    Sony IDTV
    How can I record RGB signals from the digital channels to my Philips DVD recorder?

    Setup:

    Aerial > Digital TV in > Loop thru to RF in of DVD Recoder

    Sky (Pace) Satellite RGB out > RGB in (AV2)of DVD Recorder

    RGB out (AV1) of DVD Recorder > RGB in (AV1) of TV socket

    There is one more RGB enabled socket on TV (AV2) unused

    I also have an extra Sony freeview digibox lying around unused

    I think TV will only output composite mate i would use the Sony freeveiw box to record SONYFV>SKY>DVDR>TV should work but you cant watch sky and record FV at the same time. If you had Sky+ then it would be easier LOL

    1)How should I connect SonyFV to Skybox?

    2) BTW, Skybox has AV1 & AV2 out. Only AV1 out is RGB signal and it is this that feeds to the DVD recorder. If I connect SonyFV to skybox how does it overide the Sky signals going to DVD ?

    It will only do composite.

    I have a Sony IDTV and a E50 DVD recorder. It will also only do composite. I bought a freeview box and connected the TV out to the AV2 of the E50.

    Sky STB will do RGB passthrough when in stand by so sonyFV>AV2SKY-SKYAV!>DVDR>RGBTV SCART
    A Quintro could over come this as it has a VCR loop like a tape loop on a stereo amp you can watch one while sending another toa recording device. IIRC that is

    If I connect the RF out lead from SonyFV to RF out of DVD, will I be able to record digital RGB signal?. Or does RF out not carry RGB?

    hornydragon, sonyFv>AV2sky-SkyAV1>DVDR>RGBTV works nicely but as u say u cant watch Sky when recording from Freeview digital. ie. on same TV. Interestingly, I have a Sky extension from the back of the Skybox to another TV upstairs and happily I find that I can record from Freeview downstairs and watch sky upstairs! Thanks for your help.
    Nwgarrat, thanks for your reply. I should have known that! Silly me.

    Not the DX20 and that is four years old in a couple of months. It only does composite.
