I'd be really grateful for some help on this one. I've just bought a Panasonic DMR E55 DVD recorder. I just cannot make sense out of the cabling diagrams. The only way I can get it to record from my Sony digi box is for the TV to be switched on. So far I haven't been able to record from my VCR. I have the following components and am using scart leads: TV - Panasonic TX-28PK2 with AV1 and AV2 scarts Sony Freeview box with TV and VCR scarts Panasonic VCR NVHD 625 with AV1 (TV) and AV2 (Decoder/Ext) scarts Panasonic DMR E55EB with AV1 (TV) and AV2 (Decoder/Ext) scarts I'm probably being thick but I've tried (I think!) every possible combination of connection. The scart leads are all fully wired. Thanks in advance for any help.
