I think I can pose this question as DVD recorders were reviewed in June Issue PCA. I have a defective VCR in that the Record Side no longer works. I intend to replace it with a DVD Recorder. My question is:If I connect the DVD to the TV via Scart lead, can I still connect the VCR to another Scart socket without there being a conflict between the two for tuning to the TV Channels etc. I wish to keep the VCR for playback of Grand-children's Videos?
The "What Video" Guide for connecting up various TV VCR Satellite equipment click here You may find that using a three way scart switching box will prove a better arrangement. Similar to this one click here This same box as illustrated here is in the Littlewoods Index catalogue at less than £9-50.
Should not be a problem, I have a VCR,DVD and PS2 all connected along with a freeview box. You just allocate a channel for each device, AV2 AV3 etc. with the channels on the remote. 2 scarts on the back and the 3 phonos on the front. Depends on your television set of course, and the premise that you will not need all in use at the same time.
