    Can anybody help?

    I purchased a Panasonic DVD recorder/VHS machine on Saturday, model number DMR-ES30VEB.

    I also have a Sony 28 inch TV and a Pace Sky + box.

    My problem is I cannot watch Sky via scart when the Panasonic box is on (either DVD or video).

    There are scart cables between the Panasonic box and sky, Panasonic box and TV, and a final cable between sky and the TV (my apologies for not listing what sockets-just assume please it is correct).

    On the television, the AV1 socket goes to the sky box and AV2 the Panasonic box. If the Panasonic box is playing a DVD or a video, then that is visible on AV2, however, it is also visible on AV1. Now I would expect this on AV2 but not AV1!

    It won’t happen often but this means if I play a video or DVD for mum in her bedroom, I cannot watch sky on the main television. You now cannot even just flick over to sky checking for the beginning of a programme.

    There are 2 solutions, but there not ideal-watch sky through RF or remove the Panasonic to Sky scart cable (could no longer record using this option).


    Can anyone shed any light or work around?

    Yes, but which scart on the Sky box? Tv out or Vcr out?

    Panasonic vcr/DVD av1 (TV) connected to TV av2
    Panasonic vcr av2 connected to SKY+ vcr scart
    sky+ TV scart connected to TV av1

    as per instructions.

    I was in a rush earlier and foolishly thought I'd people would accept my word that the connections will correct :)

    You should connect as follows:

    Sky+ TV Out >>>> AV2 on the DVDR and then AV1 >>>> TV AV1
