    Apologies if this has been discussed already but I've just got a Pace Twin and have connected it up as shown in the manual.

    Now I cannot view the picture from my VCR !

    It's connected through the Pace but doesn't seem to pass the signal through, any ideas ?

    Just checking- you haven't connected to an input-only SCART on the VCR have you? If your VCR has dual SCARTS make sure you are connected to the right one.

    Also, I assume you are selecting AUX on the twin, and have a fully-wired SCART from the Twin to the VCR?

    It could be that your TV is not auto-detecting the switch from RGB output on the Twin (assuming you are using RGB) to composite. Try manually selecting composite in on the TV.

    Also if your VCR uses S-Video out you will need to connect it directly to an S-Video compatible port on your TV. Switching can get complicated :-}

    Good luck- Colin

    or you could connect your vcr to the tv using another scart lead, if theres a spare SCART on the tv.

    or run an RF cable to the tv and tune the VCR in on CH 08 or whatever
