    A few DVD players now have a second scart connection to act as a RGB loop through so that you can plug your , example, Sky digital Box (set up for RGB).

    My question is would you get a better picture by plugging the Sky Box directly to an RGB port on the TV or would it be the same or worse ?

    I did read somewhere that by daisy chaining the UHF lead through your Video, sky box, DVD, etc you actaully IMPROVE the picture for normal TV.
    Therefore, based on that assumption it's better to view Sky through the DVD as it improves the picture ?????

    The reason the UHF signal improves is due to a slight amplification of the signal applied (usually) by the VCR.

    The RGB pass-through simply does just that - passes it through.

    In theory, there is a slight degredation in signal due to the extra bits of wire. In practice you will not notice.

    Cheers
