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.

I have just purchased a new HDTV with built in FreeSat & Freeview HD. How do i connect this TV to my exisitng DVD player (not HD) and my SKY+ box (not HD). I would like to continue using my SKY+ box as a recording device.

Thanks

Mark

Mark: I would have thought you would use a SCART cable to the Sky+ box, and another from the SCART on the Sky+ box marked "VCR" to the DVD player.

Then put Sky+ into standby mode to watch a DVD.

fin: If you want to record Freeview, get a Freeview+ or Freeview+HD box.

ben: Basically no! as if you are referring to "free to view" cards these only allow you to view various programmes like 5* / 5US etc or ITV programmes in some areas that although free are encrypted for legal reasons, but not for purposes such as you require which I believe are £10.00 per month on a subscription basis.
