    If your Sky+ is connected via SCART (RGB) you could connect the new DVD player to the other SCART socket on your Sky+ box.

    If you want to connect each component to each other and then to the tv then connection orders could be
    (--> = a scart cable connected, scart out to scart in, going left to right)

    New Player --> DVD Recorder --> Sky+ --> TV

    or

    connecting only the new dvd player to the dvd recorder and leaving the sky+ on its own
    New Player --> DVD Recorder --> TV
    Sky+ --> TV

    or

    connecting new player to the sky+ box and leaving dvd recorder on it's own
    DVD Recorder --> TV
    New player --> Sky+ --> TV

    From your description of how the installer has wired it up, it seems he has connected the sky+ to the tv on one scart and connected the dvd recorder to the tv on another scart and then just put a scart between the dvd recorder and sky+, which i think won't have any use, becuase i would assume that it's connected from the scart in on the sky + to the scart in on the dvd player

    eg
    DVD Recorder --> TV
    New player --> Sky+ --> TV

    thanks again

    I'm not sure why the installer has done it the way he has - to be able to record sky tv to the dvd recorder then i would recommend the following setup:

    Sky+ --> DVD Recorder --> TV
    DVD Player --> TV

    But from your description it sounded like the sky+ is connected to the TV by scart and the DVD recorder is connected to the TV by a seperate scart and then then there is a third scart connecting the Sky+ and DVD recorder. If that is the case then connect your DVD player to one of the scarts going to the tv and connect the DVD Recorder and Sky+ to the other scart

    If you just want to connect them all to each other and to only one scart connection on the TV then connect as follows:

    DVD Player --> Sky+ --> DVD Recorder --> TV
