I had this problem. I bought a multi scart box off ebay for about £4 and it had 4 scart sockets, so I plugged that into my TV and then was able to plug the 2 leads to/from the Archos into this multi scart.

How to Connect VCR directly to the TV without problemd


The VCR is today old technology that doesn't marry well with the latest tv sets and accessories. The best way is to connect via a scart lead.

There have been so few digital vcr's produced few households have them - most are analogue format and must either record from a set-top box, from some tv sets while watching the programme, from a dvd or dvr or anything with a scart socket...
Mostly the in-built uhf modulator is redundant and generally the machines are now only suitable for playback of previously recorded tapes, though I still find them useful for recording.

How to connect Sky digibox & DVD recorder to Samsung UE46ES6300 TV


Buy 2 hdmi leads and use one to connect sky TV decoder to the hdmi 1 socket on the back of the TV and if your DVd recorder has an hdmi socket attach it to hdmi 2 or leave it on the scart socket
as you don't name your dvd recorder the connections available are unknown
hdmi is the best followed by component which requires a 3 cable lead 3 video (video is red green blue plugs ) audio is red and white which is a 2 wire lead which all are needed to get video and audio to your TV
scart is the lowest quality along with composite video

What plugs in where at the back of model 32AV633D Does single scart go to ext 1 or ext 2 Where does outside aerial plug in, there are so many ? Sorry but I'm a complete technophobe who is hopeless at...


If you have a cable box or freeview box, your main aerial lead plugs into the box. Then you connect a scart lead from your cable box/freeview box/ or dvr box to ext 1 on the tv. Where the aerial lead plugs into your cable/freeview/dvr box, there may be an aerial out socket too. You could connect a patch lead from the box to your tv as well so you have UHF direcy from your cable/freeview/dvr box to the TV as well as scart

Humax DRT800 DVR recorder has no sound


Loss of sound is often a problem with the SCART connections. The SCART may not be pushed in securely, or if the SCART is old the pins may not be good. Check SCART is securely in, or try another SCART lead.

Connecting a dvd 250gb hard drive recorder to tv and virgin box


Right then, on the back of the virgin box there are 2 scart outlets, connect one scart from the TV scart port to the scart in on the DVD recorder, then connect one scart lead from the scart out on the DVD recorder to the TV.
Find the DVD recorder source channel on the TV and then use the DVD remote control to find the digital input on the DVD recorder, this is usually AUX channel.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

DVR, VCR & TV


You need to connect a scart lead between the TV and VCR, A Scart lead is a multi core (12 or 15 pin) cable with oblong shape connectors which just plug in to sockets on the device. If there is more than one scart socket on your device it should have a symbol IN or OUT or TV or SAT otherwise just experiment until you get the right connexion.

Can't re patch tv with set top box to watch tv


Hi.

Ok here goes.

1) Take airial lead from the wall socket in to antenna in on freeview box.

2) connect short usually black airial type lead in to antenna out socket on freeview. plug the other end of this lead in to aerial in on vcr.

3) connect the other end of this aerial type lead to airial plug on the back of tv.

4) now if you have 2 or more scart sockets on the back of tv set plug in the scarts in this order.
Freeview box scart with tv on it connect to scart 1 on tv set.
Freeview box vcr scart connect to vcr in scart socket on vcr.
Vcr scart marked tv plug scart from here to scart 2 on tv
If you have 3 scart sockets on tv you can connect dvd using scart to scart socket 3 on tv.

If Tv has only 1 scart the aerial leads will stay the same as I have stated,
Freeview must go to scart socket on tv set.
leave second scart from freeview to vcr plugged in so you can record freeview by putting vcr to line 1 or AV 1.
you will need to put tv on channel (0) & tune this channel to the video play a tape that you recognise then go to tv tuning & tune tv untill you see video playing then store this on channel (0).
DO NOT USE AUTO TUNING IT WILL PUT CHANNELS IN THE WRONG ORDER JUST USE MANUAL TUNING.

Now to view Dvd you will either need to purchase A scart switch box. Or have keep unpluging freeview scart from tv so you can plug in dvd .

If your tv has red yellow white phono sockets you can plug dvd in to these, you may need to purchase phono leads.

Hope this helps.
