    I have a Panasonic Viera TV with no Scart socket, just USB and HDMI sockets. I also have a Humax HDR - Fox T2 HD Digital Recorder. with a Scart socket. Just bought a used VHS recorder to watch old video's of grandchildren. I've connected scart on video recorder to scart on Humax but am unable to find a picture on TV, which is connected to Humax by HDMI.

    Would be grateful for help in connecting these together. Thanks.

    I believe the Humax does NOT have a SCART input - it is output only. Your TV should have an AV input (composite video probably phono sockets) and you should be able to connect the VHS direct to this with an appropriate lead (SCART to phono?) make sure it is a SCART output lead or switchable.

    thanks for speedy reply. I've attached two pictures of the reverse of my tv. Should I be able to find a cable that is scart to this socket and if so what is the socket called? Thanks.

    Use a switched scart adaptor to 3 RCA phono cable (Red/White/Yellow) and plug them into the corresponding AV2 sockets.
    The socket in picture no 2 is for a short adaptor cable which has a plug at one end (to fit that AV1 socket) and a scart socket at the other end and was usually supplied with the TV.

    Assuming you have a compatible TV you need a adaptor cable which normally should come with the TV. The TV should have a multipurpose port that looks a bit like a hdmi socket. You cannot route it via most any modern pvr including a HDR-FOX-T2.

    Thanks for the replies. I'm happier now I know what cables I need. Will let you know if I get it to work.
