I haven't tried the inputs on my 811, but it's probably related to the dark s-video problem. The 811 has so many problems, this is just another new one. I tried to use the 811's VCR timer yesterday and all I recorded was a black picture. The 811 turned on itself and it started/stopped the VCR just fine but no pic or sound. I tried it with the 811 on and it worked fine, so it seems when the timer powers up the 811 from being off to record a program it forgets to to send the video and sound to the VCR. Another problem to add to the list. :no

The composite video and the s-video both have the same dark picture quality problem. Dish has said that the next software update will fix that issue. I notice it most on the premium movie channels for some reason, its still noticable on others but not as bad. Maybe it's just there are more dark scenes in movies. I am patiently, well maybe not, but I am waiting for the fix to come down this month. The high def outputs are not too bad. I use s-video to the tv and composite to the VCR and both pics are dark.

I have tried the composite inputs of the 811 and they do leave something to be desired. I would not pump DVD through them. The only thing I see them good at is maybe as a starting put for Avia tuning and I am not sure that would be any good. I was disappointed to say the least and I would not even use them for camcorder viewing.

Not really the dark video issue -- these inputs have very low resolution - barely watchable. Pretty much useless except in an emergency.
