I believe HUMAX look at these threads and would like their comment on this as well as you folks. I have just bought a F2-FoxT, but this will apply to any other Freeview box I assume, on the basis that it will switch on my VCR when in syncro record mode, record the program and then switch both off. I find that it will only do this if they are connected via the TV output scart and not the VCR output scart. Since I need the usual connection of TV out to TV and VCR out to VCR this is a pain as I have to programme both VCR and ST box. Why do HUMAX, and all others I assume, not send the signal to switch the attached machines via both scarts?
