Hi I was wondering if the E85 will take the RGB signal from my SKY+ and pass it through the component outs to my Plasma? It would obviously not pass through as RGB but does it convert it to component?? Also, having never had a recorder before how does the picture and sound quality compare to playback only machines? I have a HK2550 at the moment and think its excellent but would like to be able to record onto DVD and couldnt keep both. If the E85 sound or picture quality is less than the HK i wouldn't bother changing it.
