I have purchased a Sony DVD as above and despite following the instructions full and a friend confirming he would have rigged up the same I still cannot get a connection.I am not the best at these sort of things yet pretty confident I have done everything right.Any ideas or advice appreciated.

According to the manual just take a scart lead from the VCR Scart socket on the sky plus box and put in the line3 decoder socket on the SONY DVD RDR -GX120 box and press input select to get L3 on the front panel display.

"Tried doing as you suggested and the DVD player would not come onto TV at all. Put scart back in and selected L3 on front panel and can hear DVD but no picture?"

There should be a seperate scart for output from the DVD recorder to the TV.
If you can hear sound and no picture you have the wrong settings for the video output or input
