Hi All, Well it's my first post so hi! Anyway, I'm looking at buying a Panasonic DMR-E85. I had heard that the unit will convert any input signal passing through, such as that from an STB, to progressive scan. Is this true? I'm interested as I will be buying a plasma TV in a month or two when I am done re-decorating. The setup would be as follows... STB (RGB) --> TiVo (RGB) --> Panny DVDR E85 (Component) --> TV So would the E85 convert the TiVo output to progressive scan during pass-thru? Also, if I was recording a terrestrial channel on the E85, could I still watch a source being passed-thru the unit? (allowing me to still watch a TiVo recording, or LiveTV from the STB whilst recording BBC1 on the Panny?) I'm thinking because the Panny would be channel BBC1, rather than AV, this could not be done? I pretty much want to watch DVDs in progressive scan via component, but also be able to record terrestrial TV on the E85 whilst watching cable or TiVo recordings. Ideally I would also like to convert the TiVo output to progressive scan to improve the PQ. Perhaps I'll just have to get a JS Tech converter between the TiVo and TV, and pass the DVDR signal though the TiVo - but I can't remember if the VCR input allows RGB. Hopefully the above waffle isn't too confusing. Many thanks for any info. Andy.
