HDML vs SCART


john bunyan

Likes # 0

I have a Sony TV with 2 SCART inputs and one HDMI. My Panasonic DVD recorder has one SCART and one HDMI outputs. When the SCART is connected and I select Timer/ EPG or Navigator (Recoded shows) on the Recorder, the SCART / TV auto detects to AV1 and I can select a show to record or watch without having to manually select AV1 on the TV. If I link the two by HDMI, the auto detect feature does not work but if I manually select AV4 on the TV I can do as above. Is there a way of ensuring the HDMI /TV auto detects input from the DVD recorder?

If your Sony TV has the SMARTLINK feature and if your Panasonic DVD recored has a similar program they should communicate with one another via the HDMI cable. You will need to look through the instruction manual.

I have a Samsung TV and a Sony DVD/HD recorder that have no problems communicating with each other.
