I have been using RCA's VHDC300 transcoder since I bought the Pioneer back in November to hook up my DTC100 to the Pioneer 643 via component cables. This weekend I decided to try an RGB cable from the 15-pin output on the DTC100 to the 15-pin input on the 643.


The result: I'm torn.


On the one hand, sharpness is noticeably better on both DirecTv and OTA HD.


BUT, color saturation is way too high. Colors are accurate, but too intense. I'm beginning to wonder if the RCA is putting out 1V p-p when the Pioneer is expecting 0.7V p-p on its input.


I haven't found a way to reduce the color, as the block diagram in the service manual implies that the color and tint circuitry are bypassed.


Does anybody else have this problem?


I think I might go back to using the transcoder.
