And it's the same way with older gear that had to be on to work. You would need an external freeview "box" or "thing".
How can I use my DVD recorder to record from the built in TV freeview, without losing freeview signal when the TV is switched off?
If I want to timer record several programs the TV has to be left on for the duration, or the screen is blank on playback.
