    I have my E85 hooked up as follows/
    SKY TV RGB scart to E85 AV2
    E85 AV! to TV AV1 RGB input
    SKY and AV1 E85 set to RGB
    E85 AV2 set to normal.

    I am getting RGB no problem.
    My problem is that I ma not recording the Widescreen switching signal.
    I set the E85 to record of AV2. The picture being diplayed is WIDE as shown on my Panasonic Widdescreen TV.
    When I play back the recording it is squashed and i need to expand by using the aspect button on my TV remote.

    What makes this weird is that it was working before I moved equipmet between rooms as I have a previous recording which when played sends the WIDE signal out and swirches the TV accordingly.

    I am baffled.
    I tried changing scart leads but same.

    TIA

    If the E85 is the same as the E55, it will only record in widescreen on DVD-RAM
