    Hello, have you considered that your 3 way scart adaptor is broken , what happens if you plug directly in to AV2

    Out of interest on a lot of TV sets only AV1 is an RGB input offering better picture quality, have you considered plugging your DVD scart into the sky box rather than the T.V to free up another scart lead?

    Do you have a composite video In on the TV? If you do then you could use that for the PS2 and the AV2 for the VCR - No scart socket required ... just an idea

    I know it's a bit of messing about, but have You tried shutting down Your TV and plugging in all Your devices seperatley to AV1. Then doing the same with AV2.

    Purely to elliminate the ports on the TV.

    See some TVs won't switch AV cons unless they are turned off.. And then turned back on again..

    It may have nothing to do with the "splitter". It might just be the TV being subborn..

    Just out of interest, What Model TV, Cable/Sat/Freeview/DVD/Games Console set-up do You Have and what cables are You using. Also what is the name/model of the "splitter" You are using?...
