Need some help regarding the pioneer 520 dvd recorder and my sony freeview VTX-D800U. I have the 2 boxes connected together by scart and i am trying to use the smartlink facility (this used to work fine with my sony freeview connected to an old panasonic vcr). If i turn on the smartlink switching on the pioneer timer then switch the unit off it switches back on immediatley and starts recording. If i do the same again but first turn off the tv and freeview box then the 520 it stays off until the sony freeview box switches on (through its built in timer)then starts to record immediatly. Is any one using the pioneer 520 smartlink facility, and do they have the same probs, i am wondering if my scart lead is faulty but dont want to go spend £40 on another if this is a common fault, after speaking to pioneer they tell me the 520 is smartlink triggered on pins 8-9 on the scart so i am considering if one of these might be shorting. Any help appreciated.
