I have just purchased a Sony DAVS 550 and new VCR ,I but I am having problems finding a solution to my connection problems explained in laymans terms.Here's what I have; Sony KV-29F1U TV (two scarts) Sony SLV-SE830 VCR(two scart) Telewest Pace cable TV box Sony DAVS 550 compact AV system I undestand the DAVS 550 doesn't have any scart connections and have managed to work out(through reading various postings) that a S-video to Scart cable connected to the TV (I think connection 2 on my TV accepts S-Video and I know there is an S-Video on the front ). What I want to do is connect these up and be able to watch DVD's, TV and VCR through the DAVS550's . I obviously want reasonable quality sound and vision but if this has to suffer slightly for the sake of simplicity ie. Using S-Video rather than component(whatever that means ??) then that would be OK. Please be aware your dealing with someone who really doesn't know his "rgb from his elbow",after 18 months of trying I still can't record from cable ......well not sound and picture at the same time anyway ! Any help would be greatly appreciated.
