    Thought about using a video sender?

    Much better quality picture & audio than sending via RF. A simple setup shouldn't cost more than £50 and you can add multiple receivers if necessary.

    To playback via the RF Out requires the DVDR to have an RF Modulator.
    AFAIK the only brand to have this (although it is switched off by default) are some Panasonic models.

    The Panasonic E50 has this feature. To initiate it, you have to press and hold the 'FUNCTION' button, and then enter the required RF O/P channel number. Then program (say) channel6 on your TV to match.

    **EDIT**

    Also works on E55, just checked.

    No it can't.
    The UK model does not have an RF modulator.

    I stand corrected! You're quite right of course.

    Whilst this is a convenient solution and I do it myself with sky and plan to do it with my panasonic recorder when I get round to sorting out the connections, you do not get good sound as of course it is in mono not stereo, as the recorder does not have a nicam encoder.

    I just plug mine into my old video recorder which has a tuner mode (so it doesn't auto switch off) and use its modulator..
