I've not posted for a while and for some strange reason i've had to re-reg again because it didn't recognise my username etc,anyway back to my problem..... I got a goodmans 301r dvd recorder today and connected it to my tv and sky decoder as follows (i've also tried loads of other variations): DVD RECORDER 'scart in' socket connected to SKY DECODER 'vcr scart' socket DVD RECORDER 'scart out' socket connected to TV 'av1' socket SKY DECODER 'tv scart' socket connected to TV 'av2' socket. When i press the 'source' on the dvd remote and select 'scart' so i can record directly from Sky via scart connection the picture appears to be kind of distorted and the colours aren't right, its as if its not tuned in correctly.Sky looks perfect if i just watch it through the tv. i've tried using scart leads but it hasn't made any difference. please help me sort out my new toy thankyou for any help.
