    Hi All,

    Any advice appreciated on this one...

    Currently I have this setup:

    DVD player component out --> TV component in 1
    Sky Digibox RGB scart out --> TV RGB scart 1 (only 1 RGB scart, 2 non-RGB)

    The TV (Lg RE44) has 2 components in's.

    I am looking to add a DVD recorder with component out. If I do this I assume the hookup to be able to record from sky would be:
    Sky Digibox RGB scart out --> DVD Recorder scart in

    Would I then be able to hookup the recorder to the TV component 2? Would this also allow me to watch sky through the component 2 on the TV? (without having the recorder on all the time).

    I didn't think I would - if this is the case what's the best way to get everything rigged up for optimal use? I'd like to keep my current player as the main DVD viewing device and just use the recorder for recording.

    Thanks for reading...

    Cheers,
    Blasthand.

    OK,

    I'm thinking this is the correct setup:

    Existing DVD player component out --> TV component 1
    Sony Digibox RGB scart out --> DVD recorder RGB scart in
    DVD Recorder RGB scart out --> JS Tech converter scart in
    JSTech converter component out --> TV component 2

    If this is correct could someone confirm the following for me:

    I'll be able to watch sky without having the DVD recorder on all the time?
    Recording sky to DVD recorder will work OK?
    I could play DVD's back on the recorder using progressive scan? (just querying prog' scan works OK via the converter)

    Of course I may have got this completely wrong :D If so, any pointers greatly appreciated :thumbsup:

    Cheers,
    Blasthand.
