RGB too bright on Yamada DVR-8000

    I've just bought this DVR-8000, and everything is great except for one problemette:

    The RGB output on the SCART is waay too high. It must be at least twice the proper voltage. As a result, the pictures are seriously washed out, and the only way I can get then close to normal is by turning the TV monitor's brightness and contrast down so far that the picture is too low-contrast, with grey black levels etc.

    The composite video and S-Video outputs are fine, and the workaround I'm using is to watch the S-Video signal instead. This is less than satisfactory, though <sings: 'I Want My RGB', badly>.

    I'm damn sure that there will be an engineering hack to fix this. It looks as though all kinds of setup options are available by entering 4-digit numeric values on the keypad. Trouble is, I don't know what the codes are, and going through 9999 of them will be a) tedious and b) dangerous.

    Anyone have an idea? If I can't fix this programmatically, I may have to add some resistors to the SCART plug to claw the voltage down, which will be most skanky.

    Any hints, suggestions or wild guesses most gratefully received.
