Similar to the one I purchased from China. Only £8.

Re: Recording to DVD from V6 box

I'm glad it worked for you.... my DVD recorder says 'unable to record' (so I can't even record from BBC 1 now) :-(

This is the one I bought:

I am using it to connect my DVD cutter (with an HDMI output) to the TV scart input.

The two HDMI inputs on the TV are being used with the Virgin box and the DVD player - so at least I didn't waste my money!

Re: Recording to DVD from V6 box

I recently received a Tivo 6 box, and as suggested from various posts, I've purchased an HDMI to Scart convertor and an HDMI splitter for my DVD recorder (links below). I need to get the cables and am not sure which. Please let me know what I need and how everything is connected up.

Many thanks.

I'll make no bones about it. The V6 is VERY fussy about what you plug into the HDMI port. Despite the fact it is supposed to use the new HDCP 2.2 standard only for 4K output, it will reject most kit that isn't compliant with HDCP 2.2, so look in the reviews of these products on Amazon for VM customers that have got this kit to work otherwise you are wasting your money.

Re: Recording to DVD from V6 box

With trial and error and cables flying everywhere, after 20 minutes I got it to work. I thought the HDMI lead from the TV would go into the splitter, as others elsewhere have reported needing one, but the lead actually has to go in the DVD recorder. As a result, the splitter is not needed. If you do the above, then the DVD recorder and V6 are connected, but you will see no picture. I don't quite understnd that, but it doesn't matter.

So an HDMI lead from the V6 goes into the HDMI to scart converter, a scart lead goes from the converter to the DVD recorder, and the HDMI lead from the TV goes into the DVD recorder.
Job done.

This connection is needed if you want to watch output from the V6 in HD on the TV. Otherwise all you are watching is the converted analogue picture at 240 lines per frame (VHS Video quality). You should be seeing a picture on the TV when you select the HDMI connection to the EX77 & you have AV selected as recording source.
