I've just got hold of a pair of Vivanco SCART switchers, seemingly very similar to the Quintro+ and Trilogy 1 units (are they the same OEM unit?), and as automatic switchers they work perfectly, but...wherever I see these advertised, there is a note to the effect that it's possible to record one source whilst viewing another - for the life of me, I can't manage it! Once I lock a source, that's the only source I can view through the TV output - the indicators for other sources illuminate, but the locked source stays on-screen. Funnily enough the instructions make absolutely NO claims to be able to do this, rather it just says you can lock a source for uninterrupted recording, NOT that you can view a totally different source whilst doing so. I've contacted Vivanco, and they're pretty confident that I should be able to record one source and view another. So... 1) I have two switchers with exactly the same fault, or 2) There is something in my setup that is causing me grief, or 3) You can't actually view one source whilst recording a different one. From lurking I know a few people here have these switchers, so I guess I need to pick a few brains! I'm using fully-wired (I hope) SCART ribbons, and connected to the switcher I have TV (obv), VCR, DVD, Sky box and Freeview box, exactly as Vivanco's example diagram suggests. Any help MUCH appreciated!
