I have visited the connection help facility on various websites but I still cannot work it out.
I have a Set Top Box (2 scarts - VCR & TV, TV port, aerial port), DVD recorder (2 scarts - AUX I/O & TO TV I/O, Antenna In, TV Out), TV (aerial is in loft and connected direct to TV although picture is poor and I rarely use this. 4 scarts) & VCR (2 scarts - AV2 Decoder & AV1 TV).
How do I connect it all up? I had it working in part, although it took an age for the set top box to switch channels and I had no internet connection (ethernet from set top box).
So in the meantime I have just connected the TV to the set top box. Internet works fine and so does cable TV.
How do I connect the rest? Your help would be greatly appreciated as the Mrs and kids will no longer be on my back and I will be able to have an early night not entwined in TV cables!!
