Scart connections

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.
