Is there an arrangement that would work, please?

Briantist: Thank you for the advice. The Freeview box (which is fairly old and basic, someone gave me it for nothing) claims to record, though I haven't tried it yet. But I really want to record to DVD with my Panasonic, and only use the Freeview box to access digital signals. I'm happy to buy extra equipment if I have to, but is it, basically, possible to wire up 2 different boxes (Sky and Freeview) to one DVD recorder/TV?

Part of Suffolk in with Newcastle? Please be serious. The BBC regions are already too large. I live in North Essex. What's Northampton? You can't remedy that by creating a coastal strip hundreds of miles long and calling it a region.

BBC a core service? But my core is BBC4 and Radio 3, and if they went, even I would start getting grumpy about licence fees. 95% of my viewing is BBC - nobody else makes programmes I want to watch. Oh, I forgot the cricket and football - but the BBC can't afford those, because...

Time for the BBC to release the DOGs?

If I'm watching TV and it doesn't say Sky Sports then I know I'm watching BBC.
