I am about to buy the Philps DVDR75 (or the Panasonic E50, if I can get my hands on one) and wonder whether anyone is able to advise me whether I will be able to monitor my recordings with my setup. My plasma does not have Scart; I have my DVD player connected to my plasma via Component. I have both my Sky+ box and PS2 connected to my plasma using S-Video, via my Yamaha Processor (which does the S-Video switching). Can the Philips (and the Panasonic) output via S-Video, whilst accepting an RGB input from the Sky+ box on the Scart. And similarly does the Sky+ box output on the S-video whilst also outputting via the Scart I would intend to connect Sky+ to the DVD Recorder using Scart RGB and the DVD Recorder to the Yamaha using S-Video and hence to the plasma. Does this sound feasible and will I be able to monitor what is being recorded onto the DVD recorder through the S-Video connector. To be clear, I have no desire to use the DVDR for watching DVDs nor recording from live, it will simply be to archive Sky+ recordings. Any views appreciated or anyone with similar setup who can confirm it works.
