Hi guys, just for info I have been messing around with scart plugs over the weekend and have come up with a way of recording from Digi sat on my panny e55 and probably all the other pannys solely using RGB and the EPG program guide as the signal. The problem with the sky box is the (TV) output doesnt send the signal to the recorder to start recording but does output an RGB signal and the (VCR) scart does send the signal to the recorder but doesnt output in RGB, so I fixed it by slightly altering a standard scart cable. You need to get a scart plug from an old cable or a shop like maplin and a scart cable. 1, Take the scart plug and solder a wire about 8 onto pin 8, (if you look in the end of the scart they are all numbered) this pin 8 is the switch lead which sends a signal to the recorder to start recording when the EPG switches over. 2, Unscrew the end of the scart cable and find plug 8, cut the cable of the pin and solder this wire to the wire from scart socket you have just done in step 1. reassemble the plug. Now you just need to plug it in. The scart with the one wire needs to go into the VCR output of the Digi box and the other scart needs to go into the TV output with the other end in AV2 on the recorder. Leave the settings on the recorder as AV2 input = RGB, AV2 Connection = Normal & Ext Link = Ext Lnk1. Job done. I have been using it all weekend and it works a treat but, and theres always a but. The above works fine if the Digi box has been left switched on when the EPG turns the channel over but if I turn it off and let the EPG do it stuff, the Digi box / recorder turns on but I only get sound until I press the sky button on the remote and then i get picture as well. I have tried turning it off using the dig boxs power button and also with another remote I have but still the same, sound but no picture until the sky button is pressed, I never use the tv button on the remote so I dont know if this problem is with my Digi box or not as I have had it almost 7 years. I dont think it is anything to do with the cable I made as I have also got one of those sky phantom PVRs and it is the same with that. If anyone knows of a way to get round this please let me know.
