What goes where?

Postby Mowser » Thu Apr 01, 2010 3:42 pm

Ok. I'm getting a new telly for the world cup with TDT installed.

Currently I have a TV, small sat & receiver, DVD/VHS combi player and a TDT box.

What socket goes where and in what order? I am extremely discombobulated.

Having bought from a local company here, they did all that for me! All installed, checked, quick idiots crash course, job done! ;-)
Is this any help?

Forget the small TV - you don't need that now unless you use it in another room connected to the TDT box which you no longer need as the new TV has one built in.

The DCD/VHS player connects to the new TV via the usual SCART lead.

The Sat receiver also connects to the TV via a second SCART socket, or you can connect it to the DVD/VHS player if, as I suspect, it is also a recorder. The signal then goes through the DVD/VHS player to the TV.

Give me a call if you need a hand, but once you get the cables out of the box it is straight forward.

Can I plug my TDT into the second scart socket on my Sky box?

It needs to be plugged directly into the TV. The reason that the TDT is very cheap compared to a Freesat one is that the Freesat isn't officially sold here in Spain and receives the British channels but theTDT one is for use in Spain and only receives Spanish channels.
