Hi,

I have set up my dvr to sky box then to my tv,when i record from sky to the 604 it plays fine but play back to my tv the picture quality on my tv is not the same as what i recorded,i thought the 604 could playback at dvd quality,i know that it can't make a picture better than it was but i would have thought that it would playback the same as what it recored instead it's a bit grainy.

It can play DVD quality from files you download or rip yourself, but it doesn't record DVD quality.

The recordings are limited to VGA quality (640x480). Not a lot less than DVD, but enough to notice the difference.

How are you connecting to the TV btw?

Hopefully not composite or that will not be helping either.

If you are using the supplied SCART to RCA adapter then you are indeed using a composite input which is the lowest quality you could be using .

If you just have a normal Sky box then there isn't much you can do, but if you have Sly+ or Sky HD then use the S-Video output instead.
