    Hi,

    I asked the same question in another thread but I've strangely got no reply.

    The question is simple : is the internal terrestrial tuner of a Panasonic DMR-E65 or E85 directed to the SCART RGB output real-time? In fact I own a Pioneer DVR-5100 but when I watch the tuner real-time the Pioneer outputs *composite video only* from SCART! That's frustrating because the picture quality is sensibly lower on my 50" Panasonic plasma compared to the SCART RGB output I get when watching DVD or recorded DVD.

    There're rumours the Panasonic DMR-E65 or 85 can always output SCART RGB, even from the internal tuner, can anyone confirm?

    Thank you very much!

    Napp, there may be an issue specific to the Italian models. The UK Panasonic models can display the internal tuner via RGB Scart - but so can the UK Pioneer models. Accordingly I suggest you seek further advice prior to purchasing.

    Did You check with Pioneer what was their position regarding the problem? I checked here in Estonia with the same issue - no output to Scart RGB in real time.. no excuses and solutions provided. I was not happy. Hoped that they would see my point but not.
