    I am just about to go out and buy a DAV300 Sony DVD system to set up at the InLaws - but the problem is that they only have a (Good) OLD Panasonic TV with 'RF In' round the back !

    Now - they do have a little connection gizmo that turns the 'RF In' into a composite in, so I know I can connect it to the DVD that way.

    My question is - will it work ? Anybody had any experience here ?

    I realise it will be a crappy connection for DVD but it will have to do until they uopgrade the TV.

    Thanks for your help in advance.

    Well, I'm temporarily in the same boat myself.<br />Just got a Pioneer NSDV55 system but only have an ancient 14" portable with just RF input until my 28" widescreen arrives.

    What I'm doing is using an composite AV input on my VCR to convert the signal to RF which I then output to my TV. However, I'm getting really bad problems with bright whites areas which go really jaggy, overbright and nasty making most movies nearly unwatchable (this isn't due to Macrovision as that's disabled on my system).

    Don't know if this problem is just limited to my set-up though. Anyone else ever tried anything similar? <img src="confused.gif" border="0">

    Slightly off topic here but John, could you tell me what the NS-DV55 is like when you get the widescreen to hook it up to. <br />Also, where did you get it from?
