Customer: my dvd recorder only has a scart lead. so I had to buy a scart to hdmi converter from amazon. I have had it working and recording but not for awhile. I don't know if I have hanged the settings or something I cannot remember,

Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with this but I'll do my best to help you.

Does the sky box only have a hdmi connection on it (no scart)?

Hi Nathan The Sky box has both scart and hdmi. my tv only has hdmi. I have two scart sockets on my dvd recorder

Okay for this purpose you'd hook the sky box to the recorder via scart, and then you can use hdmi from the sky box to the tv.

Thank you,
