    hello all old tv has 3 scarts fed as follows
    sc1=satellite box
    sc2 =dvd recorder
    sc3=sky digibox

    this all works fine,but new lcd tv only has 2 scarts so making things akward.

    i believe there is a way off linking sattellite box to digibox to dvd recorder using scart leads and feeding a single scart to the rgb scart of tv.

    but i am not sure of how to connect this all up, or if there is a simpler way.

    to record onto dvd at present i use recorder set to ch1-5 for terestial recordings.
    sc setting for sky sc2 for satelite.

    do not really want one of those multiple scart boxes /

    new tv will be 32" technovision lcd.
    kit i wish to connect is
    pace sky digibox

    tatung dvd recorder

    humax 5400 satelite reciever

    It would REALLY help if you told us exactly what you have, Make model etc. Can the DVD player do Component and better still Progressive.

    Sky via Scart (Quality) set to output RGB not PAL and 16:9 not 4:3.
    DVD via component if your TV has it and progressive even better.
    Humax if your other SCART on the TV is RGB then make sure it outputs RGB.
