    Your dvd player goes in 1 scart socket on tv, and the freeview box goes in the other scart socket on your tv

    No, 1 scart socket will do fine

    not unless your planning to record your freeview via your dvd/vcr i would presume

    well, that wasn't mentioned but surely you could just record from the tv display. Just guessing that as Ive never done it. But pretty sure you could.

    so i was right you do not need an aerial to run the dvd/vcr thats why i thought the vcr/dvd had been connected to the freeview

    thank you kindly for the help and not ripping me to shreds lol

    Long time since i've used scarts but generally if you have two scarts on the TV and say three devices then some people use the a VHS player as a 'pass through' so they can either record from the scart or if the VHS is turned off on the front the signal will pass directly to the TV.

    If you have issues with scarts taking control if daisy chained in this way then you can do UHF loop through so it would be tv lead into the freeview box then into VHS then into TV and tune the freeview box into the VHS as a channel. You can then have scarts from VHS and Freeview going direct into the TV for regular viewing with the ability to record freeview on the VHS on a channel.

    All from memory so may be completely wrong.

    seen it in other threads

    Just pulled tv out a little and there is two scart leads in tv also, so god knows why its got two in freeview box to, must have been a man that set it up lol

    The ripped to shreds is generally when the person's known as a **** (bah filters ryhmes with bat)

    @Jonny aye the record part was my presumption on why they would even suggest 2x scart variant
