I've had two JVCs and wore them out (The first was the HR7700 aka Ferguson 3V23). Now have a Sony E820. I want one that will start recording automatically from my Grundig GDT1000 STB timer which supports this. Panasonic External Link seems to be a possibility. Doesn't have to be S-VHS - used mainly for time shifting but I want decent quality & 2 scarts. TV is Sony 32FQ75. Do all STB 'auto record' VCRs work the same way with the Scart pin 8 HIgh trigger?
