    Anyone got an idea as to why a my Sky digibox RGB signal is dimmer when daisy chained through my Sony DVPS7700 vs. when it's connected directly to the telly?

    Could poor quality cabling have an effect?

    Thanks,
    Joel

    The Sony pass through circuitry could have AGC on the signal levels, or something else reducing the RGB maximum levels (overzelous overvoltage protection, grounding resistors or caps).

    Not much you can do with the Sony really. Doesn't the Sky box have a setting to alter the contrast of the output picture? I'm sure mine does.

    Could well be "protection" circuitry. What's AGC, BTW?

    Thanks,
