    Having problems connecting DVD, freeview recorder box and DVD to TV as the TV only has two scart connections. Managed to get it all set up with the DVD player going through the VCR, however although the welcome screen from the vcr can be seen, when we play a video or dvd the welcome screen stays on - we get sound but no video.

    if you have them all daisy chained correctly - put them all into standby - switch just one on and see if that comes through
    i have a loop

    VCR > TV scart2
    PVR > TV scart1
    and then PVR > DVD > VCR

    but it only works if each device is in standby
