    I've just received an email from a well known TV manufacturer in response to a question I asked them.

    In their TV manual they advise connecting the VCR to the non RGB scart. When I asked why, they say this is because "VCRs cannot send a signal of RGB quality to the TV".

    This is the first I've ever heard of this. Can anyone confirm if this is correct?

    Yes, VCRs do not do RGB. The TV manufacturer is indeed correct.

    I don't think there's anything technically wrong with connecting a VCR to a RGB SCART, just that it would be a waste of a RGB SCART socket on the TV, unless you're daisy chaining thru the vcr and it has RGB Pass thru.

    Not many have RGB pass thru. If you need a better signal, s-vhs is the best affordable alternative. Yes I know D-vhs is the dogs, but my bank balance would go to the dogs if I bought one.
