    I currently have Sky digibox with 2 scarts, cable and aerial input, Sony VCR with 2 scarts, connected to scart (q-link type connection) on Sony TV with total of 4 scarts. Digibox connected to VCR and TV. RF is digibox to VCR to TV.
    Now have bought a Panasonic DMRE100 which is DVD rec with hard disc, and has 2 scarts.
    Can anyone pls advise the best connections, scart and rf, to incorporate the new box?
    Thanks in advance.

    Don't forget to stop using the tv button on the sky remote as that results in a recording of a black screen and sound.

    IE set the recorder to timer record switch tv to standby with the sky remote, or even use it to change to an analogue channel whilst recordeing and your recording will be scrap.
    This is because pressing the tv button makes the digibox assume it is no longer being watched or is only being used to record to vhs from and the picture changes from rgb to video. As you will have set the new recorder to record in rgb for best qualityyou will not have a picture to record.
