Hello to everyone I have just purchased this Panasonic machine, I'll add, it's my first DVD recorder and my only knowledge of using them is by what I have read on here and in the last two hours since I started looking at it. I have set it up with scarts to a 36" Toshiba TV, no problems, it's linked using RSB in and out to TV. It's connected to my Freeview box. What I have noticed when viewing the picture through the recorder is an increase in what I believe are jaggies. The vertical edges appear to have diagional lines that give a fuzzy impression. This is just the freeview signal, not a DVD playback by the way, to clarify. First question is this, when you view the picture through the DVD recorder, is it in composite form? I ask because I'm sure dot crawl is there as well. Is this recorder increasing jaggies, because up to this afternoon I've not found it annoying. I use a Pioneer 575A for playback usually of DVD's and have never had a problem in RGB or component. If the problem is caused by the picture through the DVD being in composite form this might explain why I'm noticing this more. I will have some questions no doubt but this is really annoying me at the moment. Thanks in advance, go easy on me beacuse I'm pretty new to all this.
