Cor blimey governor, what a pickle - can anyone help me with a connection jungle?? Here's what I have, and below that is what I would like: Here are my 'appliances' and their available scart connections: Sky+ has -> VCR Scart + TV Scart VCR has -> Scart in only + Scart in/out DVD Player has -> Scart out TV has 2 scart sockets, one autoswitches the TV to AV channel on playing video etc, dont think the other one does (its an old telly) and as far as I can tell one is RGB compatible Will use RF/Channel 6 on Sky as well for kiddywinks but thats really immaterial to this question. My needs are as follows: Want to archive Sky+ recordings onto VCR via Scart Want to record Sky programmes onto VCR via Scart (obviously only one programme at a time) Want to play DVDs on TV via Scart Want to play VCR on TV via Scart Want to watch Sky+ on TV via Scart My VCR manual says I have to have RF connected as well as Scart is this correct? It also says that to connect the Sky box, VCR and TV together I need a chain of three scarts between everything, not just one out of the Sky, into the video then another out of the video into the TV which seems a bit weird. Can anyone assist me with the easiest way to connect all this without creating a gaggle of cables? Am I asking too much or do I need a switch box or something - trying to avoid this as not 'wife-approved!! Any assistance greatly appreicated.
