      Three variations on a theme it seems?

      Hi

      Have used various "set up advisers" and searched generally but have seen three different set up scenarios to connect LCD Widescreen, Sky Plus digibox, DVD R and VCR. Can someone advise me as to the correct or best configuration (I havenít included my current coax connections but would be grateful if you could advise on this also)

      My original set up:
      TV scart on digibox to AV2 on DVD R
      VCR scart on digibox to VCR
      AV1 scart on DVD R to TV

      Set up advisor recommended:
      TV scart on digibox to TV
      VCR scart on digibox to AV2 on DVD R
      VCR to second scart on TV

      Someone else on this forum advised:
      TV scart on digibox to AV2 on DVD R
      AV1 scart on DVD R to TV
      VCR to second scart on TV
      I know itís not an exact science but this is ridiculous.

      Many thanks for your time and advice.

      Longshanks

      If you only use the VCR for playback of existing recordings then the third option in your post is the most simple and best in my opinion.

      You can record to the hard disc in the Sky+ box and anything you want to archive can be transferred to the DVD R via scart later.
