    Hi
    Just purchased a Panasonic E55, and need some advice on setup.

    We recently decorated, so had to unplug all the TV stuff (bad move!) - unfortunately we are all stuck at how to set it back up.

    Its really complicated but here goes -

    Have an Argos scart box(splitter?)

    32inch WS TV with 2 scart inputs one RGB

    Panasonic sky satellite digibox

    Sony 1080 receiver

    Xbox

    PS2

    E55 DVD recorder

    Have unplugged the VCR as didn't want to complicate matters further.

    I spent approx 3 hours last night trying different combinations, but couldn't manage to set everything up as it was previously (obviously the E55 being new is the only different part of setup).

    Have searched these forums for help but no luck as yet

    Help appreciated!

    OK try this.

    Attach the splitter to the TV's RGB input (AV1 usually)

    Connect the skybox to the E55 Recorder using AV2 on the back of the recorder.
    Attach the AV1 ouput of the the Recorder to a input on the splitter. To record Sky select AV2 on the recorder and the right input on the splitter. The sky transmission will appear on the TV.

    Attach the X Box and PS2 to the splitter using scart leads. To select each one, choose the right input on the splitter.

    The 1080 reciever will accept digital input from the E55 via a optical digital/phono cable. I don't know what the consoles have.

    hi
    Thanks for the advice
    Got it working eventually!

    Only thing is I needed the bottom scart on the digibox for my new digisender transmitter - I tried it in every other place, but that is the only place it worked.

    Because of that I am not using the AV2 connection between my E55 and the digibox (bottom scart occupied by transmitter scart as stated above).

    Not sure if this is going to be a problem?
    So far everything appears to be working so fingers crossed!

    Does the skybox have two scarts? It should be attached to AV2 of the recorder using the scart output that would have gone to the TV.

    The second scart (if it has one) is normally used for a VCR. Could the digisender be attached to this?
