    Hi, I hope someone is able to help here. I have been able to record tv shows onto my hard drive using the antenna in on my Medion tuner card, and have created dvd's of these bjut I am wondering if I can get a better quality recording. I also have Svideo and Composite inputs on my system. I want to record from the digibox which has 2 scart outs - 1 to the TV and 1 which is marked VCR - I am trying to use this to connect to my system. I cannot get a signal on my system from this connection. My system has Cyberlink PowerCinema and PowerProducer on it, I have changed to Svideo connection but nothing appears on the monitor. I am using a scart to svideo + two phono plugs lead. Am I doing something wrong or not doing something I should be doing? Also, the software seems limited in its recording qualities - limited to best, better, standard quality and so on. When recording to DVD I have 3 options - 60 mins dvd, 120 mins dvd and 180 mins dvd - each of which has progressively worse recording quality. Which of these should I use? Sorry for this long rambling post, any help is appreciated and I will give more info if I can.

    Are you sure your lead is a 'scart to svideo' and not an 'svideo to scart' lead? They're not the same.

    Sorry if I'm stating the obvious.

    Don't be worried about stating the obvious with me - at the moment nothing is obvious. Thanks for replying - how can I tell if it's scart to svideo? The scart plug has a full set of pins and there is no switch as I've seen on some scart leads, hope this helps.
