    I need some advice on setting up my equipment. I have this...

    TV (2 scarts, 1 front s-video)

    Sky (2 scarts)

    DVD player (1 scart, 1 s-video)

    DVD Recorder (2 Scarts, 1 s-video)

    I have to connect the DVD recorder and DVD player Scart to Scart so I can copy from DVD-RAM to DVD-R (the player is RAM compatiable). Does anyone know how all this can be connected? I don't really want to have to use the front S-Video on the TV.

    Well for your basic recording the obvious set-up is:

    Sky+ TV OUT > DVD RECORDER AV2 and then AV1 > TV SCART IN
    (this will allow you to make recordings in RGB - the best connection type possible).

    To enable you to play DVD-RAMs on your DVD player and record on DVD-R on your DVD Recorder you would also want to output in RGB from the DVD player to AV2 input on the DVD Recorder. Here I would suggest an ad hoc arrangement - hook it up when you have stuff to copy (and unplug Sky until your done). If this is unacceptable you may want to look at getting a Scart switcher - take a look at a store like www.keene.co.uk - they sold a few good quality ones last time I looked. The switcher is also a good idea if you want to play DVDs on your DVD player (as opposed to your recorder) and your TV only has one RGB capable socket.
