    My SKY box is a Sony VTX-S760U. Does this box only output RGB from scart 1 ( TV) and Composite from scart 2 (VCR) as this would appear to be the case.
    SKY RGB output to ext2 input (RGB) on ES10 then DVD RGB output to RGB input on TV. This looks fine on current 28" Philips but The reason this is annoying me is that I'm due to get a Panasonic 42" plasma next week and want the best possible picture output and the ability to record it as well. I'm concerned that looping Sky box through Es10 will degrade the picture slightly.

    Would a high quality RGB splitter be better or just degrade PQ?

    Also is it possible for the Panny PV500 to be set so that the DVD recorder can record directly from the scart socket( sky is plugged into) on the Pv500 whilst viewing another program say on freeview or a dvdv from another player. Sorry if thats as clear as mud but hopefully it makes some sense. :rolleyes:

    This is true of all Sky digiboxes

    It doesn't degrade it through your Philips TV so the Panasonic Plasma should be the same.
    You should also sit at the correct viewing distance since it's a larger screen.....too close and you may notice artefacts on the picture if watching a programme on a low bitrate channel.

    Thanks, Confirmation on SKY boxes only having one RGB was main thing bothering me.

    I'll be 14 feet away so dont anticipate any problems.
