    My family just bought a new TV. Unfortunately, we didn't check the number of SCART ports it has. It has one but we need to connect two devices to the TV which are connected via SCART. Is it possible that they are connected both in the same port via some sort of an adapter? Or one through the other (Dreambox to VHS, VHS to TV, VHS also has a SCART port)?

    I think it's possible (if I'm not totally mistaken).
    Go to you local dealer of electrnoc things and ask them for a 1-to-2 divider.

    A picture of such a gizmo is seen at http://www.clasohlson.se/Product/Product.aspx?id=15437262

    Thanks. A nice choice there, but I'm probably going to buy it in a local electronics store and not order it across the ocean to pay three times the price.

    EDIT: oops, that's co.uk not .com amazon. Anyway, I won't order it. I found it in a local store already.
