    i've a Panny E85 on order from RGB Direct and I'm after some advise on the connections into my setup.

    Panasonic TX28PL10 tv - 2 Scart in/out (RGB enabled I think)

    Amstrad Sky Digibox - 2 scart out (1- tv, 1- vcr not sure if RGB enabled)

    Denon 5.1 av receiver.

    The intention is to use TosLink optical cable for digital input to av receiver.

    Not sure at all about the rest.

    Also any advice on cable type/manufacturer would be great.

    Thanks in advance.

    I have my setup as follows:
    Sky TV Scart --> AV2 on E85 (TV scart on Sky is RGB enabled)
    E85 AV1 --> AV1 on TV (RGB enabled)
    Sky Video Scart --> TV AV2 (Not RGB)

    The last connection is so that I can still watch Sky TV while dubbing from E85 Harddisk to DVD.

    As far as the 5.1, my surround sound amp has 2 optical inputs so I have both E85 and Sky(+) connected to optical inputs.

    You'll need to configure the E85 to accept RGB signals - easy done through the setup options.

    As for the scart cables, I'll probably get shot for saying this in this forum but all my scart cables are the crap black ones that you get free with your equipment - they do me fine but I'm not too much of an AV boff :eek:

    Hi, simple question : can the DMR-E85 output SCART RGB signal from the internal TUNER? Many DVD recorders output SCART RGB when watching DVD, but *plain composite video * when watching the internal TUNER realtime. That's frustrating!

    Actually I'm planning to buy a DMR-E65, but if the E85 can do it most probably the E65 can as well!

    Thank you very much,
    napp
