I know I have asked this question before, but in case my original poser has been miised I ask again. Is there a 'scart through' facility on thismachine as on my previous kaput Pioneer DVR420? At present when viewing NTL digital the TV screen goes blank, no soud either, when any recording starts on the JVC? As the JVC only accepts an s-video input and the NTL outputs an RGB signal I use a converter between machines. Many thanks.
