    :lease: Heeeeeelp! I'm proud owner of the fab archos av440. as an mp3 player - great. recording direct from dvd player - great. can i get a signal from my sky box or sony vcr? er, no i can't. like a lot of people this was my main reason for choosing this over the host of pocket video PLAYERS. can anyone help? i've tried every scart socket on the tv [sony], vcr [sony] and digibox [pace/sky] and the red, white and yellow sockets on the front of tv [though i understand these are probably only input sockets]. gutted of london, greg

    :uk: I have the same problem, although I can get audio but no video. I have a Pace box.

    Has anyone out there experienced a similar problem or can anyone provide any advice?

    I think there scart adapters do not work very well so bought a new one it has s-vhs,composite,left and right audio and the signal is switchable in/out.Works fine and only cost £5.99 from my local TV shop.
    Good Luck

    Purchased the scart to s-vhs, composite as sgruniss suggested and it works like a treat.

    Thanks for that. The only thing is, is that it cost me £10.00!!

    Looking forward to many hours of happy recording!
