OK I see what you mean and I understand now. The channel allocations of the Freeview box do not match that of the EPG on the HDRW720.
I guess the issue is with the EPG supplier to get it corrected, since there isn’t a two-way connection that allows the HDRW720 to influence that. I vaguely remember something about how to reset the EPG on these older Philips machines, and then allowing them to repopulate over a short time. However I still think you will have to edit something in the timer settings because recording from your Freeview box is always going to be via the external input and not whatever channel the EPG decides to place in the field.
I’ll transfer this to the Philips DVD Recorder forum here, where someone with a similar setup might be able to help.
