    Digital TV

    Evening all.
    My 78yo mother in law needs to upgrade her tv ready for the digital switchover, she has on old CRT and a VHS video recorder.
    I know that she just has to add a freeview box, but i'm not sure if the VHS will still work. Anybody know?
    Thanks

    Connect like this:Freeview box Scart VCR Scart TVThat will run … Connect like this:Freeview box > Scart > VCR > Scart > TVThat will run freeview through the VCR and she can record what's on the TV, will only be able to record what she's watching as the VCR's tuner won't work (analogue only). Can still watch Videos fine aswell.



    That's great.
    What about the aerial cable, would that go the same route?

    Only needed into the freeview box and nothing else.



    Many thanks

    My gf nan is 96 and having the freeview box was to problematic.

    In the end bought a new tv and a big button one for all remote as she couldn't read the no's on the new remote.
