I was convinced in an earlier thread to update my E30 I had pretty much decided on the HS2 when I found out some more information about the Toshiba RDXS30 (Phelings knows where ) This has really made me thing twice. It has a major drawback no RGB in only s-video. However, it does seem to have far better editing facilities than the HS2. (easier to split, add your own chapters, thumbnails etc) The method it uses to transfer to -R seems far superior and much quicker than the HS2 also. It is also a bit cheaper and IMO looks nicer too I archive around 3hrs per disc mark. I really do not think RGB would make any real difference at that mark. XP recordings maybe. I would rather have RGB, but only because I am told it is better. I have two inputs from sky+ to my TV (I would consider a half decent CRT) one is RGB one is S-video. I really do try to convince myself RGB is better, i really do. If I am honest I can tell the difference as RGB has slightly more colour, but I don't really think the picture quality is any better.
