Hi Folks, new here and need a bit of help. I have just bought a Humax Freesat box and want to add it to the ones I have connected to my Samsung 40" tv. I have a Panasonic dvd/video recorder, a Philips surround sound dvd player and a Tevion 80gb hard drive recorder now I want to connect the Humax, have tried to put it where the sky box was but the picture is not good and on hd it is terrible with a black line right across the screen and ghostly lines first top to bottom then side to side, so something must be wrong, Can anyone please advise how to start over and reconnect everything. Many thanks

Welcome to satellites forum,

I trust you installed the HDMI cable from the Humax to the TV.... for Hd

Connect up the HDMI lead, plug scart in TV out/vcr out of Humax to Panasonic dvd/video recorder.

Insert a opitical Digital audio output to Philips surround sound dvd player and a Tevion 80gb hard drive recorder along with a scart from VCR out if not used.

Also make sure your not on letterbox mode and you select 16:9 if widescreen

Just an idea of basic connection of the above equip...
