Hello Guys,

I know this question may have been asked time and time again on this forum but I really do need help connecting my Standard Hills Model freeview box to my VHS/DVD combo so I can record the shows I like when I'm out.

I have been trying for the last hour now and still dont know what to do.

I have the cord comming from the satilite to the freeview box and then from there I dont know where the red/yellow/white cords go exactly.
I have tryed afew diffrent combinations and im not getting very far! :(

Please help!

The red/yellow/white cables for composite video and audio simply go from the output on the back of the STB into a line input on the VHS. You can then record from this line input.

Thank you for the reply.
I thought as much. So the r/w/y cords go into the av in on the dvd combo and then would the av out of the combo be used to plug the video player to the TV to show the signal?

There is two scart ports on the back of the hills box, one saying "TV" and one saying "VCR"
