    Sorry if this is going over old ground, but I still haven't figured out the connections to record from VCR to DVD. I have tried every combination I can think of via scarts, and have also tried a scart from the VCR to the 3 phono lead input on the front panel of the Panny (this appears to be an AV3 input). The best I have managed is to record sound only, but most combinations just record a blank screen - including the link via the scart to 3 phono lead.

    I can't understand why this combination doesn't work:
    VCR scart to Panny scart
    Panny scart to TV scart
    or as above with:
    VCR scart to TV scart.
    I have tried different scart sockets on the TV (there are 3), but no luck.

    Any advice would be appreciated!

    :confused:

    1. Connect a SCART lead from the VCR's SCART Out socket to the E85's AV2 input socket. This is the bottom SCART socket on the back of the machine.

    2. Use Input Select on the E85 to select AV2.

    3. On the E85, go into Functions - Setup - Connection - AV2 Settings and make sure that the AV2 Input option is set to "Video".

    Thanks Jesmat... you're a star! I've spent hours trying to sort it. I'd forgotten about changing the settings to video. Works fine now. :thumbsup:
