    Since introducing a switchbox to my setup, I've lost the vcr presets and rescanning is only recognising ITV and Ch 4. Timer programming by Video plus numbers tapes the wrong channels and manual timer programming is impossible without the correct channels stored.

    My setup is:

    Sony TV - 1 SCART
    JVC VCR - 2 SCARTs
    DVD player - 1 SCART
    PACE digibox - 2 SCARTs
    Vivanco SBX95E Switchbox - 4 AV scart inputs - automatic/manual switching

    Configuration is:

    Aerial:-

    RF TV aerial to digibox
    RF from digibox to vcr RF IN
    RF from vcr RF OUT to TV

    SCART:-

    Digibox to vcr (AV1)
    Digibox to switchbox
    DVD to switchbox
    Switchbox to TV

    Viewing terrestrial and Sky is fine. Tuning this JVC VCR (model HR-A231EK) should be staightforward - there is an auto channel set function (frequency synthesized tuner) which should memorise all receivable channels in preset positions - but it's only picking up ITV and Ch 4.

    Any ideas ?
