    Hi,

    I have the following connections on my Toshiba (outstanding machine, by the way):
    Aerial --> Tosh --> TV
    Tosh AV1 Scart --> TV
    VCR --> Tosh AV2 Scart

    My question is if I could also route the aerial through the VCR, so that I can record two shows at the same time (one with the Tosh and one with the VCR).
    Should it be
    Aerial --> Tosh --> VCR --> TV
    or
    Aerial --> VCR --> Toss --> TV ????

    Will I lose quality if I route the TV signal through so many devices?

    Thanks.
    Kisses.
    Rebecca. ;)

    Mine is

    Aerial --> VCR --> Tosh --> TV

    strangely I actually get better picture quality going through the VCR than without, maybe mines got a booster or something.

    try and see, nothings going to blow up :)

    It doesn't really matter which order they are in as long as you don't get interference from one to the other.

    The VCR usually has an RF output which combines with the aerial signal going through it. If you don't use it, it's maybe worthwhile turning it off (if you can in your VCR) so that it doesn't cause interference. It doesn't usually though.

    As with all these things, it's a question of suck it and see :)

    Cheers,

    Ray D
