Evening folks (well evening at the moment where I am :-)),

I was wondering if there is a way to plug a VHS or anything else via the Scart on the dreambox and then record to PVR (so can edit/create DVD)

Thanks, fad

No, only outputs are available on the Scart of the Dreambox. And loopthrough.

Llew, I beg to differ my friend. There's an option in the main menu called 'VCR Scart'.

Currently I use this in the pub to input a Sly IT box via scart and then out on the RF signal from the DM7020 to all the TV's in the pub. It works great. Now, as to recording it, I've not tried. Although it does sound promising.

No entry into the Dreambox via the video processor for recording on my DM8000. I may be wrong, but I wouldn't think it was possible on the DM7020 either.

So the video input is presented to the RF modulator via the loopthrough from the Scart in that box. Interesting.
