I'm limited on the amount of information I can offer since we have neither SCART (U.S.) nor do I know what the jack-pack looks like on the back of your VCR/DVD.
However, most Digital TV boxes today come with HDMI or Component (red blue green), and HDMI would be ideal for the TV Box, and may free up the SCART for the DVD/VCR player.
How do I connect my old Hitachi DVD/VCR DV/PF4E(UK)combi to my new Samsung LE32C450 TV? - I have a Virgin digital tv box and this uses the only scart socket on the new tv. I am confused by the range of leads and whether the Hitachi needs to be upgraded.Can anyone help me please?
