I have a total spaghetti of wires behind my telly. I am on Virgin Cable so I have a cable box connected to my TV via scart-1 I also have a digibox which of course gets all the free digital channels, this is connected to the TV via scart-2, this allows me to watch one channel while recording another. All this is connected through my HD recorder. I could of course buy a new HD recorder with twin tuners but that would cost money and the recorder I have is old but perfectly good. I think I have covered all the bases come the change over, so hopefully no interruption to my televisual delights.

I'm not sure what I would award from having three devices that can play DVDs attached to the same TV.
