I bought a new LG recorder + HDD yesterday, conencted it as follows: HTMI cable from recorder to TV, Scart from sky box to recorder (video out point on sky, decoder in on LG), SCART from TV to sky box. This is how the book suggested connecting, however this does not seem to allow me to record sky I can play prerecorded DVDs fine [ thougn have to cahange to HTMI source on my TV, just seems that that LG recorder can't pick up sky. What am I doing wrong. When I run the setup programme auto locate it finds nothing and shows no signal!!

Set the recorder to whatever input the Sky is connected to.

No that didn't work it is jsut like the recorder can not see the sky box /signal. It is currently wired (which doesn't work), HDMI cable from LG recorder to TV, Scart from Skybox to TV and Scart from video scart point on TV into Recorder. The set up ahs AV2 as where to look. The digi aerial thing goes into the sky box, I have tried clicking source ont eh recorder but it does nothing
