I have a tv and a dvd/vcr unit do i need a 2 scart socket freeview box? If so why does the dvd/vcr need to go via freeview box?

Your dvd player goes in 1 scart socket on tv, and the freeview box goes in the other scart socket on your tv

just my old one is 2 scart and obvioulsy when it was set up they put the dvd/vcr through freeview, so wasnt sure if it needed to be that way, need a new freeview and making sure i dont need a two scart one

No, 1 scart socket will do fine :)

well, that wasn't mentioned but surely you could just record from the tv display. Just guessing that as Ive never done it. But pretty sure you could.

so i was right you do not need an aerial to run the dvd/vcr thats why i thought the vcr/dvd had been connected to the freeview

thank you kindly for the help and not ripping me to shreds lol

Long time since i've used scarts but generally if you have two scarts on the TV and say three devices then some people use the a VHS player as a 'pass through' so they can either record from the scart or if the VHS is turned off on the front the signal will pass directly to the TV.

If you have issues with scarts taking control if daisy chained in this way then you can do UHF loop through so it would be tv lead into the freeview box then into VHS then into TV and tune the freeview box into the VHS as a channel. You can then have scarts from VHS and Freeview going direct into the TV for regular viewing with the ability to record freeview on the VHS on a channel.

All from memory so may be completely wrong.

The ripped to shreds is generally when the person's known as a **** (bah filters ryhmes with bat) :p

@Jonny aye the record part was my presumption on why they would even suggest 2x scart variant

No recording done on it, wouldn't know how lol

its been in place a long time and cannot even remember who set it up, although looking at the back it was probably me just sticking leads in anywhere till it worked lol
