Is there anyone that can tell me how to record sky digital to VCR.

I have the DVD player/VCR combo connected to the TV and can watch Videos and DVDs. I have attached the sky box to the VCR via SCART plug to 4 pin SVHS plug + 2 RCA plugs. Not sure what to do next.

HI Kate,

Set the TV to the channel or AV input that you normally use to watch a DVD/video.
You now need to set the VCR to the AV input that you have the Sky box connected to.
It should say next to the connections if it is AV1, AV2 etc.
Or just cycle through the AV inputs until you see the Sky signal - Make sure the Sky box is on!

OK, thank you, I worked out how to record channel 1, 2, 3 and C4. But cannot see any of the sky channels through the VCR?
