I have just purchased the above machine to use as in place of a vcr. £222 at the local John Lewis Store!! I was really pleased to note that it can record an RGB signal via ext 2, great for Sky. I have set it up for RGB from Ext 2. However, while the recorded picture looks great, I have noticed that if I hit the services button on the Sky Remote, while viewing the alledged RGB Sky signal through the 880, hit Set Up and then Picture Settings, the Text is fuzzy, as if I was looking at the PAL signal. Furthermore, when I scroll down to the RGB/PAL setting and change it betweeb RGB/PAL there is no difference, eg the text does not sharpen up as it does when doing the same process using the direct Sky signal on the tv. My question, sorry its long winded, does this machine really record in RGB from sky, and is it just incapable of showing the change using the above process on the digi box, or does it not really record in RGB quality. Cheers, Allan.
