This is troubling me somewhat, I have a TV, Sky+ box and DVDR connected via SCARTS. SKY+ TV OUT to AV1 on TV VCR OUT to EXT/DECODER IN on DVDR DVDR TV OUT to AV2 on TV EXT/DECODER IN to VCR OUT on SKY+ The problem is quite simple to describe, as soon as I powerup the DVDR, AV1 on the TV dies If I break the connection VCR OUT to EXT/DECODER IN on DVDR then everything works fine, I can flick between Sky on Av1 and DVD on AV2 on my TV but as soon as the two are connected the problem occurs. The output to AV1 will then not return for an intermittent amount of time after the DVD has been powered down, as you can imagine this is driving me nuts. At first I thought it was the TV but now I know it does not occur when the SKY+ to DVDR connection is severed I'm thinking it's something to do with the SKY+ box. The simple solution is to leave the two units unconnected but then when I want to dump something from hdd to dvd I have to drag everything out to plug the scart back in, and remake the coonnection not ideal really. Any ideas any one. My TV is a Thomson 32WM403 Sky+ is an Amstrad DRX180 DVDR is an H&B DRX-430. I look forward to your help. Cheers, Phil.
