    Previously, when i use to power on my Sony VHS recorder or Sony DVD player, my TV use to automatically switch to AV2. Currently, I have a Virgin digital box which also when switched on, the TV automatically switches to the AV1.

    I replaced the VHS recorder and DVD player with athe HXD 870 and it is connected via scart to a Sony LCD with Smartlink capable on scart AV2.

    When i switch the HXD 870, I have to manually the TV channel to AV2 input. Does not the HXD870 have the auto switch on function like the above?

    Thanks

    It should switch.

    What your TV is reacting to is the present of 6v or 12v on PIN 8 of the SCART cable. It sees this an indication that a signal is present and switches your receiver to that SCART connection.

    Look in your HXD-870 handbook at page 25 under section headed "To operate the TV/DVD button (for SCART connections only)" I think this is the answer you are searching.

    I hope my post has been of use :)
