Hi people Ive just bought a Panasonic E55 dvd recorder and after fiddling about with the connections, Im getting more and more confused (and frustrated). Ill try and make this easy to digest (and follow) The equipment: - 1 Sony TV [1 scart] - 1 Sony VCR [2 scarts Line 1 (Euro AV); Line 2] - 1 Sony Digital Box [2 Scarts TV; VCR] - 1 Panasonic DVD Recorder [2 Scarts AV1 (TV); AV2 (Decoder/EXT)] My current Setup: Scart leads Digital box (TV) -> (AV2) DVDR (AV1) -> TV Digital box (VCR) -> (Line 1) VCR Coaxial leads Arial -> Digital Box -> DVDR -> TV The Problem: Now Im not too concerned about being unable to record on the VCR but I do want to play tapes from it. The main headache at the moment is I cant seem to record one program and watch another at the SAME time. Could anyone suggest a way of solving this? Does it require a different setup arrangement or is there another way (switching between modes on the DVDR for example)? Id really appreciate your help. Ive spent hours playing about with the thing now I want to unleash the full glory of this machine! Thanks in advance. Alex Edit: Just a note - before introducing the DVDR, I was able to record one program on my VCR whilst watching another on my digital box.
