1. Can someone please explain to me how I can archive a set of recordings from my hard disk onto a VCR.

2. On the assumption that this particular problem is overcome can you also explain how I play back that cassette tape to validate that the tranfer was successful without having to connect the VCR to the TV as well. Is it possible to play the tape back via the Toppy for example.

When in the archive list, instead of just pressing Play, press the Red button to highlight a file. A number will appear next to it. You can then highlight another, and press Red again, as described in the Day to day use section of the FAQs.

Start your VCR recording, from it's external input, and all should be fine.

If you use the TV/Sat button on your Toppy, it will pass through the signal from the VCR to the TV. It should also do this if it's turned off too, so you just need the one SCART lead going into the back of the TV set.

Nigel.
