    Is there a reason why JVC machines do not get much of a mention :confused:

    The JVC machines are excellent in performance and features but lack one crucial thing: RGB input. This prevents recording in the best possible quality from sources such as Freeview, Sky and NTL. For PC users they also use 'unofficial' resolutions during recording times between 2hrs 30mins and 4hrs which can make importing into DVD authoring programmes difficult.

    It's almost certainly referring to RGB loopthrough and RGB Output on AV1 as opposed to RGB input.

    The DR-M10 does come in black (as might others from the German retailer technikdirekt.de - if I've spelt that correctly) from Highway Hi-Fi for £190 plus free delivery if UK mainland address.

    I believe the MX1 has RGB input as its normal to assume they all have RGB loopthrough and the MX1 is the only one with RGB noted on the Scart input section.Maybe JVC have woken up at last
