I'm very sorry to hear that has happened, and I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. In order for me to help you most accurately, please provide the complete model code for your TV.
I have a Samsung Smart tv with built in freeview. I would like to connect a Humax Hd recorder, however this also comes with freeview. If I connect this, will it damage the freeview that is built in to my tv? Thanks
