Hi there I am having trouble connecting a DVD player to my skybox. My TV has only 1 scart. I tried connecting the Player with the VCR scart (on the Skybox, but it seems to not want to know. When I turn off the Skybox and I have turned on the player nothing is on screen. I have bought new scart cables just in case, still makes no difference. Any one help please? Please note the jargon RF etc is all confusing to me!!!
*When I turn off the Skybox and I have turned on the player nothing is on screen.*
How about if you don't turn off the Sky box?
In fact the VCR socket on Sky boxes are for both recording and replaying - that's why a video with only a SCART connection to a Sky box can play back through it - and the pictures end up on the screen!
However, for the playback to work, the SCART input on the Sky box must be fed from a SCART on the DVD player, otherwise there won't be a signal to tell the Sky box there's a player attached.
Añl that said - a SCART switch will also work fine.
