Sony KDL32S2010U & Panasonic DMREH50 connection problem

ok i've just connected up my new KDL32S2010U to my panasonic dvd recorder (sony av2 <-----> panasonic av1)

the panasonic has 1 rgb input (av2) & so my ntl digital box is connected to that to enable best quality recording

whenever i switch on the panasonic, initially, the picture on the sony shows loads of wavy-interference-type lines. this is visable until the panasonic has fully switched on (about 3-4 secs) when the picture is then perfect. the same happens when i switch the panasonic off. in other words it is not a 'clean' switch over & there is something wrong in the way i have connected it all.

when i switch on the dvd player (connected to the sony av1) it is a perfectly clean switch over

whereas, if the dvd recorder is switched off & i switch it on by pressing the 'function' button (goes straight into the recorders settings), the problem does not happen. it seems that the problem happens when 2 signals interfer with each other

i've attached a few pictures of the screen taken at the moment i switch the panasonic dvd recorder on (pictures is perfect after 3-4 secs)

That's exactly how my PS2 looks when I first turn it on using RGB cable [AV1]. It doesn't happen every time but most of the time it looks like that for the first few seconds.. No problem when using an S-VIDEO cable. I also have KDL-32S2010.

Does anyone have any ideas what's causing this? It seems like the signal is out of sync for the first few seconds... :confused:
