    Dirt cheap but 1 scart only but an almost punch-out in the case for a second
    scart for other models. To use on TV and a recorder. Easy to get in the case
    and cut out hole and mount a second scart. Can you just straight parallel
    jumper across the video and sound and ground lines (signal drop/ impedance
    problems?) and do you have to put a DC block in for aspect ratio control
    conflict?

    So for a 15 GBP Asda MDS V3 of 2008 its possible to add in a second Scart
    and so feed both a TV and recorder.
    Jumpered lines 1,3,4, 17,19,21 and no problems on this pair of TV and
    recorder.
    Nice obvious on/standby LED indication on these and echoing of zapper signal
    and retention of settings on power off , so can be used atached to a
    reserve/second recorder, without TV, for simple recording, after initial
    installation. Very much lower power consumption , one large NXP philips chip
    and not much else other than memory and tuner in these.

    Also showed that the problem with 2 channels on the other digibox was not an
    aerial /feed problem but something internal to the unit, as the 2 channels
    now come in strong.
