hi there, im not very good at explaining things like this but here goes- i have a hitachi 42pd7200 and have connected it up as follows- sony rdrgx3 via component to AV4, sky+ to AV2, vhs to AV1, sony dvd recorder(line 1) to sky+ vcr scart.
my dvd recorder is set to output component and the dvd scart settings are line 1 (video) line 3 input (video/rgb) and line 3 output (s video)
my problem is that i cannot record sky+ onto a blank dvd in RGB.
I am really tearing my hair out on this one. Have i missed out a link in the chain or are my scart settings incorrect? i am sorry if this does not make much sense but i am crap at explaining things like this! any help would be great! :lease:
