I have TV, Sky+ box and DVD/VCR combo, how do I connect them up
published on UK Free TV

You need just TWO SCART leads:

- one from the SCART on the TV marked (1) or (RGB) connected to the Sky+ box's SCART labelled "TV"

- one from the SCART on the Sky+ box marked "VCR" to the first SCART connector on the DVD/VCR combo.

You can then view the stuff from the DVD by either pressing "PLAY" or putting the Sky+ box into Standby mode.

stewart: If its a Samsung (its a decent bet), then although it doesn't have a scart, you can still connect it. It will probably have a bag with some cables, including one which has yellow, red and white connectors at one end, and a 3.5mm jack at the other. Thats an RCA attachment, and you can get a RCA/scart adapter really cheaply. Have a look at the manual.

Also have the look at the back of the combi. If its 8 years old or less from a decent brand, there is a good chance its got an HDMI as well - which is easy to swap for the scart. The make/models of TV and combi would help.
