    Any difference between these 2 sources ? Sky would be via good scart and RGB or possibly via component through E85 DVD recorder

    Cheers

    I find that DVB has better PQ, however the channel selection/program info/what's on next is more cumbersome on the Pana remote than the Sky one, so like to find what to watch on Sky and then if it's on 1-5 watch it on DVB.

    I agree with this. I have the new 32in Viera LCD and Channels 1-5 have better PQ on DVB than Sky. In fact I find the PQ on Sky varies considerably from channel to channel. Why is this??

    It costs money to broadcast on Dsat, the higher the picture quality the more capacity they have to buy and only Five (of the big 4) really looks top quality on Dsat. Even SKY skimp a little on SKY1 while their premium channels (movies, sports) do look good although there is always room for improvment:)

    On DTT the terrestrial channels have greater control of the capacity so therefore don't have to pay a third party for more capacity, they can choose how they assign their allocated bandwidth.
