    Hi guys, i'm trying to connect my pace sky+ box to my sony vcr so I can record some saved programmes to video. I've tried connecting with a scart cable, but all I get is a picture, no sound. TV is a 21" sony (KV-21CT1).

    I have a normal panasonic sky box connected to the same video downstairs on a sony 29" tv and it works fine.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Check the scart cable is firmly seated, slightly crooked can mean the pins carrying audio are not connecting. Make sure you have selected the correct AV input on the VCR as well, also test both scart sockets on the SKY+.

    Make sure the scart is not just RGB!

    if you press the tv/vcr button on your vcr you will still not here the sound but it will be recorded or connect the sky+ vcr scart to L2 or L3 scart on the vcr and vcr L1 to 2nd scart on tv and will then work like on the panasonic box hope this helps this is because pace configure thescart on the pace sky+ v2 different this make sony and grundig vcr not work the same.
