margorie robinson: The answer is obvious, surely: with a scart lead.

Margorie Robinson:

Would I be right in thinking that you have a SCART lead already connecting the Sky+HD box to your TV set?

If so, the alternative is to connect the the Sky+HD box to the TV set using an HDMI lead (there is no value in buying an expensive 'gold plated' one) and then connecting the VCR through the Sky box with a SCART lead between VCR and Sky box. That assumes your TV set has an HDMI input. Also note that not all equipment connected with HDMI has 'auto-switching' so you may have to manually select the correct input using your remote control so you can watch the Sky programmes and/or the VCR.

If you can give us the make and model number of your TV and VCR, we may be able to assist further.

Check your Philips TV User Manual for how to set it to display the signals from the HDMI input. Not all TVs automatically switch to that so you may need to manually select it and the User Guide would tell you how to do that.

My Sky+HD box can show the ouitput from the VCR connected to it via a SCART. Your alternative is to obtain a SCART Extender that will allow the VCR to playback through the TV - but it will not record from the TV nor the Sky+HD box. These days very few people with a Sky+HD box need to record other than on that box. So the VCR would normally only be used for the playback of existing recordings on tape.
