There seems to be mixed views on this topic. I have Sky+ connected via component to a Denon 2105 (via JS converter) for viewing, but for recording I take Sky+ directly into a Panasonic E65 (the E65 then connects separately to the Denon amp via component). I originally had Sky+ connected to the E65 via scart, but someone suggested s-video would give a better picture. Tried it out and I'm not impressed. Anyone got any ideas why PQ is not so good with s-video? Do I need to change any settings on the DVDR or Sky+ to improve things? Thanks in advance for any input.
