as far as i know you shouldn't have to set any settings on the dbox, i may be wrong.......

mine's connected through my vcr and then to my t.v and all i do is select the input from the cable box ? make sure i'm selecting 0/AV on my tv and then select the correct scart input from the dbox ?

Can you watch it normally ?
