This is a follow on from a thread I setup a few days ago, so sorry to go over old ground, but this problem is bugging the hell out of me Basically with the DVD player SETUP as such, NTL TV OUT (RGB) > DVD AV2 (INPUT RGB) PICTURE SET TO NORMAL DVD AV1 OUT (RGB) TO AV1 TV NTL VCR OUT to TV AV2 I was told that I could watch and record NTL in RGB. If I recorded a normal TV channel I could watch sky but only in composit with setup. This all seems fine and after help through Hornydragon and Bobones I thought I had it sorted. However I noticed last night a great increase in quality on the NTL menu screen especially with regards to text when watching through the DVD palyer on stanby mode (AV1) compared to when the machine is switched on and I watch NTL through AV1 with channel AV2 selected on the DVD player. In Stanby mode the writting on the menu screen loses much of its shapness and its certainly nowhere near the quality of plugging the NTL directly into the TV. Also on the NTL settings menu changing from RGB to Composite is interesting as when in RGB 3 small colour dots, red green and blue appear on screen, to signify the signal. Through AV1 WITH THE DVD in stand by the dots lose much of their colour making them difficult to distinguish. However switch the DVD on and watch through the players AV2 channel and the writting becomes very sharp and the 3 dots are deep excellent colours, very similar to the quality seen when NTL is directly connected. I have phoned Panasonic and was told with my setup that with the unit in standby I would get a composite picture as the dvd need power to pass an RGB signal. Is this really true? or should I have an RGB picture even when the DVD palyer is in standby? All scart connections are IXOS cables and I have double checked all the settings. Is it possible that theres a problem with some of the input, output on the DVD player? If so is there any sure fire way of testing it?
