hi and sorry if this has already been asked!  im struggling to find the answer even using the search.

i have a beovision 7-40 mkII which i love - esp the red led retro display and dont want to change the tv.

however i have been supplied with a new set top box - the virgin v6 and it only outputs using an HDMI lead - the old v5 box had HDMI and also scart outputs and i used the scart-in  on the back of my beovision 7-40 mkII - it worked very well and had a good picture and sound. 

so how can i connect this new v6 box to my bv 7 as my tv has no hdmi input - just 3 scart - in. 

many many thanks for any help offered.

It is not an easy task - but it may be possible.

I used Google to search (the search function in the forum page is rather bad).

I searched for this: beovision 7-40 mk2 and hdmi.

This is one of the results:

Feel free to come back, if you have questions after researching a bit.

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

I use one of these converters on the HDMI out of my FireTV connected to a scart adapter on my Beocenter 1 TV via the red, white and yellow cables. You should be able to use the existing scart input as set  for your old box.

You must ensure you buy the version that converts HDMI in to Composite out, and on the scart you need to ensure it is a composite in to scart out. You can get switchable scart adapters for a little more cash.

Found a picture of a switched convertor

thanks for the reply - iv tried dong what that guy did - add the PC button and plugged the stb hdmi out into the scart sockets and also the yellow, red, white sockets - still nothing!. 

iv ordered an hdmi converter box as suggested by the next poster so we will see how that works out next week!.

hi stobbietoo,

 

many thanks for your reply and helpful pics.

iv ordered the hdmi2av box and i already have the 3 pin to scart part so fingers crossed this solution works!.

 

i kept my old Virgin v5 box as that has a scart output on it which works just fine on the bv7-40 / II  its just that the v6 box is 1/4 the size, can be hidden in a cupboard and still works with the remote, and can record 6 programs at same time while watching a 7th!. ( not that i ever will lol ) it's just a far more modern unit with faster responses and just works better, hence i am keen to find a way of making it work with my tv!. 

 

ill let you know what happens next week when i get back and the parts should be here to set it up - fingers crossed!

Hi

Of course it doesn’t work !

The PC button is for the DVI plug, not the SCART

It should work but if your HDMI2AV doesn't come with power you may need to find an old phone USB charger that fits to power it. As I said, mine is connected to a FireTV (HDMI) and then to my old CRT Beovision with scart only.

Providing you set the connections correctly in the TV menu I can see no reason this wouldn't work for you too.

Good luck
