Connecting video recorder to TiVo

My old V+ box supported my VHS video cassette recorder.  My HDTV is connected to the TiVo box by an HDMI cable thus leaving the SCART connection free. VM have confirmed that the video recorder can be connected using the SCART connection. Has anyone done this and got their video recorder up and running. The TV needs to be set to a specific channel for playback and I need to know which channel to use.

Any help in this connection would be much appreciated

Re: Connecting video recorder to TiVo

Hi brianglenister,


Welcome to the Community!

You can set this up with HDMI between TV and TiVo® and a SCART between TV and TiVo®.

With this setup you would need to switch the SCART from the TiVo® to the TV to actually play back from the VCR.

Alternatively, you could use a two way SCART lead to save moving cables every
time you want to watch the VCR.

Hope this helps.

All the best  Smiley Very Happy
