The intention is to run a PW6 using a DVD recorder as a tuner and need to cater for a DVD player and an ntl set top box. Both the DVD player and the ntl box are currently transmitting their signals via SCART as that is either the best or only option. I would like the DVD recorder to connect via component if at all possible. My Q's are: 1. Best method of connecting this lot up given that each input board is ~£150. 2. Recommendations for a DVD recorder to fulfil the role set out above. 3. Your opininons if you can see a better or more cost effective way of acheiving the same objective or if I'm missing something out. I really don't want to use the ntl box for all TV signals unless I have to. Also, I am currently squeezing the best functionality out of the ntl box by using a SCART cable with the overide signal pin disconnected (? pin 8) so ntl goes to other TV's in the house without it affecting the main TV viewing. We would like to keep this arrangement if possible. The signal is transmitted via the 2nd RF socket on the ntl box. I'm not sure if this will affect the above desired arrangement. Currently our VCR piggybacks a SCART connecter into the ntl then into a single SCART in the TV, with the DVD taking up the other (as it will accept RGB via SCART). This situation works well for us, but it looks like the recording hardware is about to take on a bigger role in the scheme of things and that may throw a spanner in the works. I hope this makes sense.
