    Hi,

    Sorry about the length email, just makes it easier if I let you know what I
    have done before you say try this and that !!

    I have recently bought the Panasonic DVDRV60 (Which I bought from Richer
    Sounds), which I'm very pleased with.

    I've just got one problem (but it's a big one):

    I connected the DVD player directly to my TV downstairs via a scart cable
    directly into the TV, I have also used the 5:1 connections to plug it into
    my surround sound system, this are all works fine.

    I then decided I wanted to have the picture from the DVD payer in my
    bedroom
    as well, so I laid a scart cable into the bed room and connected it to the
    TV upstairs via the video player, when I did this the sound and picture
    started jumping even though the scart work fine when I tried to view my sky
    upstairs.

    So I had a read on the internet and found out it was the macrovision that
    was stopping it playing as I was going via the video player, but I did not
    have any other option as my TV upstairs only has an arial input, so I did a
    bit more reading and found I could buy a RF Modulator which I could then
    connect the dvd player straight into the tv arial.

    So I bought an RF Modulator (from Maplin) and did a bit more soldering so I
    had the right connections upstairs, tested it with the Sky box which worked
    fine then plugged the DVD player into it and the picture was fine but the
    sound kept on cutting in and out when playing any dvd, so I then tried
    playing a normal music CD in the DVD player and sound came out perfect, So
    I
    guessed the Macrovision was still cutting in !!

    I tried connecting the sound via every possible audio out on the dvd
    player,
    including the headphones socket but the sound was still glitchy.

    I have now run out of all ideas and thought I would email everyone involved
    so hopeful I could get an answer

    Kind Regards

    have you tried just setting the dvd sound to stereo only for upstairs - may be a incompatibility i.e. vid can't handle 5.1 going to it?
    Your dvd has composite out, why not simply - and cheaply - connect a composite lead direct to vcr (rear or front) or tv???

    I even tried going through the headphone socket at the front of the dvd player for the sound which should be stereo, but it still mucked up !!

    I can't go via the video player as the Macrovision will cut in and the TV has only an RF input

    why not get a two source composite splitter - you know, no loss two into one jobbie direct to tv? I use one on a second set up.
