Linking HDR Fox T2 to DVD recorder

    I was a bit surprised to find that the HDR Fox T2 only has the one HDMI socket.

    I have linked it to my DVD recorder (which also only has a single HDMI out) via SCART. The loss in quality will presumably be inconsequential.

    Other than the fact that the custom firmware for the Humax makes a DVD recorder unnecessary, does anyone have any comments on my link up?

    Only that you might find the recorded DVDs confused on aspect ratio.

    Hmm - that's a point. According to the recorder manual, aspect ratio is automatically transferred if the recording is made in VR mode (this is a Sony).

    I shall experiment!

    The DVD recorder will only record in 720 X 576 anyway so I don't think the loss of quality will be a problem

    Assuming the DVDR can record RGB use a fully wired scart cable and record RGB, any quality loss will be minimal. You may have problems using a switch on the output, I had to use a seperate hdmi in on my amp as using a switch had some odd effects on my HD FOX T2 analogue outputs (For some combinations when not viewing the HD FOX by hdmi knocks out the analogue outputs). I didn't pursue it futher as using a spare hdmi in on the amp fixed it.
