You can't, You could use the scart to record shows (if the DVD has recording facilitys) from the tivo but not to play back DVD's

Thank you ! One more stupid question - can I get an adapter that will allow me to connect the DVD player to the tv ? Scart to hdmi ?

Re: Connect dvd player to TiVo box?

you can get converters but it's probably better and almost as cheap to buy a newer dvd or blu ray player

 any blu ray player also plays all your dvds so that is the better investment and you can get one for 30 - 40 on eby, that will go into a hdmi socket

amazon are offering 60 days of lovefilm by post for free with any new dvd or blu ray. player

doubtless there are strings attached and small print, and arguably a dinosaur like lovefilm by post is better ignored but it's nice to have options Smiley Happy
