I've just searched for the Pansonic E30 and read all the previous posts but can someone clarify a few things please. I was intending connecting it up to a Sky+ box. 1. Has anyone else connected it to a Sky+ box? I presume I can either record from Sky+ to the Pansonic via scart? This could be handy if I want to record from two Sky channels at once - how is the quality? 2. I've only one RGB scart on my TV. I know I can connect the Sky+ box to the E30 and then to the TV. Does this cause any problems with auto switching? 3. I'm sure I read on one of the posts that you could hire a DVD and then record it onto the E30. I can't figure this one out - do I need another DVD player? 4. Lastly, as I have quite a few of the features ( in my Sky+ box ) that to some people, make the E30 a better choice of recorder than the Philips, is it still the better recorder?
