    I am about to purchase a panny 6 with

    JS RGB to VGA converter - VGA for sky duties
    RCA component board - DVD prog scan component connection

    However i still have a bog standard video recorder (composite from scart) that i need to connect until a new DVD recorder replaces it later.

    I take it that i cannot daisy chain the video recorder through the sky box which in turn is connected to the plasma VGA slot as it is not a RGB signal ?

    Do i have to order a dreaded scart socket as well now ?

    Thanks

    Jon

    Your correct in that you cannot loop through the sky box and would probably need a scart socket - my advice would be to forget it and just wait until your new DVD recorder arrives.

    Thanks for the reply

    I thought as much.

    The wife still needs some soaps recorded when she works late. Just bought a DVD player a month or 2 back so changing is not an option for a while.

    Will have to buy a scart socket or upgrade to sky + i guess

    How many SCARTs does the VCR have?

    If two, easy, input and output to the video input on the screen. Only one requires a Y type cable, where the middle one goes in to your VCR and the others are for input/output.

    All the best,

    Dr John Sim.
