I have just joined to get some help please. I cannot get Terrestrial Freeview where I live so get my service from Sky Freeview; I have a Sky card. I use a PACE receiver which has two SCART sockets both of which support composite and RGB. My TV has two SCART sockets (AV1 and AV2); cycling the AV channel shows AV1, AV2 and AV2-S. I want to buy an HDD DVD recorder, primarily to timeshift using the HDD but also to archive stuff to DVD-R or DVD-RW. I want to do this using the Sky EPG, using AutoView to wake the DVD recorder out of standby. I therefore need a DVD recorder which supports this function (seems Toshiba and Panasonic do; they call it Satellite Link or External Link). For it to work properly I believe I need a recorder which wakes up quickly; the Autoview starts the programme about a minute before transmision. I am also looking for flexible recording to DVD, with variable quality (compression) to fill the disks without unused space. Has anyone (good or bad) experience of this? Can you offer tips, and can you recommend a current DVD HDD recorder for this? Based on reading specs it seemed to me that the Toshiba RD-XS25 did what I wanted, but searching this site for RD-XS25 I found a thread started by Toasty. A comment in the thread was that this box only supports RGB on its Output SCART. I do not understand the significance of this. The user manual just says connect the Satellite receiver output to AV2 (Decoder). Can anyone explain?
