Help needed re Panasonic DMR-ES10EB

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.

I'll assume it isn't showing an RGB signal when it just passes through the Recorder then shall I?

Well, I'm sorry but this must be one of the most unhelpful forums I've ever posted on.

Many thanks for nothing.

Not one word in reply to someone new posting who isn't as up on this stuff as you experts, I'm not being funny but it's not a good start.

:eek: Chill out dude - not everyone reads the forums on a Saturday!

Anyway - the ES10 should pass through the RGB from the input SCART (AV2?)to the TV SCART just fine - mine did (though it went back for other reasons). You need to make sure the input SCART is set to RGB or RGB/Video and the Freeview box is set to output RGB. If that is how it is set, does the TV switch to it's RGB input when you switch on the box with the ES10 off? If not, then check you cabling and the SCART plugs, if they are not firmly in then you can get weird behaviour!

Hope that helps some.

Zepfan49 - maybe you could go easy on the good people of this forum and give people a chance to answer before insulting them.

Sorry folks

I was impatient.

Martin, I've got all the settings as you say. I notice that when I'm monitoring the freeview picture through the recorder when switched on the picture appears to be showing as composite. When the recorder is switched off the picture improves, ie looks like RGB. Maybe thats why you need RGB/VIDEO setting on the input. The RGB appears not to get to the TV unless the recorder is off.

The recordings are superb by the way.

Thanks for the replies.

Sorry again.
