    Im getting a DVD recorder delivered this afternoon. It has two SCART sockets and needs a fully wired SCART lead to properly interface with my TV - you can control it through a TV menu.

    I also have a Pace Twin and a VCR. The Pace twin is preferred by my wife so I can't loose operation of that.

    The TV (Loewe Xelos SL) only has one RGB enabled SCART plus a second offering s-video and composite.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on how to connect this all up? I am concerned if the Pace box has a RGB/full scart passthrough or not.

    I was thinking of:

    DVD recorder <-> (archive SCART ) Pace (RGB SCART) <-> RGB TV
    Pace (archive SCART) <-> DVD recorder <-> VCR <-> composite TV

    The reason for the second is two fold:
    1. The TV has an inbuilt harddisc recorder so I can archive direct to VCR - (for the inlaws)
    2. Sharing RGB (Pace) and composite (VCR) on the same SCART input is problematical.

    Thanks

    I think that I have sussed it. Not 100% ideal.

    Pace (RGB Scart) -> (RGB Scart) DVD recorder (RGB Scart) <-> TV (RGB Scart)

    and

    Pace (Archive SCART/composite) -> (composite) VCR (composite) <-> TV (composite SCART)

    Currently my VCR is out of the loop (no power sockets left).

    I think that this will also allow me to archive old VCR tapes to DVD. Ther only thing that I will not beable to do is to watch Pace box whilst archiving from TV harddisc to DVD.
