    You can get a good box from argos for about a tenner.It is easy to set up and the switching is easy. You only need to put one scart from the box to the tv everything else plugs into the box . You then select what you want to watch F/view , vcr or dvd(rgb is supported). Or you can record freeview to vcr or dvd to vcr. There are also phono out puts for video and audio
