Connecting DVDr


Active Member
I have the Sony STRDA1200 amp and sky hd. The dvdr is a phillips 880 and has no hd connections, so its s-video for the picture and co-axial for the sound.

I wondered what is the best way to connect the dvd recorder to record sky: Directly from the sky box to dvdr or passing it through the receiver will enhance anything?

I would say your best cabling setup would be;

DVDR: RGB Scart to TV and Co-axial to Amp
SkyHD: HDMI to TV or Amp and Optical to Amp, then Scart to DVDR
Amp: HDMI to TV if SkyHD is connected to Amp via HDMI, not needed if not.
