    I'm looking at getting one of these in the coming days and was just wondering if anyone who owns one could tell me if the RGB pass-thru works when the machine is in standby or if it only worked when the unit was switched on?

    Cheers,

    Well I dont have the HS2. I have the E50. But same manufacturer and pretty similar except no HD. The RGB pass through works on the E50 on or off. With no noticable loss of quality.

    I cant imagine it is any different on the HS2 but I am sure an owner will be along shortly to confirm this.

    Cheers Yonderblue, thats great news. One last question:rolleyes: I was wondering if when recording thru the RGB scart you could take the audio from one of the two phono imputs instead of the recording the audio coming thru the Scart lead?

    Cheers Again,

    You could only do this if you made up your own scart lead but why you would want to do it is beyond me! The phonos and the pins in the scart are effectively the same thing.

    Problem is Dave, when I first got my Sky Digi box I connected it up to my amp using a HQ Scart > composite+L/R audio cable and found the sound wasn't great but when connecting the phono outputs dirrectly to my amp everything was fine???? So that was the reason. Cheers for the reply.

    Regards,

    Recording DD 5.1 sound?

    If you record from Sky+ to a HS2 or any DVD Recorder can you record the sound in 5.1 format as well. Or can you not record Kky Box Office any way?

    AFAIK there aren't any recorders on the market that have digital imputs, but, apparently the soon to be released Kiss 550 DVD/Divx recorder will.
