First of all apologies for the long post.... I've recently bought a panny E55 for archiving off Sky+ and it works great - for composite video! Part the reason I went for it was the RGB in and out - but if I use this the picture is so dark - it's actually worse than composite. On the Sky menu for example, the blue background is black and the white options are yellow. Consequently instead of using: SKY+(AV1 RGB) -> (AV2 RGB) E55 (AV1 RGB)-> (AV1 RGB) TV, I'm just using the SKY video scart like this: E55 (AV2 PAL) <- (AV2 PAL) SKY+ (AV1 RGB) -> (AV1 RGB) TV. Whilst it's not a show stopper, it is a constant niggle - particularly when commercial DVD's are played back - this picture is, well, not what it could be. I've taken the E55 back and swapped it for another one - exactly the same issue - I must be doing something wrong, but I don't know what! ...And another thing, in the connections menu, I have video (with component), s-video(with component) and RGB (without component) - is this normal? I'm using good 21 pin scarts to connect everything, but the 'without component' thing bothers me. Do I need to use the 3 RGB component connectors too with somekind of funky SCART? Help!!! Thanks, Spud. ps. I want to keep using the E55, the RAM thing is just so cool. Ta.
