Re: v6 scart and usb port/s

Neither SCART nor USB are currently enabled.

Re: v6 scart and usb port/s

This is the connection panel on the rear of the V6:

The mini SCART is currently live, but I have been told its functionality is only temporary, as is the analogue audio out next to it. As you can see there is only one HDMI. Don't know if the USB can be used to plug in a keyboard (as with the TiVO), but otherwise it can only be used as a charging point.

Re: v6 scart and usb port/s

If your worrying about a SCART out IMHO you would be better looking at upgrading your equipment (specifically whatever you want to plug the SCART lead into) before a V6 would be worthwhile. SCART is only SD.

Re: v6 scart and usb port/s

I've noticed that there is a audio port on the back of the V6 box . Should I connect my sound bar to this port or to the same on on the back of my tv

Re: v6 scart and usb port/s

The "mini SCART" socket on the V6 is probably this:

A 9-pin variation called VIVO, also seen on video cards, that allows S-Video in, S-Video out, component out, and composite out.


There are 10 types of people: those who understand binary and those who don't
