Re: V6 Box Scart connection

HDMI provides copyright protection for those wishing to copy material that they have no right to copy.

SCART has no such protection but can't copy HD or 4K material, hence inferior quality.

Why do you want to make copies of any material you record on a V6? After all, you can watch it whenever you want at broadcast quality.

Re: V6 Box Scart connection

Personally- I don't want to copy anything
I just want to send an RF signal down a coaxial cable to all 5 TV's in other rooms of my house

This is the system I used for years with the TiVo and it worked well for us and our household

Using the V6 HDMI all round the house would mean a massive HDMI cabling project to 5 other rooms and the expensive purchase of 5 TV's with an HDMI socket on the back of each TV

(are well that's progress)

Re: V6 Box Scart connection

There's an earlier post on this trail about the fact that V6 hdmi to splitter to hdmi/scart converter to RF modulator will work however it won't work if ur trying to go V6 to HDD for recording purposes!!!

Re: V6 Box Scart connection

My hobby is spotting dodgy hairstyles in TV shows and saving these clips on my HDD recorder to amuse my friends.
I also like to spot myself in the crowd at music festivals and save these clips for posterity.
Seriously Ernie, do you really think that anyone wanting to output to a HDD recorder is up to no good?

Re: V6 Box Scart connection

If u look back at pages 3 & 4 of this thread there are a couple of comments where people have this set up and it appears to work but I believe you have to set the converter to PAL and not NTSC to ensure u get audio as well as visual?

Re: V6 Box Scart connection

It works in my Parent's house the set up of a HDMI-Scart Converter box daisy chained to a RF Modulator box to convert an old TV to the V6 box
