You can record freeview programs, not the signal from your VM box.

ok did you mean to say record any channel i am watching on the virgin box.

No, you can't do that.
You can only record programs that are transmitted terrestrially and are received through the aerial socket on the freeview box. You will not be able to record anything you are viewing on VM.

You will not be able to record anything from your Virgin box, or any other external source, onto this device. You will only be able to record from the recorders own Freeview tuners.

sorry for being stupid. but if i am watching something on tv, can i not record it on a box despite what ever device i am using.
if this is not possible then there should be something outthere that allows recording channels.
