I've got the new TOSH RXDS34 recorder with the SATMON passthru trouble is my PANNY TV doesn't auto switch to SKY (checked with Panny and u can't do it with this model) so evrytime I turn my tv on I have to make sure TOSH is in standby with SATMON off first then when I press this button it switches TV over to SKY!! Great fun huh!

Well I've sort of got round it by using a scart switcher £15 from Argos (which I've used b4 and works fine).

At the mo I have now got scartbox into TV and then SKY+ and DVDR into two separate scarts and this now works fine. When I turn on my TV I just press SKY on remote and it turns over.

But what I want to know is that I want to add a VCR again (to tape onto DVD) and also to be able to record from SKY+ harddisk to DVD hard disk.

If I connect the VCR up to the other spare scart and then use the selector buttons for recording so for example A (DVDR) to B(SKY+) or A to C(VCR) will this work ok or do I have to have more scart leads going from one piece of equipment to another?
