Generally I found following the diagram in the DVD player instructions
worked fine. If you have a DVD player with no instructions, borrow one of
someone who has.
(It depends how many SCART sockets you have on your TV. Then you buy a
digital set top box and have to get that in as well!)
(anti-spam is as easy as 1-2-3 - not)
I've got to sort this all out tonight as well. I have a tape video and
an old digibox, a newish DVD and (I just remembered) 2 scart inlets on
the TV (I think.)
The aerial inlet has to start at the digibox obviously. The DVD goes to
the video then to the TV but it doesn't want to work like that. I think
it is a piracy protection default fault.
I must go to one of those techie newsgroups. Yugh!

DVD to TV (AV1)
Video to TV (AV2)
Vies versa if you want.
When you press AV once on the remote you get DVD.
When you press AV twice on the remote you get Video.
Some sets automatically detect when you press Play on either of them.
Just like it says in the instructions!.
That does assume that you have a TV with 2 Scart inputs... ;)
The way I have it is my DVD player has 1 scart out. Video has 2 scarts. TV
has 1. I connect the DVD to the Video and then the Video to the TV. If you
don't have 2 scarts on anything then you're stuck with having to have a
Scart switch box separately.
TC with 1 scart
Digibox with 2 scart
video with 2 scart
dvd with 1 scart
Digibox TV scart to TV scart
Digibox video scart to video scart AVI
Video scart AV2 to DVD scart.
Works a treat.
