    Hope someone can advice.

    Just set up my panny e55 and I am well chuffed with it. Because I have addiotional equipment like home theatre and video sender I have had to connect my video through video/audio cables and although the picture is decent I would like to try and improve it so that I can start putting some old movies on disc.

    Any suggestions.

    My set up is TVAV1 to Panny AV1. Panny AV2 to SKY. Video to panny through audio/video cable. TVAV2 to SKY AV2. Video sender to Panny through Video/Audio cables. Home surround to TV through SVideo lead.

    Panny is set to RGB with AV2 as normal.

    The connections to Sky and TV sound OK.

    I don't think there's anything you can do with the VCR connections unless the VHS machine has an S-Video output which could go to AV3 or AV4 of the E55.

    In any case I think you'll find that copies of VHS tapes will look just as good on DVD as the tapes did, provided you stick to a maximum of around 2 hours per disk.

    In some cases they will look better because the timebase correction in the E55 makes the pictures more stable.

    I've just bought an E55 and have been archiving my VHS and S-VHS videos from my JVC S-VHS recorder onto DVD-R discs. I'm using the JVCs S-Video out into the E55s AV4 and I've found the 2-hour setting works very well - virtually no difference on the DVD-R copies. And yes, the JVC does improve the playback of the VHS tapes too.
