    Hi

    I've recently brought the DMR-E50 and it is very impressive. It puts VHS tapes to shame. The recordings made using LP is very good; far superior to VHS.

    However, I do have one problem. When watching cable through the RGB Input, a slight black dropout occurs on the recording when a bright transition goes to a dark scene or vice versa such as when a bright flash occurs. This doesn't happen when the input is set to composite scart. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

    Also, would I be better of using a second DVD player to transfer material recorded on a Ram disk to a -R disk or to transfer it to a PC before burning it to a -R disk on the computer

    This has been discussed many, many times on the forums.
    Search for something like RGB E50 dropout or something.
    (It happens on the HS2 as well)
    I think the conclusion is that there is an incompatibility between the teleworst digbox (maybe other cable boxes too) and the panny recorders.
    There is no fix to this (or I have not found a fix to this) apart from use composite. If you try recording using another RGB source then you will find the problem magically dissappears.
