    Firstly is it possible to pass an S-Video signal through a fully wired scart?

    I think it can

    Also

    I now have sky+ connection to my E30 via S-Video and audio leads and I have my S35 connected to my E30 via RGB scart


    So if I record to RAM from sky+ can i then transfer the RAM to -R via an RGB signal?

    Yes.

    Yes as the RGB is just a transmission signal. An extreme example is if you record from a composite VHS source onto a DVDR - you can then play that disk quite happily from an RGB output. The same applies to an S-Video sourced recording.

    I can not believe I only just found that out today


    Sorry I didn't word my question very well, what i meant was is there any point?

    in the original recording in RAM using a S-Video connection have you lost whatever made it RGB so would it matter if it was RGB or S-Video when going from RAM to -R

    Oh I see - I thought you probably knew that Bobbles :blush:

    No your quite right - there isn't much point - you won't gain anything because the initial recording is in S-Video.

    the reason I was asking was because I have the S35 set to S-video/Component so i was wondering if it was worth changing to RGB if I was recording from RAM to -R

    Well this saves a little hassle

    Hi

    Each time you make a copy, the signal will be slightly degraded - using the best possible transmission method will reduce this. Therefore, even if the source was only recorded via s-video, you will reduce the potential signal degregation by making subsequent copies using RGB.
