Just got the recorder and I have it hooked up per the manuals example, replacing the A/V cable with S Video (I have to always keep the recorder on to have to get the reults of the S-Video). IMO the picture quality is horrible when the recorder is on. It seems worse than when I had my JVC SVHS turned on. I must being doing something wrong or there's a better way to hookup this machine.
Can someone tell me the best way to hook up the equipment. I have a Sony TV (no HDTV) with one S-Video and 1 set up A/V cables, My RCA sat receiver that was issued by DSS with one S-Video and one set of A/V cables, and the E-80 recorder (obviously). Thanks
