    DVD straight to AV1 [RGB] on your TV.
    Freeview to VCR in on the VCR and then TV out on the VCR to AV2 on your TV.

    I think that's the only way but I could be wrong.

    Would be better to connect freeview direct to Tv and VCR into the other scart on freeview.

    That way you could be watching a freeview channel and record one of the five terrestrial channels at the same time :)

    Also as Malabbey says connect DVD to AV1 as that accepts RGB (make sure you have switched the RGB output on in the DVD menu) and Freeview to AV2 which accepts an S/Video input (set Freeview to output S/Video if it has the option) !

    In my TV manual it doesn't say that either of the scart sockets are rgb, its about 5 years old. Anyway I've connected freeview to tv scart 1,dvd to scart 2, vcr to freeview and it all seems to work ok.
