HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Needed.
Ive been trying for about a week to sort out the Scart socket
comblnation on my Tv/sat/ video/ Ntl/ Dvd. All i want to do is be able to record from Sat and Ntl and i`m BEATEN
This from me who sat for 16 hours closing the level2 bridges
on a athelon xp chip, so i dont quit easilly.
HERE is my line up with amount of scarts and names i belive ive tried every combination but open to suggestions. I purchased a three way scart adapter but this didn`t help.

Strong Sat (Tv) (Video) (Decoder) 3 scarts

If any1 can think up a combination that will let me record both channels

Why didn't they add a way of locking them in like parallel cables in PCs? Everytime I move something one or other falls out.

And answer to that...chuck away all those oxygen free monsters you have and replace them with this ‘high quality’ lead that costs £9.99 and supposedly has a “positive locking” system.

If one simply distorts the outer shield with a set of needle nose pliers, this will lock the cable into the socket better

Otherwise a vertical or flexible flat cable SCART lead will allow the cable to hand down rather then get caught up behind everything else in the rack

They are a pain, only B+O seem to have a clamp that ties the integral video SCART into the back of the TV

Thanks guys I will look into those suggestions. As for a night on curry and beer, BC, I often fall out with a certain person.
