HI I am a complete novice with electronics. My virgin set top box (not Tivo) was connected to my dvd recorder by a scart cable but engineer replaced my virgin box with a new one yesterday. I did not notice until today that he did not reconnect my new set top box to my dvd so I have tried to do this but my new box only has one scart connection which goes to my TV. So my issue is : can I get a cable which has scart connection at one end (for dvd) then connects in to virgin box - "ethernet" or "usb" are the only two possible connections I can see so which dio I use (if any)? I would be very grateful for help as I cannot record anything at present
It's not working for me. I have an hdmi cable going from the my VHD box to my tv and my tv only has 1 hdmi socket and a scart cable going from my vcr/dvd recorder combi to my VHD box and it does not work for me. I have two scart sockets on the back of my vcr/dvd recorder combi and I tried using both with my scart cable connected from both to my VHD box. I have had my tv since 2008.
If you connect the V box lead to the AVI 1 scart on your DVD recorder then connect a scart lead from AV2 (decoder) to your TV it will record. The only problem is you can't change channels whilst recording
