    One last thing to confirm, before I buy one

    Is is definately RGB in and does it pas through in full RGB and widescreen switching even when the unit is off?

    Also what is the fan noise like?

    I have a GX3 which does loopthrough RGB when in standby mode, and would be extremely surprised if the GX300 does not do the same. Widescreen switching also works in standby.

    As to fan noise on the GX3, I don't find it obtrusive, but have no experience with the GX300.

    Hope that helps.

    Cheers,

    Martin.

    Cheers for the info.

    Does the GX3 cope with DVDRs created on PCs?

    I haven't tried that as yet, as I've only had the GX3 for a week so far.

    Cheers,

    Martin.

    np, can I ask if you've tried discs created with the GX3 with other players or a PC? Also, what kind of media have you been successful with?

    Cheers

    I have a GX3 and can confirm that DVD -R (Finalized) can be played across most other machines without problems.

    Can the GX300 output the RGB in picture to the component out e.g. Sky+ in thru scart and out of GX300 to screen via component?

    I bet it will only output the RGB input (Sky box etc.) if switched on and the AV input selected to the RGB input. That will be the case for all DVD recorders, I am sure.
