    Welcome to the Forum :thumbsup:

    Ariel would go to the Sky box.
    Sky Box (TV) scart to scart 1 (usually RGB) on the TV.
    Sky Box (VCR) to the scart on the VCR.
    DVD scart to scart 2 on TV.

    Your problem with ghosting is usually interference caused by poorly shielded cables though!
    Anyhow try the above and let us know how you get on. :hiya:

    To add to Zone's post I would also add aerial cable from the Sky Box to the TV so that when making a recording off Sky you can also watch a terrestrial channel on the TV

    I think he needs the aerial lead to go to the VCR, then from there to the TV, so he can watch one thing while recording either from Sky or the aerial.
    :D
