Connecting VCR to DVD Recorder via Scart

Please can someone help me.

I have just bought a Philips DVDR75 DVD Recorder (second hand) and I want to use it to record some homemade family VHS videos to DVD disc.

I have a scart cable for the process. I'm assuming that all I need to do is connect the VCR and DVD recorder with the scart cable via input and output connections and then hit the record button.

This is where I am totally confused! My VCR has scart sockets named AVI1 and AVI2 and my DVD recorder has scart sockets named Ext1 and Ext2.
Please can someone tell me which sockets I need to connect the scart cable to?

I haven't a clue which sockets are inputs or outputs

Once I have the connections sorted out is that it? I haven't tuned any TV channels to the DVD recorder as I only want it to record my family VHS videos ... so I'm hoping there's nothing else I have to do.

Any help will be greatly appreciated

Thanks!

AV2 is where you would connect somethimg like a Sky box and AV1 would be connected direct to TV.

Connect VCR AV1 to DVD AV2 and DVD AV1 to TV it may indicate near the AV slot if AV1 goes to TV.

When you want to record from the VCR you set the DVD recorder to record from AV2.
