I found that the only way I could record from the sky box was to use one of the auxiliary channels

The way i have mine setup is as follows,

scart to the lower socket on sky box,

from sky box to the ext 2 on dvd recorder,

scart from dvd recorder to ext 2 ( or similar),

on tv.once connected turn it all on,then go to your remote on tv and dvd and go through your av connections,

The usual way to connect via a scart lead is.

Sky box Scart/AV1 usually the top Scart connection to TV either AV1 or AV2

Sky box Scart/AV2 bottom scart connection to DVD recorder you will need to record from the AV2 channel.

DVD recorder Scart/AV1 to TV either AV1 or AV2

If you have recorded sound but no picture this could be due to faulty or loose scart lead.

1. Scart lead is loose. Check lead remove and reconnect at both ends.

2. Faulty scart lead. Try another scart lead.
