    Currently looking at Sky+ as a tuner for my plasma as it has a s-video output, twin tuners etc, but what would I get if I looped my normal (i.e. non s-vhs) video through it? Would I get any picture?

    Had to do some cable swapping since I only use s-video for my DVD player and scarts for SKY+ and VCR.

    If I connect my s-video between SKY+ and the TV then the SKY+ output is fine, when I connect my VCR's scart output to SKY+ scart input and the SKY+ scart ouput to the TV then I get the picture from the VCR.
    I haven't found any combination that sends the VCR output through SKY+ and out to the TV via the s-video.

    I honestly don't know if this is what you were asking about:)

    i think the last line of your reply comfirms what i thought, that it is not possible to connect a non s vhs deck via scart to a sky plus box, that links to a plasma via a s video lead and get a picture for the occasional video tape. looks like i need to do a bit more research to connect everything up:confused:
