DVDR/Digi Recorder Setup

I'm trying to add a Liteon LVW5006 DVD Recorder to my current system. I'm running a Humax 9300T Digi Recorder and an ancient (but still very functional) Sony TV. The DVDR was setup with the TV before we went digital and worked fine.

Here's the problem: I've set up the connections as recommended by Humax for RF Cable connection:

A. TV/VCR loop out of the digibox to aerial input of the DVDR

B. Aerial output of the DVDR to Aerial input of TV

C. External aerial remains connected to the digibox

Having done that, I can't tune the DVDR on the TV--AV just gives me snow--I can't find a workable channel or test pattern to setup the DVDR or play DVDs--I'm assuming this is because the external aerial goes directly into the digibox, but stymied nevertheless. Is there something wrong with the way I've set it up or, alternatively, would a SCART connection from digibox to DVDR solve the problem. There's no SCART connection on the TV (I told you it was ancient).

Thanks in advance
