I have read about similar problems on DMRE-30s but not quite the same as this one. When I record to the Panny thru AV2 using RGB input I get a picture tearing problem that only occurs on fast changing scenes such as Front Row previews or especially on Canal+ multi-coloured banner before the start of a program. Not only does it record like that, it also loops thru onto the picture output when monitoring AV2 thru Av1 output. I have tried almost double figures on Scart cables and fed it from 2 digital satellite receivers and a Cable tv box all with RGB on but always get this on fast changing input. The fault does not occur with everything set to composite or S-Video. Anyone else got this or have I got a crap one. It is a Multiregional version but this should not make a difference. Also it seems to lock up the TV in terms of grabbing the AV input even when its on standby. Again this cant be right, can it?
