    Hi

    just bought a Panasonic E65. Connect my Sky+ box via the Panny to the Philips 6006TV using a brand new £40 RGB cable. However when I view Sky the picture is clear but much darker than previously and with a green shading. Am I doing anything wrong? DVD Recorder set to receive RGB on AV2.

    Might it be Scart cable? I spose I could try another one

    Thanks

    Steve

    That does sound like a fault with the Scart Cable. Try using a different one (a cheapie if necessary) to see if you still have the same problem.

    I've just swapped the cables and get the same picture. If I use the cables and connect my sky box straight to TV then the picture is fine. So it seems as if the DVD recorder is changing the image - even when switched off and signal just passing through.

    Any ideas?

    Also my Panasonic Dvd says 'unsupported' when I insert a Sony dvd r- blank disk in. Whys that?!

    Thanks

    If it's not the cable itself then it could well be a faultly connection on the DVD recorder, i.e. one of the scart pins is damaged. Probably best to seek a replacement.

    Your not trying a DVD+R are you? The unit only records/reads DVD-R.
