Connecting old VHS recorder to new TV set?

Hello,

we bought a new TV set a few days ago, Philips, 37", HD, LED etc., pretty new, well...

I had always hoped you could still connect an old vhs recorder and watch old vhs tapes; can you? I did manage it to get it okay working, but not very good. (I'm in Europe:) The vhs recorder is generally connected via Scart and there's a Mini-Scart port on the TV set with a short cable from Mini-Scart to Scart which I used. I connected the vhs recorder and everything works more or less okay: About every 90 seconds, the image flickers with many lines in all colors. It's not terrible, but it's rather disturbing, though. Would be great to remove this problem; any ideas?

I tried another vhs recorder we had standing around, but no improvement. I checked the TV settings and the TV manual and found nothing, so far. For now, I'm out of ideas, any help?

Maybe someone has some advice. Thanks already!
Pete
