  1. I've asked this before but my hard drive packed in with no backup!
    I have my TV hooked up with AV1 and AV2 to TV and Video also the Sat
    receiver.How do I hook up a DVD player with no spare Scart sockets?
    Both those on the TV and Video are in use.I was going to wait and buy
    a DVD recorder instead of the Video but I had a DVD player arrive free
    with a Golf order.
    Need some help here as I'm long retired and my wife wants to watch
    some bought films.Thanks for any help.

    You can purchase an inexpensive A/V switch/router from Radio Shack or
    WalMart. You can get them with capability for switching 2 inputs, 3
    inputs, 4, etc... into your television A/V input

    i suggest connecting the dvd player direct to the TV scart input
    currently used for the vcr, then connect the vcr to tv using the 75ohm
    co-ax lead. tune the tv into the vcr 's UHF output (channel UHF 36
    usually). You probably wont see much difference /loss in quality, and
    you'll have avoided the need for messy interconnects and switch boxes.

    I suggest you connect one satellite decoder output scart to the tv
    (ie.e leave as it is) and one to the vcr, to be able to record from

    hope this helps, Ben

    You should get one of these SCART expanders

    Since you are in the UK you should have no trouble finding a supplier.

    Somewhere I believe I still have an old German plaque which stated your
    signature line. It was "Ve get too soon Oldt undt too late schmardt"
    Got it from an old German Club.... And it speaks the idea very well. Truer
    words couldn't have been spoken.

  6. thanks to all for the replies,unforunately in the UK we don't have a
    Walmart or Radio Shack but I'm sure I'll find a shop with the same
    goods.Many thanks.
