I have cross posted this to other forums I trust FE will not mind this once
Connecting multiple 'boxes' and scart leads
I have had Digi box/VCR/DVD player connected to TV via a Phillips elctronic Scart switch. This item detects which unit is active and switches out others.[Very effective stops all the cross feeding - a tenner in ASDA] The digi box with its 2 SCARTS I cross connected to VCR as was the RF and connected to the switch box as one item. The DVD player was connected as a single item. This meant that VCR could record from its own resources or digibox indpentantly of TV and of course the DVD.
I have today outed the DVD player in favour of a DVD/HDD recorder and have spent a busy afternoon doing the 'knitting.'
I have cross connected the DVD-recorder and digi box and to the switch and now the VCR is independant via scart but sans RF.
All work sell Digi/DVD/VCR. What does not happen is the VCR talking to TV for setting up recordings. So before I undo the knitting and start again - any thoughts please would be welcome.
