I have recently purchased a Panasonic DMR BWT700 DVD recorder which is coupled to my Samsung tv via HDMI cable.

I also have a standard definition Virgin Media set top box, this is connected to the TV via Scart and to the dvd recorder's AV2 input also via Scart as stated in the dvd recorder's manual. However, although the picture is present there is no sound on av2. The recorder will record the AV2 picture well but still no sound.

The panasonic manual (which is not the best written manual) also states as a 'throwaway' that a 21 pin scart adaptor is needed. It states nothing about what type of adapator where it is connected etc.

Does anyone have any ideas about the lack of sound on AV2?

Does anyone know why I can't receive BBC4 HD correctly? A recent retune resulted in the addition of BBC News HD, Al Jazeera HD etc along with BBC4HD. The new HD transmissions are fine with the exception of BBC4 HD which suffers from regular blocky interference or freezes briefly. I thought this station was transmitted on the same mux as BBC News HD, Al Jazeera etc which I receive without problem. Signal is received from Fenham transmitter in Newcastle which is reported to be problem free.
