I have just received my new 5045GDL+. Does anyone have a freeview box attached via the scart at all? I assume there is no way to program the whole Freeview channel list into the 5045? If it is connected via scart, the channel switching will be done manually on the Freeview remote yeah? Would I be correct in saying that the only channels in the Channel Editor would be the terrestial ones (BBC1, 2 Ch4, 5 etc)
How is the "Decode" function suppose to work in the Channel Editor (page 25)? There isn't much documentation about it in the manual.
Finally... I don't want to re-kindle the whole Widescreen bug / fault / annoyance thing again, but tell me is this what others are reporting...
When I record a Freeview channel via the scart, it is recorded anamorphically "squished". When I play it back, it remains like this and I have to manually switch my TV into Widescreen mode to stretch it out again. If this is the same thing then fine. Or maybe I am incorrect and doing something wrong.
