Daewoo Combi 4150P]
Virgin V + box

Is it possible to keep my existngs connections and also be able to use the Daewoo
for playback as well ? I tried a scart to achieve this but the picture was green,
suggesting a clash somewhere.

My connections are HDMI lead Blu-Ray to TV

V+ scart to TV AV1

V+ scart to Daewoo for copying V+ recorded programs
to DVD. AV2

I dont know if this helps but the standard connections from a virgin or sky box is the tv scart on the box into the line input scart of the recorder , and the line output scart of the recorder to the tv , and set everything to RGB and widescreen

use 21 pin fully wired scarts too

then connect the vcr socket of the virgin or sky box direct to the tv , this is usually composite ( cvbs )

once this is working , you can connect in any hdmi and test again

Welcome to the forum.

The green screen indicates that somewhere something is outputting or expecting an input of S Video.

So you should be able to either select the TV input to receive S video or change the output from S Video to RGB.
So if you sort that issue out then yes you can keep your connections as they are.

However, normally the best route is to use the v+ TV output - which is RGB and feed that to the Daewoo and then feed from the Deawoo ... set to output RGB to an RGB capable scart on the TV.
No need for any other connection.

This depends on the Daewoo being capable of RGB pass-through, [ I don't know it well enough to know ] .. and using fully wired scarts throughout.

This connection - would mean that you can watch either the v+ or the Deawoo, in prime RGB quality and also record in RGB quality.

If you use the other connection on the V+ - it is lower quality composite and so you have to compromise with one of those operations above.
