    I have the following:

    http://www.hb-direct.com/FR/P_40.html - Divx/amp + speakers

    SONY VTX-D800U
    freeview digital set-top box TV/VCR scart 3.5mm combined analogue/digital output

    Hitachi 28LD5200 LCD TV

    And I was thinking about these connections:

    Pureav Audio Cable Y 2.1m 3.5mm to phono - Freeview box to Divx/amp for sound (as divx/amp has no optical in)

    Belkin PureAV Blue Series Scart Video Cable 0.9m - Freeview box to TV

    OFC scart - Freeview to VCR

    Belkin Silver Series PureAV Component Video Cable 1.2m - Divx/amp to TV

    Belkin PureAV Blue Series Aerial Antenna Cable Male to Male - RF source to Freeview

    Now would I need to loop RF from Freeview through my VCR or TV? Would terrestial TV channels (BBC1 etc) still be shown through the Freeview box to VCR/TV etc through SCART?

    Is there a better way I can make use of the sound via the digital out on the sony freeview box using this setup?

    And finally, from the overview that I have explained, am I missing any connections out/too many?

    I know you guys cover this a lot - but I appreciate your top notch knowledge!!
