wak2003 I don't want to hijack your thread but I'm following this with interest because my question is similar to yours. I would like to know the correct way to connect digibox, DVD recorder and TV. All items have 2 scart sockets. I have tried various combinations, with different results. Thanks.
Thanks Brynit, Can you give the rationale for your answer? I have the Digibox before the VCR with SCART connections to TV. Hence my question re Dr. Marcus' recommendation. By rf I mean terrestial analogue signal.
Digi box RF 1 out off to RF in on the VCR or DVD recorder
VCR or DVD RF out to TV
RF 2 out from digi box allows you to connect an ariel lead to another room. Using a sky TV link kit will allow you to switch the sky channels over you will need to change a setting in system services for this to work.
Digi box (TV scart) ext 1 to TV scart ext 1
Digi box (VCR scart) ext 2 to VCR or DVD recorder scart ext 2
VCR or DVD ext 1 to TV scart ext 2
To record from digi box you can record from ext 2
Switching the digi box on will usually swich the TV to ext 1
You may need to use AV button to change TV to ext 2 to watch DVD
