    We have connected V+ by purchasing 2nd skart and hooked up from sony line 1 tv socket to tv and then from line 3/decoder socket to V= box. Tried to burn film from V+ to dvd recorder and ht kit thought it was doing it but after the 2 hours the disc was blank when tried in the recorder. Have we hooked up correctly. If not please advise.,

If you have your vplus box running through hdmi the scart and rf is disabled duno why this is so that is probably why. you would need to go restore the setting to rgb or composite in displat and audio and try it

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.
Post back if you need any more help

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

I cant get DVD RW disk to work in ny dvd recorder DVDR5500

This player only accepts DVD+RW rewritable discs. Some players are also fussy with which brands you use. If you are using DVD+RW and it isin't working try another brand of disc.Hope this helps.

14 August 2007 - Yes it can be connnected like this and will record, even if there is copy protection on the video or dvd - it just ignores the protection. It would be a useless bit of equipment if it couldn't to this basic task. Regards
