I assume by one connection you mean the RF connector.
Not sure what a freebox is.
Cble from the out side to the VCR, a/v cabel fromt ehDVD to the VCR. VCR to the TV. John

A Freeview Box is the same as a cable t.v. only you don't pay any subscriptions and your channels are more limited.
I take it this will make a difference to the set up?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
