Help please?! I cant figure this out!

ok this is gonna be a bit muddled, we have a tv setup that consists of:

TV
Virgin box
Dvd recorder
Video Player

Now digibox is connected to the tv fine as is video player, they will all play when i turn each of them on. We arent bothered about the Vcr recording. My problem is i cant seem to get the dvd recorder to pick up the virgin box! Im sure its all 'scarted up' ok but im getting nowhere. So OH is about to pull it all out and start from scratch!!

I am hoping some kind person will help me by telling me what needs to be plugged into what?! e.g does dvd recorder need to go into the tv AND digibox?? HELP!!

There is two scart connections on the back off the Virgin box (one should be labeled VCR or something similar) make sure that, that is the one going into the DVD recorder

I would go

Virgin box into TV via scart using the normal output on the back of the v box
Virgin Box into DVD recorder using the VCR scart output
DVD recorder to TV via scart
VCR into TV using an aerial cable (so it goes on channel 0 or 6 instead of AV)

right will have to find an aerial lead then, that sounds like a plan!

I purchased a brill little scart box from Argos (£9.99 -534/2361) and all the leads plug in (audio too) and you just use buttons on the front to switch from one to another. Its a bit of a cop out but i found it saved me lots of hassle trying to figure out how to connect lots of thing together. Goo luck

That is how I would do it if your TV only has 2 scarts

Remember to change your DVD recorder to AV1 or 2 (some models say L1 or L2) depending on where you put the scart from the VBOX, so you can record.

EDIT! 3 minutes late,:whistling: good to see you have it working

Glad you got it all set up, the job I hate most is connecting the tv up to everything!

Thanks again! we got a new tv not long ago and we had to try and set everything up again, but obviously did something wrong! think i need another scart now from dvd to tv, so i can watch one channel whilst recording another, theres a button on the remote to switch from tv/dvd but when i switch to tv the screen is just blank, so think there is just a lead missing there!though its not essential.
