    You will need a second scart from the Digibox to the VCR so that it can record from satellite. Don't bother with a particularly expensive one as iy will only be a composite signal. The VCR should have audio outputs which can be taken to a pair of inputs on the amp to replay tapes through the system.

    Hi IanJ ...10x for your quick reply...appreciated

    The VCR has 4 Phono jacks ( 2 In / 2 Out)

    So the final setup should be :

    DVD - > TV RGB THOR SCART
    DVD - > AV Digital Coax

    SAT - > TV RGB THOR SCART
    SAT - > VCR Normal SCART
    SAT - > AV Digital Coax

    VCR - > TV SCART
    VCR - > AV pair phono leads
    Cable TV Rf In/RF Out

    OK i need some additional help. Here is a pic of a part of the setup. I leave out the DVD to TV and the VCR to TV connection since these are quite simple scart to scart connection.

    I have another TV in another room. I would like to supply this TV with CABLE and SAT via RF socket on SAT. It seems that I will need to split the RF cable at some point. Any ideas ?
