    i've got a sony 32fx65.a panasonic video,and a pace sky(digital) box connected as follows:-
    video to tv scart to av2
    pace to video scart (marked video scart on pace box)
    pace box to tv scart to av3
    the problem is i'm getting interferance when recording either sky or terrestial tv.
    if i turn the sky box off and record terrestrial tv then there is no problem?
    all the leads are ok,any ideas??

    Poss. clashing RF output from the units.
    Easiest thing to do is tune the vcr 'away' and see if the interference stops.
    AS they are both scarted up you shouldn't have any problems.
    Just be sure that where you put the VCR RF is not ontop of a normal terrestrial signal.
    Modern panasonics are done by holding in the menu button for a few secs to get the RF test bar up. Move and store.

    I had a problem with interference from a Cable box and found that the problem was solved buy throwing out the cheap arial patch lead that joined the video to the TV and making my own using good quality arial plugs and sockets and satelite cable. (cost about £2.50 total) Use the same from the wall to the video if possible. :cool:
