    I have just installed a plasma screen connected to a TiVo via a JSTech RGB to Plasma box.
    I now need a video recorder for occasional use that will output though scart in RGB, but do not want to send more than approx £150.
    What models are there with this feature/price and where is the best place to get it?

    Thanks
    Mark.

    :confused: If there are no videos that output RGB, then how does everybody connect their video to plasma screens?
    TiVo only does passthrough for a video, therefore this does not convert to RGB.

    You can't convert non-RGB to RGB anyway. Most video recorders/players output composite video, through both phono connection and scart. The more expensive S-VHS' also output S-video.

    This is how they'll be connected to a plasma. It's not really an issue for most people, who will not use a video recorder as part of a HC setup in preference of a DVD player, but might use it for catching the odd TV programme, if they don't have a Hard Disk recorder (TiVo, Sky+).
