Hi and welcome to JustAnswer; an independent site with members providing product information, repair tips and technical assistance as a form of paid Q & A service.
My name is ***** ***** I'll be assisting you with your question.

Expert:  Louie replied 8 months ago.

Initially, re-confirm and post back with the complete model numbers of the "...standard foxtel box...TV..." Additionally, please describe how the standard foxtel box is connected to the TV using what kind of cable(s).

before we go any further at this stage can you please answer my original question - should i be able to connect this model to the foxtel set top box
Expert:  Louie replied 8 months ago.

Yes; IF and only IF the "...foxtel set top box..." has a set of unused analog Audio/Video outputs compatible with the INPUTs of the DVD Recorder.

In most versions of the DMR-XW440, there would be a provision for IN (jacks for VIDEO & R-AUDIO-L) that serve as recording inputs to this Panasonic.

Without specific/detailed information, model numbers, jacks and ports available, what are currently in use, to what device, then next best would be pictures.

I can only work on the information provided or be limited by the lack thereof.

Expert:  Louie replied 8 months ago.

Done; "...refund please..." relayed to Customer Service through channels.
Please do not post a reply so as not to re-open the question thread.
