      The point about the 21 pins on SCART leads is that cheaper ones often don't have the full 21 core wire and therefore only connect some of the functions. Something worth checking. Usually you can unscrew the end of the SCART lead and gently prise the body open and see if al the connections are there. It will be obvious with either lots of wires or relatively few.

      But check the output of the Sky box VCR SCART by connecting it to the TV and see if it works OK (use the SCART you current watch TV through).

      I doubt its the scart cable. Theres sound so the audio is wired for two way, the video will be as well.

      Re: sky + only copies sound to wharefdale dvd recorder

      thanks all you guys. i went from tv out scart on my sky box to input/output on the wharefedale, and then out of that to av1 in the tv........ and it works fine. The picture quality has even improved.
      Now when i select scart input on the wharefedale i can watch/record sky., or drop stuff from the sky hard drive into the hard drive of the wharefedale or dvd burner.
      BUT i can only put programmes which are up to 1 hour on disc. This is because you can't lower the quality of the recording on the sky + box.......so in order to copy a film it has to be across 2 discs....
      so thanks all again, now i have about 30 episodes of doctor who to copy.

      kids !!!
