Interference between VCR and TV


Standard Member
My standard definition TV is connected to a combi VRC-DVD player (Panasonic NV-VP30EB).
The RF signal from the antenna goes directly to the VRC, which is then connected to the TV via the another RF cable plus SCART.

The signal quality from the TV (whether the the VCR is on or off) is very poor with this type of connection. However if i by-pass the VCR and i connect the TV directly ot the antenna socket then quality is perfect. Also if I watch TV through the VCR receiver quality is good.

Especially BBC1 and BBC2 are very bad in quality signal.

VHS/DVD play fine.

I followed the VCR instructions re reducing interference / changing RF-channel but nothing changed.
I tried both SCART ports on the TV without success.

Anybody's got some other idea of what could be the problem?
