    I have a SKY+ box attached to my plasma media box using a Monster Scart 2 cable via TV scart out and SKY output set to RGB. PQ is fine. I then have my SKY+ box connected to a Pioneer 920 via VCR scart out using a QED 2110 performance cable however when viewing or recording SKY through my 920 the PQ is then way inferior to when I view SKY -> plasma direct ?? If you know what I mean. I have set my AV2 in to RGB on my 920. My 920 is connected to my plasma via a QED HDMI lead. Why is my SKY picute quality inferior through my recorder. Any advice plz, this is driving me nuts :mad:

    You may find it's better to loop the Sky+ box throught the recorder.
    Sky+ TV scart to Pioneer AV2 scart
    Pioneer AV1 scart to TV
    Record on to the Pioneer using AV2(L1)input.

    Forgot to say - don't forget to set Sky+ output and Pioneer input/output to RGB.

    quality cables should make little difference if the signal is digital in the first place.

    I have the same combination. Sky box scart to AV2/L1 on recorded. Everything set to RGB. Recorded to Plasma is HDMI.
