I have bought a new panasonic HDD recorder dmr ex83. I want to copy some of my recordings from sky+ box. I have tried scart to scart connection and tried to copy but it is not working. Panasonic manual is too complex.
any help appreciated
Play a programme on the Sky receiver - no need to use the Copy option.
Power on the recorder.
Change the TV input to the one used for the recorder.
Set the recorder's input to the one used for the Sky receiver, as S N said.
You should see the programme that you set to play.
If you do see it, press Record.
If not, let us know.
Only one scart socket on a Sky+ box is RGB enabled (the one marked TV). So, if you have the one marked TV going into the TV, with RGB switched on, and you have the one marked VCR (which is composite only) going into the DVDR, you will notice a difference in pic quality between the TV and the DVDR. Namely, the TV will be better.
