    Hello Guys

    a couple of months ago Gavin gave me a hand with connections between my SatReceiver, DVD-R and TV. Now I have changed TV with a Panasonic TX-32LXD60 with has Freeview and HDMI capabilities. Can you advise me what is the most sensible and quality connection between the three of them?
    Here is a pic of the backs:

    The Fortec receiver could also do Freeview - but the one in the Tv works great, so I will only use the Fortec for Satellite reception (italian channels digital satellite).

    Any advise is very welcome
    Best wishes

    Does the satellite receiver have RGB out?

    Firstly - Satellite input. Plug the feed into socket No 2.

    Secondly - UHF Daisy chain - Connect terrestrial aerial downlead into Socket no 1. You will need a male/female coax flylead as a link cable.[ Out of and back into the Fortec] Put female in Socket 5 and male end in socket 3.

    You will need another male/female coax flylead to connect Socket 7 to socket 10 on the Panasonic.

    ...and a third male / female coax flylead to connect Pansonic socket 9 to the Aerial input on the PanasonicTV.

    Thirdly - Scart. Use one scart to connect socket 8 to socket 13.

    The component output connections on DVDR are not numbered but connect a triple phono lead from red to 20 on TV, from Blue to 19 on TV , and from green to 18 on TV.

    The Audio Out connections on the DVDR are also not numbered but connect a twin phono lead from White out to 22 on the TV and from Red out to 21 on the TV.

    As yet you have no use for HDMI connection.

    Good Luck.

    Gavin

    Apologies Franco

    I adapted this from the original scheme assuming that the only changes necessary were to the TV connections.
    Hopefully below is a corrected version.

    Firstly - Satellite input. Plug the feed into socket No 2.

    Secondly - UHF Daisy chain - Connect terrestrial aerial downlead into Socket no 1. You will need a male/female coax flylead as a link cable.[ Out of and back into the Fortec] Put female in Socket 5 and male end in socket 3.

    You will need another male/female coax flylead to connect Socket 7 to socket 16 on the Panasonic EH50.

    ...and a third male / female coax flylead to connect Pansonic socket 17 to the Aerial input on the PanasonicTV. { I'm unclear if that is 27 ? }

    Thirdly - Scart. Use one scart to connect socket 8 to socket 13.

    Another fully wired scart from 15 to Scart 24 or 25 on the TV. [ I cannot say which would be best as Panasonic have not released an electronic version of the manual for your TV yet.}

    You could use a scart from 4 on Fortec to 24 [ or 25 ] on TV to give you a direct connection if deemed necessary.

    The component output connections on DVDR are not numbered but connect a triple phono lead from red to 20 on TV, from Blue to 19 on TV , and from green to 18 on TV.

    The Audio Out connections on the DVDR are also not numbered but connect a twin phono lead from White out to 22 on the TV and from Red out to 21 on the TV.

    As yet you have no use for HDMI connection.
