    Is it possible to record onto the internal hard drive via a source connected to the Scart inputs?

    If so, can you record in RGB, and can you record in the different resolutions SP, LP, EP etc.??

    Thanks

    Yes.

    Yes.

    Yes. The different recording modes alter the bitrate - the resolution will either be full or half resolution. XP and SP are both full resolution. FR mode upto approx. 3hrs will also be full resolution. LP, EP and FR 3hrs+ are half resolution.

    Refer to the 'Which DVD Recorder?' link in my signature for answers to the basic FAQs.

    Is it possible to transfer or copy from a DVD film onto the hard drive of the E95?

    Basically, I want to keep all my movies onto the hard drive of the E95, to playback anytime I like without inserting different DVDs.

    Only not copy protected content, i.e. your own recordings and not a commercially purchased DVD-Video. No DVD recorder will do that.

    And you can't copy from the drive in the recorder, you would have to have the non copy protected dvd play in another machine connected to the recorder.

    Can the E95 output on AV1 (as RGB) and output on the Component Video terminals at the same time?

    No it can't.

    It can output S-Video and Component or Composite and Component though.

    Actually, according to the manual (p. 37) you can indeed copy a non-protected movie from the DVD drive to the hard drive on the E95 - they added this facility just in case you need to re-edit finalized content on a DVD-R. So no external machine is necessary. :smashin:

    Don't forget that the HDD is only meant to be a temporary storage device. If anything goes wrong with it then you've lost all your films. Better to save them to disc.
