I have created a custom view page which shows all of content-A with a particular taxonomy tag. My custom view replaces the default taxonomy generated view of this content.

I would to display a block on my custom view page (showing all content-A) which shows all of content-B, content that shares the same taxonomy tag. However, when I set up the contextual filers on this second view to generate the block, I cannot retrive the the taxonomy ID from the URL of the custom view page in order so that the block will only show content-B which shares the same taxonomy tag.

Hope that explains it clearly...

Any ideas?
