What I want to do is record, say, BBC2 whilst watching BBC Choice via my freeview box. Okay, I have the tiny Pace freeview box that only has one SCART out (no ariel loopthrough etc). The Pace box and the VCR each has a roof ariel connection to it (via a Y splitter) and the VCR sends this on to the TV. My VCR (Panasonic HD630) has two SCARTS so I was thinking I could simply loop the Pace box through this which would allow me to record in either analogue (using the VCRs tuner) or in digital (using the AV2 setting on the VCR so that it records what it is receiving from the Pace box via the SCART lead). The VCR has two settings for the SCART in (AV2) connection either DECODER or SAT. If you set it to DECODER then the Pace box takes precedence i.e. even if the VCR is switched on the TV shows whatever the Pace box is receiving. On the SAT setting the VCR takes precedence i.e. as soon as you switch the VCR on you see whatever channel it is set to and you cant see what the Pace box is receiving this is obviously no good if you want to watch the Pace box but record something using the VCRs analogues tuner. DECODER seemed to be the ideal setting if the Pace box is switched on then you watch that switch it off and you can watch something on the VCR all through the EXT 1 SCART input on the TV. So, whats the problem nothing I thought until I watched something via the Pace box last Sunday whilst trying to record something in analogue on the other side. The VCR was set to BBC2 so it should have taped BBC2 via its analogue tuner BUT when I played the tape back I found that it had actually recorded what the Pace box had been receiving at the time despite the VCRc channel being set to 2 and not to AV2. I thought it must have been a pilot error so I tried it again last night set the VCR to channel 2, press record and, again, it records what the Pace box is transmitting through the VCRs AV2 SCART regardless of what the VCRs channel is set to! Turn the Pace box off and its fine but thats no good if you want to watch the Pace whilst recording analogue. So, it doesnt seem as thought the SCART loopthrough on the VCR is much use which is a bit surprising as I presumed it would allow you to choose between recording analogue and digital. Anyone got any ideas or had any similar experiences? I guess I may have to either get a different freeview box with two SCARTS or get one of those two-way SCART video control boxes from Lektropacks. Thanks, Matt.
