I would like to download recorded programmes from my Sky+ box to my Sony Vaio. I have software like 'click to DVD' etc so expect I can use that but I cannot connect the two systems. My Vaio has a 'S video' and Ilink input but the sky box ouptut is from a Scart socket. Is there an adaptor I can purchase with a Scart at one end and either a Svideo or Ilink on the other? Or can someone suggest another way fo doi his.
Yes I do, the sky box has 3 o/p HDMI, TV and VCR. I use HDMI for my TV and TV out is connected to my DVD Recorder using the rgb o/p of the scart connection, if I want to download to my recorder I set it to the apropriate input and away we go, I can either watch it whilst it is downloading or watch a non sky channel, the vcr o/p is'nt all that good the TV out in rgb nearly as good as dvd quality, trouble is HD is downgraded but is still pretty good.
To answer some of the posts - My Vaio is a desktop PCV-V model and does have a SVideo input. It also has a TV tuner/recorder with a normal aerial input. I connected the sky+ box to the PC using a normal aerial cable and 'copied' the item using the 'copy' function of the sky+ box and the GIGA pocket software loaded on the PC. I then used the 'click to DVD' software to copy to DVD and then erased from the PC and sky+ HD's.
So, in all, a successful outcome.
Thanks again for your time and advice.
