I hope someone can be bothered to read all this, because I'd really like an explanation as to what's happening. I have Sky+ connected to the Panasonic DMR-E50 (TV RGB > Pana AV1 > Pana AV2 > Sky+ TV scart, as the manual instructs for recording RGB), with AV connections set to RGB in Pana set-up. However, when watching Sky+ through AV2 channel on the Panasonic, there is a distinct lip-synch problem. If I alter AV2 connection from 'Normal' to 'Decoder' in the Panasonic set-up, I can watch Sky+ through the recorder on AV1 and the lip-synch problem is gone (it's still there if I watch through AV2 on the recorder though). My question is this. If I record with the recorder set to AV1 (to avoid the lip-synch problem), am I recording an RGB picture (it certainly records something in the tests I've done)? Or is this only possible through AV2 on the recorder (meaning the lip-synch is out on the recording)? Thanks in advance for any help.
