    Sky +
    PW7 with JS RGB TO VGA convertor

    PS2>AMP
    DVD-R>AMP
    SKY>AMP
    AMP>JS>Panel
    SKY>DVD-R (VCR scart on Sky to AV2 on DVD-R)
    that way you can watch sky, record analogue or play PS2 and record sky etc SKy recording quality will not be the Best but will look much better than VHS

    Thanks for your help but its still not having it !

    I can get a picture if i go from the sky box staight to the rgb convertor but for some odd reason if i go through the pio c502 as you said i get no picture.

    so far i have only connected the sky box to the amp and the convertor to the amp.

    Weird!

    No it does not!! You need to make the TV/DVR scart the out to VGA box, the VCR one does not output RGB. It will input it but not output. Yes, I have been there before, scratched head for some time....
