I know this is not a computer related question but I thought someone out there might know the answer.If I connect my Tv to my BT Vision box using a HTMI lead would I still have to use the scart leads.Would the HTMI lead replace the scart leads I use at present.My Tv is HD ready and has all the relevant sockets.

Yes. HDMI replaces scart but you can use both if you wish. The key is to tell the TV to use the HDMI (usually through the AV input selector) and make sure the output box is configured ( if needed) to output through the HDMI. The menu should help you there.

Try this TV connection wizard found by Stuartli. click here

I would say that unless all your kit has been set up to "speak" to each other you will need two connections one each from the DVD recorder and the Vision box.
