Please bear with me as I am new to the forum. I have had Sky+ for about 6 months and all working fine alongside my video recorder. However decided to upgrade to a DVD recorder and home cinema system (its a Goodmans gdvd300r). Anyway having connected it all I have found that when I press the Copy option on Sky+ box - the message appears as before to set your "video" recording (at which point I press record on the new dvd recorder) however this message then disappears and the Sky+ box doesn't start playback - just goes back and shows the programme marked as Copy. I've rung Sky up who advised to reconnect the dvd recorder in a different way but all that happened there is that I lost the sound! The only way I can record programmes from the Sky+ box is to start a manual play back and then press record. Therefore I cannot set more than one programme to copy. Someone said not all DVD recorders are compatible with Sky - is this a rumour or true? Any ideas how I might get it working as it did with a video recorder? 2nd question - the Sky+ reception through the DVD player isn't as sharp as if you are using Sky on its own. The dvd automatically tunes itself and I haven't found anyway of overriding this. Would using a better quality scart lead help?
