Recording Sky


Active Member
I have the Sony STRDA1200 amp and sky hd. The dvdr is a phillips 880 and has no hd connections, so its s-video for picture and co-axial for the sound.

I wondered what is the best way to connect the dvd recorder to record sky: Directly from the sky box to dvdr or or if passing it through the receiver will enhance anything?

You will get the best recording quality if you connect the Sky box scart socket marked "TV Scart" (set to output RGB within the Sky System, Picture settings, Video output menu) to an RGB enabled scart input on the DVDR...which is usually AV2...or EXT2.
