an old vhs question
Just leafing through crappy cheap VHS recorders.. because today I have been fleetingly forced to use that horrible old medium!

If you want to feed a signal into a VHS recorder via SCART in order to record it onto a tape do you need a VHS machine with 2 X Scarts at the back - or is 1 X scart enough?

1x SCART should be enough if it sees the input signal. And that's a difficult
one. Perhaps it's best to bring a dv camera with cable with a scart at one
end to test it out before buying? I'm not sure all VCR's (especially old ones)
support that...

If a VCR has 2x SCART it may be more likely to support it (why would you
otherwise need the second scart, in theory you could even do input & output
with just one).
