    Hi all,

    Can anyone tell me if this can be done?

    Recommend any models of equipment & cables which would be required to carry out copying recorded progs from my Sky+ Box to DVD.

    Thanks. :thumbsup:

    Hi there,

    I've used a Pioneer 520H DVDR and now a Panasonic E95 DVDR with my Sky+ and all you need is a reasonable scart lead from Sky+ to the DVD recorder only problem is you cannot watch another Sky+ program whilst you are downloading the program from Sky+ to the DVD recorder.

    Just keep in mind to get the best pic quality use RGB and the Sky digibox only outputs RGB from it's "TV out" scart socket.

    Hello JayCee,
    Was you talking about Sky+ as this has 2 scarts?
    The bottom one going to my TV and the top one to my DVD recorder.
    Meaning the DVD recorder is not receiving RGB.
    Now does that mean i have to chase the RGB signal through my recorder,which is a bit of a shame as i only have 1 good (expensive)scart lead which goes directly to my tv from Sky+?.

    mmm..just found the answer in the sky/satellite forum :suicide:

    I tried chasing RGB signal through the recorder and the PQ was not as good as a straight feed from the Sky box.
    Had it set up for RGB (no component).on recorder
    Also tried RGB in and component out (component on).on recorder.(component leads a good make).
    It looked a little washed out and the Sky info bar was not as clear.It also seemed too bright.
    Maybe i'm being too fussy but i have a 50" dlp and want the optimum.
