    Please excuse the possible daft question, but here goes... :confused:

    I have a Panny DMR-E85H DVD recorder connected to a Sky digital box via SCART (AV2) and to a home security camera via Composite (AV4).

    I can watch either on my Plasma (also connected to the E85 via Scart) and record either input. What I cannot do is watch Sky whilst the E85 records from the home security camera.

    I have read the manual several times, but either I am missing something obvious, or the E85 cannot do what I want it to do.

    Any help please ? :lease:

    Richard

    It can't do this, you will need a seperate feed from the sky box to the plasma to use whilst the recoreder is either recording or on in timer mode

    Use the Vcr output from the Sky digibox to your Plasma.

    Thanks.

    Looks like another £75 for a second terminal board on the plasma then - or constant plugging/unplugging :thumbsdow

    Regards
