    Hi All,

    I have a very old television that only has one input, an aerial socket. I also have a DVD player with two outputs, scart and RGB.

    Any ideas how I can get the DVD player to play through the old TV?

    Any comments suggestions appreciated.

    CHEERS

    You need to go Scart to VCR then use the aerial socet out to the TV.

    Thats only way I think you can do it m8.

    You can try it. However, I suspect that you may encounter Macrovision (copy protection) artefacts. It depends on the VCR.
