I bought a new TV.

I’ve just bought a new TV, thinking it would be an easy enough task to simply swap all the current connections over.

But… the new TV does not have scart.
 
My Tivo box connects to my current TV via a scart cable but it does also have an HDMI cable (which does not appear to do anything).
 
If I disconnect the scart will the Tivo box then automatically connect via the HDMI cable?
 
Thank you.

Wise to make sure TV and box is switched off before making the connections

Re: I bought a new TV.

Might be an "old" HDMI cable so could be worth buying a newer one.
is the TV a 4K model?
See if it works - if not you need to buy a new good quality HDMI capable approved for 4K connections.
