    Hi,

    I hope that you can talk me through the cable connections between my new gear so I will tell you what I have & perhaps you can list what I need to do in simple terms as I'm new to Plasma TV's etc.

    I am setting up the items below

    Samsung DVD recorder (DVD-R155)

    Samsung PS42Q97HDX Plasma TV

    Virgin V+ sat box

    I have connected my DVD & Virgin box, using Scart's, to my CRTV already as I'm waiting for my Plasma but have some questions about connecting to the TV when it comes.

    I connect the HDMi from the V box to the TV
    I connect the HDMi from the DVD recorder to the TV

    Do I still need to run a Scart from the V box out into the DVD in connection to be able to record from V box to the DVD ? or will the two HDMi's into the TV from the DVD & V box allow this.

    Sorry to list it all like that but unless I do I just get confused :)

    You help will be greatly appreciated

    I believe HDMI is pretty much a one way street so you'll need a separate SCART connection between the V+ box and the DVDR

    and no problem on the list, makes everything clear :)
