Is your DVD a player or recorder?
If it's a recorder, check that the scart from Sky is going to the input scart of the recorder.
If it's a player, I think you're out of luck! As far as I'm aware the scart of a DVD player is output only - you can't use it as a throughput!

Hope this helps.

That's your problem - I don't think you can pass through via a player - please correct me if I'm wrong!!!

My old Sony DVD player had scart pass through for RGB. It had 2 scarts (one out,and one in/out). It worked fine. Not aware of any DVD players however that can take a scart RGB in and output to component (this would require transcoding of the signal, rather than simply pass through).

Cheapo DVD players with one scart are a nonstarter though.
