I'd like try to help, but unfortunately, since you gave me a partial model number to work off, I'm not quite sure which model to research; please provide the complete model code for this device.
I just bought a Samsung Smart TV at the weekend (ES6200). I also bought a hard drive so that I could record digital TV through Freeview. Set it up to record last night but there was nothing recorded this morning. Is it not possible to record from Freeview while the TV is off?
