My dvd recorder has two scarts - one is RGB input/output and the other other is non RGB. My sky plus box has RGB output from tv scart and non RGB from the VCR scart. One only has to toggle the RGB/PAL button on the sky menu to see the much better picture RGB output gives when directly connecting the sky box to my TV. My question is does the dvd recorder actually record the better quality. I have connected the sky box to the dvd recorder using the recorders RGB input scart and recorded a program and likewise have recorded the same program using the non-RGB scart and can't tell any difference - both seemingly of PAL rather than RGB quality.
