[access-uk] Re: Sky Talker initial views

hi peter thanks but the scart from the tv goes in to a box that is helping us 
to use our dvd recorder but yes if you think of it one end of the scart should 
be in the tv and the other should go somewhere else if i unplug it from the box 
and put it in to the back of the scart from the talker then it should work but 
maybe the dvd player will then not work. this is why i need the name of the dvd 
player that steve uses on the pc. maybe then we could have much better access 
to the dvds using the pc like say my pavilion windows 64 bit machine where the 
sound is beter than our sky sound. pat could hear the dvd's on that machine. 
she does struggle with the normal dvd player anyway because of the inaccessible 
menus. anyway will give it a go. i did scan the sky talker mannual but of 
course a lot of it is pictures of where to plug in the cables. again with all 
this stuff it would be nice to actually have a mannual that one could really 
read but let's look on the bright side like you sai
 d it is better than nothing. thanks very much for all your help though. there 
are so many cables just like the back of the pc i think i will stick to chess 
playing and tuning the pianos 1smile, smile. cheers now let you know how i go.
